Speedcore Embedded FPGA IP
Speedcore embedded FPGA (eFPGA) IP has brought the power and flexibility of programmable logic to ASICs and SoCs. Customers can integrate a Speedcore eFPGA into an ASIC or SoC for high-performance, compute-intensive and real-time processing applications such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), 5G wireless, networking, storage and automotive.
What is an eFPGA?
An embedded FPGA (eFPGA) is an IP core that is embedded within a custom ASIC or SoC device. The IP can be licensed for use similar to that of other IP used in semiconductor designs. Unlike the design process for a standalone FPGA, eFPGA designers can select the exact amount of logic, DSP (or MLP), 2D NoC and memory resources required for their customer's application. An eFPGA can also be used when flexibilty is needed while lowering system cost, power and board space by eliminating the excess features of the standalone FPGA which are not required when moving into high-volume production.
Achronix is the only high-end FPGA supplier who provides both discrete FPGAs as well as eFPGA IP proven in production applications.
Benefits of Speedcore eFPGAs
There are many benefits to embedding Speedcore technology into an ASIC or SoC. Compared to a separate standalone FPGA, Speedcore IP offers:
