Using the device creation flow, the designer can choose the size of eFPGA that needs to be embedded in their ASIC. Aurora then facilitates configuration of the I/Os so that the connections with the ASIC side can be easily decided.
QuickLogic is an OEM partner with Mentor Graphics Precision for the eFPGA synthesis solution. Mentor Graphics Precision is enhanced to support QuickLogic’s ArcticPro and ArcticPro2 architectures, and generates an optimal netlist by considering the architecture details of the device, which is very important for implementation flow.
The netlist generated by Mentor Graphics Precision is imported in Aurora, through which the designer runs the implementation flow. Tools such as Logic Optimizer, Placer and Router, which are extremely important to meeting the performance requirements of the eFPGA, are optimized for better quality of results. eFPGA requires a combination of high performance and efficient area utilization and our P&R tools with their efficient Algorithms cater well to these critical eFPGA requirements.
