Custom solutions

A strong technical culture dedicated to your own special project

60% of REFLEX CES activity is the development of Full Turnkey Designs, or Custom Solutions, based on our clients' specific requirements.

We have the technical capabilities to address complete systems as well as offering partial design services such as: Hardware, Firmware, Software, Mechanics, CAD P&R, PCB stacking definition, Signal Integrity with Hyperlynx simulations, certifications, …

FPGA expertise

REFLEX CES, with 17+ years of experience designing with FPGAs (Altera/now Intel PSG and Xilinx) can assist our customers with an interface mapping verification process using Vendor tools (Quartus and Vivado).

The goal is to study the balance of critical resources such as Memory (DDR2/3/4, QDR2/2+/4, Flash…), high-speed transceivers (up to 28Gbps for current devices), as well as general purpose IOs, clocking and power trees. Following this full analysis, a report is delivered with our conclusions and recommendations.

ReFLEX CES, using our experience in complex systems, can also guide our customers during the architectural stage and can help choose the right devices to address the project requirements.

FPGA design :

  • VHDL and Veriloglanguages
  • Stratix families, Arria families, Cyclone families, Max families from Intel PSG (formerly Altera)
  • Virtex families, Kintex, Artix families from Xilinx
  • Virtex families, Kintex, Artix families from Xilinx
  • Implementation of development tools: Quartus Prime, Vivado, SignalTap, ISE, ChipScope/ILA, Transceiver Toolkit, IBERT, ModelSim
  • IP designs and implementation: PCIe, 10/40/100GbE, Memory controllers (DDR2/3/4, QDR2/2+/4…), Serial Lite, Aurora, Profinet, Gigabit Vision, …

Board & PCB Design

REFLEX CES’ PCB Board design is based on high-performance FPGA. It relates to high speed (up to 28 Gbps) and signal integrity design services: Video, Ethernet, DDR4, PCIe, SATA, USB…

REFLEX CES has an integrated CAD (computer-aided design) department, and so a long internal expertise on complex HDI boards’ routing. For customers, this expertise ensures a low error rate and a really high reactivity.

Design includes:

  • High-performance FPGA systems
  • Form factors: COMe, PCIe, SoM, QSeven, SBC, PC/104, ATX, custom…
  • PCB design services: HDI, flex-rigid, +20-layers…
  • System prototyping, manufacturing and test

System & Mechanical designs

The design of custom and semi-custom mechanical and system is also part of REFLEX CES’ activity. Thus, REFLEX CES handles the board and the system, and customers only have a single point of contact for their all project.

From a standard to a ruggedized application, we then offer you a complete and complex system, resistant to most difficult environments:

  • Fully customized solution, COTS systems design
  • Different form factors: custom, 19’’ chassis…
  • System prototyping, manufacturing, integration, assembly and test
  • Complex system design integrating digital, analog, RF sub-systems
  • Thermal and mechanical solutions, cabling, integration and test

Software and BSP

The process ends by a complete software design expertise to satisfy specific customer requirements from embedded Board Support Package (BSP) to end-user applications :

  • x86 based CPU or On-board CPU (ARM SOC (Intel PSG/Xilinx) and PowerPC/QorIQ) technologies
  • BSP (bootloader, drivers, filesystem and libraries) and application (command line, Graphical User Interface, web site…) development
  • Windows and Linux driver development
  • C/C++, script (python, perl, shell), Web development (html5, php, javascript …) … languages
  • Linux, Windows, FreeRTOS Operating Systems
