FPGA has become strategic technology. It used to be a “poor man’s ASIC” and provided a customized IC for lower-volume applications. While it is still used this way in many systems, it has also become strategically important to two very big, high-growth applications

We’re already experiencing the effects of our world’s changing climate—devastating wildfires, prolonged droughts, torrential flooding, just to name a few examples.

Advanced robotics that can manufacture autonomous vehicles. Humanitarian mapping that addresses the impacts of environmental injustice, human rights violations, and global pandemics. Digital imagery for diabetic retinopathy screening.

2022 was a big year for the electronics industry. From the continued growth of AI (both in end devices and in chip design itself) to the emergence of more ways to design in the cloud, the level of innovation we saw was impressive.

System companies are taking a more proactive role in co￾designing their hardware and software roadmaps, so it’s no surprise that…

Super-fast data transfer and efficient data processing form the backbone enabling a wide array of modern applications, from video conferencing and e-commerce to big data-fueled scientific and medical research, cryptocurrency mining, and cloud-based business collaboration.

5G, networking, cloud storage, defense, smart home, automotive, and others – are looking to embedded FPGAs (eFPGA) to save power and reduce cost.

Back in the day, it wasn’t uncommon for large semiconductor companies to maintain their own proprietary processors that were designed with their specific applications in mind.

One issue with today’s modern design flow is the access to “Trusted Fabs” for confidential designs.  Just too many eyes…

One of the biggest advantages that the cloud provides for doing chip design using electronic design automation (EDA) tools, is the virtually unlimited and advanced compute resources that deliver the capacity chip designers need.
