Toward Domain-Specific EDA


More companies appear to be creating custom EDA tools, but it is not clear if this trend is accelerating and what it means for the mainstream EDA industry. Whenever there is change, there is opportunity. Change can come from new abstractions, new options for optimization, or new limitations that are imposed on a tool or flow. For example, the slowing of Moore's Law means that sufficient prog... » read more

eFPGAs Bring A 10X Advantage In Power And Cost


eFPGA LUTs will out-ship FPGA LUTs at some point in the near future because of the advantages of reconfigurable logic being built into the chip: cost reduction, lower power, and improved performance. Many systems use FPGAs because they are more efficient than processors for parallel processing and can be programmed with application specific co-processors or accelerators typically found in da... » read more
