How Secure Are FPGAs?

The unique hybrid software/hardware nature of FPGAs makes them tempting targets for cyberattacks, while also enabling them to rebuff attacks and change the attack surface before significant damage can be done. But it's becoming increasingly challenging to address all the potential vulnerabilities. FPGAs are often included in larger systems, each with their own unique attack vectors as well a... » read more

Cut Power + Cost 5 – 10x: Integrate FPGA In Your SoC

FPGA chips are high cost devices with a high profit margin for the manufacturer: this goes away when you integrate. FPGA packages are large and expensive because of the large number of very high speed signals that require expensive signal integrity design and packaging layers. When you integrate this goes away. And you save the board area the FPGA package took; and eliminate expensive voltage r... » read more
