Take advantage of an AMD Premier Partner

As the inaugural AMD Premier North American Design Services partner, Fidus receives exclusive training, certification and early-access to tools, IP, and new silicon. This means you get top preference within the AMD support network to de-risk your projects.

FPGA design

As the inaugural Premier AMD Adaptive Computing Partner, our versatile (VHDL or Verilog) FPGA team achieve fabric speeds in the 100s of megahertz, timing closure at high utilization, and maximum power efficiencies.

Using the latest AMD and Intel design tools, our work includes high-end Versal™ and Agilex™ projects to cost-effective Artix™ and Cyclone™ designs. From high-speed I/O like DDR5, PCIe Gen4/5, NVMe, Interlaken, 32G+ SERDES, and DSP to optimizing a system by utilizing both Arm processors and fabric like AMD Zynq UltraScale+™/ Zynq RFSoC™ along with Agilex™ SoC’s,  Fidus is the leading choice for FPGA design services.
