ArcticPro™ Ultra-Low Power eFPGA

Build Flexibility and Differentiation Into Your Next Low Power SoC

Low power SoCs are constantly required to include new and innovative functions. As a result, designers are looking for hardware solutions with the flexibility to add new features and still meet tight deadlines. Adding ArcticPro™ ultra-low power eFPGA is an ideal solution that can be customized to implement post production changes without costly and time consuming redesign.

 

Why Embedded FPGA

  • Flexibility
    • Supporting changing requirements, multiple un-ratified standards, multiple chip variants
  • Lower R&D Costs
    • Reduces total development cost and time to bring multiple SoCs to market
  • Increase Performance
    • Integration in of eFPGA into SoC increases performance by eliminating chip-to-chip delays
  • Lower System Power Consumption
    • QuickLogic has optimized eFPGA from the ground up for low power
    • Possible integration of hardware accelerators using programmable logic to offload main CPU
  • Fine-Grain architecture
    • LookUp Tables
      • Two independent LUT3s or One LUT4
    • Multiplexers
      • Up to 8:1 mux & independent 2:1 mux
    • Optional Flip Flop
  • Multiple inputs and outputs enable independent logic to share the same logic cell
    • This leads to much higher logic cell utilization in 'real life' designs
