About us

ECSPEC, Embedded Computing Specialists, is a team of highly-skilled experts in embedded systems design.

As platform architects and R&D experts with over 15 years of experience, we work hand in hand with our clients to create customized embedded computing solutions. We are dedicated to help customers to develop innovative products.

We look forward to tackling your next technology challenge.

Innovate with real computing solution architects

Be sure to use the right methodology to efficiently solve your next computing challenge.

At ECSPEC we are real computing architects with a track record of over a decade in many-core, compiler, ASIC, microarchitecture, OS and computing platform architecture.

We work alongside you at critical steps such as solution exploration, trade-off analysis and identification of bottlenecks.

Leverage advanced IP designed by experts

We are a highly professional team, qualified to Ph.D. level, committed to finding the best solution for every customer.

Benefit from our advanced R&D services to invent key IP that allows to create your next products.

We have designed multiple pieces of high quality IP for our customers, many of which have gone on to protection by patent

Accelerate your application with FPGA & many-cores

Innovative applications need a large amount of resource. We accelerate the latest applications using heterogeneous, many-core and HLS FPGA solutions.

The latest code analysis tools provide thorough understanding of an application based on its dynamic behaviour. Such an insight supports the automatization that alleviates the burden of parallelization or HLS pragma insertion.

We leverage the latest dynamic code analysis tools to speed up code acceleration for edge computing and cloud.

Solutions for your application domain

We have 10+ years of experience with track records in:

  • Image processing acceleration
  • Deep learning implementation
  • Secure edge IoT
  • High-speed signal processing
  • Telecommunication
  • SDR
  • Fintech

Cross-Layer Expertise
