Menta is a unique embedded FPGA (eFPGA) company. Their eFPGA IP is based completely on standard cells provided by the foundry, the customer or a third party – no custom cells or custom cell characterization is needed. They also don’t require any specific library, process step or metal stack. All this makes Menta’s eFPGA IP easy to… Read More

They say that getting there is half the fun. On December 1, Achronix and Samtec will present a webinar on this topic in the context of high-performance front panel to midplane and midplane to backplane channel design. Technology, materials and system design will all be discussed with a focus on achieving 112Gbps PAM4 channels with… Read More
Technology typically evolves in waves. Sometimes it’s referred to as a “revolution” or an “age”. The industrial revolution and the information age are examples. These kinds of categorizations help to clarify the impact of innovation in ways that are relevant to everyone – you can’t look away if the world is changing around you.… Read More
In April, I covered a new AI inference chip from Flex Logix. Called InferX X1, this part had some very promising performance metrics. Rather than the data center, the chip focused on accelerating AI inference at the edge, where power and form factor are key metrics for success. The initial information on the chip was presented at … Read More
Since the start of PROMS, PLDs and FPGAs we have learned the importance of programmability in modern semiconductor design. Today we have eFPGAs for “design adaptive” embedded programmability and that is what this webinar is all about.
Several key points are discussed starting with the Law of Accelerating Returns as it applies… Read More
FPGAs are a popular method to implement hardware accelerators for applications such as AI/ML, SmartNICs and storage acceleration. PCIe Gen5 is a high bandwidth communication protocol that is a key enabler for this class of applications. Putting all this together presents significant demands on the FPGA for performance and … Read More

Menta is a semiconductor IP provider. We are the only proven European provider of programmable logic to be embedded inside customers’ SoCs and ASICs. This programmable logic is in the form of embedded FPGA IP. So, we offer our customers the possibility to have a small portion of their SoC as… Read More
Blogging is not an easy thing to do. It takes time, patience, commitment, and creativity. SemiWiki brought blogging to the semiconductor industry and many companies have followed. Very few have been successful with personal or corporate blogs but as a premier semiconductor blogger I have developed a proven recipe over the last… Read More
Achronix came to SemiWiki in 2017 and we added a chapter on the history of Achronix in our update version of “Fabless: The Transformation of the Semiconductor Industry”. So yes we know quite a bit about Achronix and the FPGA business so it was a pleasure to do a CEO Q&A with Robert Blake. First lets take a look at his … Read More
eFPGA is now widely available, has been used in dozens of chips, is being designed into dozens more and it has an increasing list of benefits for a range of applications. Embedded FPGA, or eFPGA, enables your SoC to have flexibility in critical areas where algorithm, protocol or market needs are changing. FPGAs can also accelerate… Read More
