RISC-V have great adoption and momentum. One of the key benefits of RISC-V is the ability for SoC designers to extend its instruction sets to accelerate specific algorithms. Andes’ ACE (Andes Custom Extensions) allow customers to quickly create, prototype, validate and ultimately implement custom memories, dedicated ports… Read More
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
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
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
Dan is joined by Nick Ilyadis, Senior Director of Product Planning at Achronix. With over 35 years of data and semiconductor engineering and manufacturing experience and 72 issued patents under his name, Nick is a recognized expert on software and hardware development and quality control.
We have written about eFPGA and for six years now and security even longer so it is natural to combine these two very important topics. Last month we covered the partnership between Flex Logix and Intrinsic ID, and the related white paper. Both companies are SemiWiki partners, so we were able to provide more depth and color:
In the … Read More
Dan is joined by Geoff Tate, CEO and Co-founder of Flex Logix. Geoff explains the embedded FPGA market, including some history, applications and challenges to deliver a product that customers really want. He provides some very relevant background on why Flex Logix has been so successful in this market, and what lies ahead.
GEOFF… Read More
While the ASIC market has always had its advantages over alternate solutions, it has faced boom and bust cycles typically driven by high NRE development costs and time to market lead times. During the same time, the FPGA market has been consistently bringing out more and more advanced products with each new generation. With very… Read More
Dan is joined by Dr. Yoan Dupret, the Managing Director and CTO of Menta – a leader in embedded FPGA IP cores for chips and smart sensors. Yoan explores the impact Menta’s embedded FPGAs are having on current designs. The reasons for Menta’s success and where the impact will be in the future are both discussed as well.… Read More
In the world of financial trading, nanoseconds count. The faster a trade can be accomplished, the more money a trader can make. Getting a trade in before a competitor also results in improved profits. What does this have to do with the partnership deal recently inked between Silicon Creations and Achronix? Plenty. The two companies… Read More
