Use Case eFPGA Complementing Signal Processing

Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) have long been celebrated for their unmatched flexibility and programmability compared to Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs). And the introduction of Embedded FPGAs (eFPGAs) took these advantages to new heights. eFPGAs offer on-the-fly reconfiguration capabilities,… Read More

Achronix eFPGA IP

With our continuing chiplet coverage I found this of great interest. I have always felt that eFPGAs and chiplets are a natural fit for the next generation of chip design and this is an excellent example. As we design with chiplets one of the challenges is verification/validation in regards to performance and interoperability. … Read More

Open Chiplet Economy

The emergence of chiplets as a technology is an inflection point in the semiconductor industry. The potential benefits of adopting a chiplets-based approach to implementing electronic systems are not a debate. Chiplets, which are smaller, pre-manufactured components can be combined to create larger systems, offering benefits… Read More

Renesas ForgeFPGA Evaluation Board features Flex Logic ELFX 1K low-power programmable logic tile

When you think “FPGA,” what comes to mind? Massive, expensive parts capable of holding a lot of logic but also consuming a lot of power. Reconfigurable platforms that can swallow RTL for an SoC design in pre-silicon testing. Big splashy corporate acquisitions where investors made tons of money. Exotic 3D packaging and advanced… Read More
