Benefits of Using FPGA and eFPGA IP in your Design

Bob Siller,Director, Product Marketing

While FPGAs have been around for over 30 years, eFPGA IP is a relatively new technology that is now finding its way into high-volume applications. Modern eFPGA IP support the same 7nm process technology as high-performance standalone FPGAs.

Automotive ASICs

Embedded FPGAs for Next-Generation Automotive ASICs

Bob SIller,Sr. Marketing Manager

For anyone who has looked at new cars lately, it's hard not to notice how quickly automotive electronics are advancing. Looking at automotive safety technology from just three years ago vs. today, you see a significant increase in the number of cameras to support applications such as surround-view display, driver distraction monitors, stereo vision cameras, forward-facing and multiple rearview cameras.Speedcore

Speedstet7t NoC Improves Performance

Increase Performance Using an FPGA with 2D NoC

Huang Lun,Sr. Field Applications Engineer

Achronix Speedster7t FPGAs feature a revolutionary new two-dimensional network on chip (NoC), which provides >20 Tbps ultra-high bandwidth connectivity to external high-speed interfaces and for routing data within the programmable logic fabric. The NoC is structured as a series of rows and columns spread across the Speedster7t FPGA fabric. Each row or column has two 256-bit data paths using industry standard AXI data format, which support 512 Gbps data rates.

What is an FPGA and Why the Answer is Changing?

Bob SIller,Director, Product Marketing

What is an FPGA? With the advent of new FPGA architectures, the answer has changed more in the last two years than ever before. Traditionally, an FPGA or field programmable gate array, is a reconfigurable semiconductor device comprising programmable logic gates and interconnect or routing, connected to multipurpose I/O pins.  An FPGA can be reprogrammed to perform any function, and its functionality can be changed over time.
