Now that three vendors are chasing the embedded FPGA market, potential customers will have a wider choice, which has to be a good thing.
I just read that QuickLogic recently announced it is joining Achronix and a start-up called Flex Logix in offering to license FPGA fabric for embedding into SoCs.
At first glance, combining FPGA fabric with an SoC looks like a marriage made in heaven. The end-product will have the benefit of highly optimized functions built into the SoC portion coupled with the ability to be customized using the FPGA. In addition, the combined solution should have a higher performance at reduced power and lower cost than using two discrete devices. What could possibly go wrong?
