What We Do

Silicon Insider was founded in 2001 to serve high-tech investors, engineers, and marketing professionals. Since that time we've served every major hardware and software company in the industry, including Intel, AMD, Microsoft, Texas Instruments, ARM, MIPS, new startups, and many others. Our services include product analysis, management consulting, technical reviews, writing and editing, and legal expert testimony, among others. Most client engagements are confidential, though many clients are happy to discuss our relationship. I hope I can soon count you among my satisfied clientele. — Jim Turley

We offer a number of interrelated product and services, including:

  • In-depth analysis of microprocessor designs, on both commercial and technical criteria
  • Private feedback on upcoming product designs before they're released to the public
  • Crafting custom articles and white papers for publication
  • Competitive analysis of embedded-systems products
  • Live-event management and content generation, such as for conferences and seminars
  • Panel moderation, keynotes, educational talks, and fun lunchtime presentations
  • Interim or full-time management as CEO, CTO, or CMO
  • Expert witness / testimony on matters relating to IP licensing
  • Assistance for startups creating or licensing semiconductor IP
  • Assistance in selecting the right microprocessor or microcontroller for a given application
