System and Architecture Development
The most important part of any product development is to define the system and architecture in such a way that target requirements can be fulfilled. With Catena´s multi-discipline competence, we can partition the system optimally between analog/digital and hardware/software. This results in competitive and robust products that can be ramped up to production with good yield and high quality.
During the system and architecture development phase, our system experts works together with the customer to clarify requirements and propose viable trade-offs. System models are developed, often in Matlab and Simulink, to verify that performance can be met. System modeling is supported by initial block level designs, that make it possible to estimate die areas and other important specifications.
