hd Lab, Inc.
hd Lab, Inc. was founded in April 1996 with the mission to become the leading solution provider of complex digital design for the electronic industry. Since its inception, hd Lab has focused on developing comprehensive services and products. The company has maintained strong expertise area in the HDL (hardware description language) design phase of ASIC (application specific integrated circuit) and IC (integrated circuit) design. The company is based in Shin-Yokohama, Japan (near Tokyo) and has been serving customers in both Japan and United States.
As the complexity and the density of ICs increase, IC designers and architects adopt various EDA (electronic design automation) tools such as: system-level design tools, HDL tools and synthesis tools. These cutting edge design tools have become a necessity for successful design projects. However, simply acquiring and installing these design tools are not enough. To succeed, besides requisite proper design tools usage and operation (EDA Knowledge), design engineers must possess not only thorough circuit application and system design expertise (Design Knowledge), but also comprehensive and well thought out design methodology (Design Methodology).
hd Lab offers services in these 3 major areas:
* EDA Knowledge
* Design Knowledge
* Design Methodology
The company melds these 3 major areas of operation as a basis of its service and product offerings. In order to maximize design engineering output, adoption of this know-how and methodology some time requires complete design culture change within a company. These are comprehensive services delivered by the company's consulting services professionals.
