“PIQL has chosen Chevin Technology’s FPGA based 10Gbit Ethernet XGMAC to provide high-performance connectivity in its digital data archiving and retrieval equipment. We are pleased with the way it performs in our high-availability PIQL® Writer & Reader systems, which have both been in constant use since 2013″

“Visitech have worked with Steinn Gustafsson and Chevin Technology since 2005. The Chevintech people are all team players, who are easy to work with on project tasks, and who gives valuable input to the project teams. We have only good experience with Steinn and the Chevintech team, and can recommend this team to all that needs highly specialized personnel on FPGA , digital communications and embedded systems.”

“3D perception is currently working with Chevin Technology. After only a short introduction to a complex architecture, Steinn Gustafsson has been able to pinpoint bottlenecks and areas for improvement in our FPGA designs. Chevin is very pleasant to work with, and it has been easy to get the teams to work together. We are very impressed by their flexibility in accommodating our needs in this project.”

“We have worked with Chevin Technology for several years. Their responsiveness and flexibility has allowed us to extend our team with the engineers at Chevin Tech. They have worked as an integral part of our own development team, whilst incurring minimal management overhead for us. The technical insight and capabilities of Chevin Tech is indisputable”
