SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Nov. 15, 2018 -- QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), a developer of ultra-low power multi-core voice enabled SoCs, embedded FPGA (eFPGA) IP, display bridge and programmable logic solutions, today announced that its ultra-low power ArcticPro™ eFPGA technology is now available on the popular TSMC 40nm process node. The embedded IP is fully supported by a complete development environment, which is also immediately available, and enables designers of IoT endpoint, AI, automotive and security applications to add hardware acceleration capabilities and post-manufacturing design flexibility to their SoC platform devices.
TSMC was the first foundry to mass produce products for multiple customers on a 40nm process when it was introduced, and it has since become a standard for SoC designs addressing a wide range of applications due to its attractive combination of performance, low power consumption, and cost, making it an excellent fit for the ultra-low power consumption eFPGA technology from QuickLogic.
SoC designs targeting IoT endpoint, AI, security and automotive applications can exploit the flexibility inherent in eFPGA technology by using it to address fragmented markets, new or emerging standards, market adjacencies or new competitive threats. SoC developers can be comfortable integrating eFPGA technology knowing that QuickLogic has decades of experience with FPGA architectures, technology, software and IP, and has worked successfully with TSMC for many years.
"TSMC's 40nm process is an excellent choice for integrating eFPGA technology, and is widely used in SoCs that require very low standby power and non-volatile flash memory," said Mao Wang, product marketing director at QuickLogic Corporation. "The popularity of that process node means that many more SoC designers can now exploit the many advantages of embedding programmable logic into their platforms."
QuickLogic's ArcticPro eFPGA technology on TSMC's 40nm process, and its associated software design suite, is available now for evaluation. For more information, please visit www.quicklogic.com/technologies/efpga-ip/arcticpro-efpga/
