Case Study: Altera
In 2011 and 2012, Altera Corporation released a new floating-point design flow intended to streamline the process of implementing floating-point digital signal processing algorithms on Altera FPGAs, and to enable those designs to achieve higher performance and efficiency than previously possible. BDTI evaluated this new approach to assess the performance of the resulting designs and its ease-of-use, then published two white papers.
Success story #137
A large semiconductor company was introducing a new class of chip and simultaneously trying to enter a market where it hadn’t previously competed. Prospective customers were skeptical of the company’s ease-of-use claims. Find out how the company used BDTI’s independent analysis services to attract customer attention and gain credibility in a new market . . .
BDTI-Branded Custom Reports
BDTI-branded Custom Reports increase sales of your products by providing a technically credible and honest, user-oriented evaluation of your technology.
If you’re in charge of marketing or selling a processor, tool, core, or FPGA, you know gaining your customers’ trust is a huge challenge. Sure, you know your product is great, but you can talk until you’re blue in the face and your customers will still be skeptical. After all, you’re delivering a sales pitch . . . and they’ve heard it all before.
This is where BDTI can make a huge difference.
BDTI is known and trusted throughout the embedded processing community for its thorough, honest, and accurate reports. We can produce a BDTI-authored and -branded report about your product that will highlight its performance and ease of use, its strengths and weaknesses. BDTI will communicate the value of your product to your customers clearly, credibly, and honestly.
But don’t take our word for it—in the words of one systems designer, “If BDTI says it, I believe it.”
