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 […]

Machine Voice Recognition Becomes More Human

In a typical day, we each probably have dozens (and sometimes many dozens) of conversations.  Part of the natural art of conversation is our ability to speak and listen to a single individual, even when there is background noise such as music playing or other conversations in progress.  We instinctively focus our attention on the […]

SoC Developers, You Have Our Full Support

You might have seen our recent announcement regarding the fact that we’re opening an eFPGA support center in Taiwan. The reason this announcement is so significant is that it demonstrates the depth of our commitment to eFPGA technology for SoC developers. We’ve already spoken at length about the benefits of embedding FPGA logic in SoCs, […]

The “Everywhere” FPGA

We just announced our new ArcticPro™ eFPGA initiative.  While the “e” stands for “embedded”, it could just as easily stand for “everywhere”, as this program makes our latest FPGA technology available as an IP block to other companies designing SoC devices for the GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ 22FDX process, as well as their 65nm and 40nm process nodes.  […]

Battery-Powered Voice Processing for IoT Applications

Smartphones with integrated sensors have really helped drive down the cost and power consumption of sensor-based solutions. Lower cost and lower power sensor-based solutions have, in turn, enabled the “Internet of Things” (IoT) market to become established. However, IoT applications are different than smartphone applications in many ways. One of the most important is how […]
