FCD is a leader in providing services in Machine learning, ASIC and FPGA logic design, and ASIC and FPGA functional verification.

In the last 22 years, many tens of companies have used our services and we are proud to be part of their success.

FCD was established in 1995 by Zvi Netzer, MSc. in electrical engineering from the Technion institute in Israel.

Before establishing FCD Mr. Netzer served in different positions in Intel Corporation.

Zvi Netzer motto of “there is no problem that can’t be solved” influences the spirit of the whole company. We have done for customers things they did not believe are possible. FCD engineers are experienced in ASIC/FPGA design and verification in different domains, including Video cameras and processing, Ethernet and other communication standards, medical equipment and more.

In the last years as machine learning is accelerating, FCD allocated engineers specializing in Deep Learning, computer vision, natural language processing and machine learning. Extending the number of services FCD offers its customers.

FCD has 4 centers, one in Israel and three in Romania.
