Service Portfolio

rsyocto was founded to take over and automate the complex SoC FPGA development so that its partners can focus on their big thing by getting their applications accelerated with groundbreaking SoC FPGAs.
We can take over the complete product development from the first idea to the finished SoC FPGA product in planning, engineering and product life cycle support.

rsyocto gives the protection of the intellectual property (IP) and the privacy of its partners the highest priority. If necessary, we are happy to sign specific Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) so that nothing stands in the way of a successful partnership.
