Expand Your Semiconductor’s Market With Programmable Data Planes


In nearly every communication interface today, many challenges exist. Not only must networks manage high volumes of data traffic, they must also be highly aware of malicious data intrusions. With increasing data moving though these networks, combined with demand for faster response times and lower latency, high performance packet processors came into existence as these were the only mechanisms ... » read more

Enabling Long-Lasting Security For Semiconductors


There’s no doubt we live in a world where technology is highly intertwined within our daily lives. It has become pervasive in our homes, our automobiles and, critically, at our work. With so many access points into our lives, we’ve not only become extremely vulnerable to data collection, but more devastatingly, hackers. Today, hackers have more time, resources, available training and motiva... » read more

eFPGA Gives You FPGA Speed And Density At Much Less Cost And Power


FPGAs are everywhere in all types of systems for their flexibility and quick time to market. As your volumes grow and you consider an ASIC to cut cost and power, you can now incorporate an embedded FPGA to continue to give you flexibility for the parts of your chip that need to adapt for changing standards, improving algorithms and customer optimizations. If you are an SoC designer, you c... » read more

More than 40 chips have been licensed to use EFLX eFPGA and >20 chips are working in silicon. Big customers like Renesas are planning high volume families of chips using embedded FPGA. As a result, we have gained extensive experience and knowledge in almost 10 years of doing eFPGA especially in production test for cost reduction and reliability improvement. eFPGA DFT and MBIST for high q... » read more

The Challenge And Value Proposition of eFPGA Emulation


More than 40 chips have been licensed to use EFLX eFPGA and more than 20 chips are already working in silicon. Big customers like Renesas are planning high volumes and families of chips using eFPGA. eFPGA is being used in process nodes from 180nm to 5nm, with 3nm and 18A in evaluation. Especially for the high-volume customers working in advanced finFET nodes, the strong need is for first ... » read more

Use Cases And Value Proposition Of eFPGA


Flex Logix EFLX eFPGA is the first eFPGA that enables a customer to match the performance of FPGAs from AMD/Xilinx and Intel (in the same process node) with the same density (LUTs/mm2). EFLX eFPGA has been in use with customers now for more than 5 years, hardware and software. More than 40 chips have been licensed to use EFLX eFPGA and more than 20 chips are working in silicon. Big customers... » read more

The Next Generation Of Embedded FPGA


EFLX eFPGA has been in use in SoCs for more than 5 years, hardware and software. More than 40 chips have been licensed to use EFLX eFPGA and more than 20 chips are working in silicon. Big customers like Renesas are planning high volumes and families of chips using eFPGA. As we have worked with customers our architecture has evolved from EFLX Gen 1.0 to Gen 2.0, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 and now in 2023 ... » read more

Fully Reconfigurable DSP: As Fast As Hardwired At ~2x Area/Power


Today if you want high performance DSP you have three choices: Hardwire your function – zero flexibility Use DSP IP based on VLIW Use FPGAs with DSP MACs or math engines What we hear from customers is that there is a growing need for very fast and very flexible DSP, which hardwired solutions can’t address. And that the fastest solutions are FPGAs, but they are big, high pow... » read more

Issues And Challenges In Super-Resolution Object Detection And Recognition


If you want high performance AI inference, such as Super-Resolution Object Detection and Recognition, in your SoC the challenge is to find a solution that can meet your needs and constraints. You need inference IP that can run the model you want at high accuracy. You need inference IP that can run the model at the frame rate you want: higher frame rate = lower latency, more time for dec... » read more

Connect To Any Chip With Programmable GPIO


Your MCU/SoC today may have several options for GPIO connections: UART, SPI, I2C. But there are dozens of variations and kinds of GPIO interface protocols: you don’t have enough pins to provide all of them as hardwired options. As a result, a significant number of your customers either can’t use your chip because they need to connect to another with a GPIO interface you don’t support, ... » read more
