Owing to confidentiality, we are not in a position to divulge any information regarding our ongoing projects. However, to showcase, we would like to tell you about ARINC 818 based single board computer, that has been developed with the Govt of India, under the TDFS schemes.

Logic Fruit takes pride in sharing that we are the first one to deliver the project under this scheme.

What application areas are your strongest?

Logic Fruit technologies has been primarily working on Aerospace & Defense, Test & Measurement, Semiconductors and Telecommunications. We are using our skill set around System Architecture, hardware design, RTL development, and SW design, to develop a complex heterogeneous to handle various kind of applications requiring real time high compute processing power.

What keeps your customers up at night?

Time to market, missing capability around FPGA technologies, a team who can deliver.

What does the competitive landscape look like and how do you differentiate?

Logic Fruit technologies is one of the leading product engineering companies with expertise in most advanced global technologies especially in FPGAs and Heterogeneous systems.

Our key differentiators are the expertise of working with FPGAs from over 20+ years and the over 50+ RTL IPs that we have built over the years, helps us to develop end-to-end solutions for our customers by reducing their overall development time and increase their confidence with our proven technologies in the end product.

What new features/technology are you working on?

Logic Fruit Technologies vision is to be a leader in Deep Technology Solutions by having various IPs around high-speed interfaces, programmable HW while delivering reliable, efficient, and scalable solutions to its global clients using our ever-growing IP portfolio and engineering capabilities.

We also look forward to being an effective contributor to Indian Government’s “Make in India” initiative specifically in the domain of Aerospace to Indianize complex systems.

How do customers normally engage with your company?

There are multiple channels how customers can engage with us e.g. online through website (https://www.logic-fruit.com) social media (LinkedIn, twitter), email (info@logic-fruit.com) and offline like referrals, in person events, Tech conferences etc. As we are in R&D profession so we have very strong NDAs in place and we keep our projects privacy at top priority and that is why we are able to work with defense and aerospace sector for more than a decade now.
