Encore Semi partners with its customers to provide expert assistance for the execution of strategic projects and roadmaps. “We combine our expertise, resources, tools, methodologies and long-term commitment, to build solutions that enable our clients to achieve their goals,” says Lauvray. In a more dynamic situation referred to as on-demand resource augmentation, Encore Semi also “patches” the individual gaps that clients may have in their projects. In all engagements, Encore Semi’s strategy is to inject specific domain expertise at the silicon/firmware level to bring more value in SoC projects: acceleration, optimization or risk mitigation.
We bring the right expertise and resources to our clients, linking the dots between technologies, IP, SoC and Systems
Customization services for derivative products is another area where Encore Semi has carved a niche for itself. One of Encore Semi’s clients received numerous requirements for customized SSDs, which they could not turn down. However, catering to client requests affected the company’s R&D roadmap. When brought onboard, Encore Semi, with its mastery over developing enterprise-grade firmware, handled the pipeline of customization requests, including new feature development, testing, and validation. “It was a win-win collaboration where we helped achieve faster time-to-market without disrupting their R&D efforts,” says Lauvray. The company enjoys similar levels of trust and success with many global organizations.
To cater to its clients who are global leaders in semiconductor, system engineering, telecom, and automotive domains, Encore Semi has the ambition to expand its operations internationally, starting with China. Although the company already enjoys multiple expertise, Lauvray sees a need to continuously expand their service portfolio. He draws the analogy of a chef to illustrate the company’s objectives. “We gather the best ‘ingredients’ and continuously add more, we listen to what clients want, and we cook them a savory recipe that keep them thrilled about working with us.”
