Licensing our eFPGA IP

You might have seen the press release that we issued this morning regarding Nations Technologies (a leader in China’s IC design industry) selecting our ArcticPro eFPGA for their next-generation low power IoT SoC. This press release reflects the formalization of the relationship we mentioned during our last earnings call. In that call, we discussed signing […]

ASICS versus FPGAs versus ASICs with eFPGA Technology

I am often asked about the differences between ASICs, FPGAs, and ASIC-with-embedded FPGA (eFPGA) blocks and so I thought I would devote a blog article to that topic. Here goes… Once upon a time, there were ASICs (“Application Specific Integrated Circuits”, for the uninitiated). These were (and are) semiconductor devices designed to implement a very […]

Convergence of Voice Control and the One-Watt Initiative Driving Unique Requirements in Smart TVs and Home Appliances

The primary application for QuickLogic’s EOS S3 Ultra-Low Power Voice and Sensor Platform is mobile, battery-powered devices that require both always-on wake word detection and extended battery life. As recently as a year ago, if anyone told me there would be a compelling use-case for wall powered devices I wouldn’t have believed it, or at […]

Software Before Silicon?

One of our mantras at QuickLogic has always been “software before silicon.” Why? Just as a computer is a useless collection of hardware without an operating system and applications software, the same is basically true for FPGAs without our customers’ designs mapped into our architecture. Sure, we provide a lot of clever integrated functional building […]
