SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 6, 2022 -- QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), a developer of ultra-low power multi-core voice-enabled SoCs, embedded FPGA IP, and Endpoint AI solutions, today announced that it has signed an embedded FPGA (eFPGA) IP agreement with Yu-Hsin Layout Technology, based in Zhubei City, Taiwan. This agreement allows Yu-Hsin to utilize QuickLogic's eFPGA IP technology to add eFPGA integration to their wide array of design services.
Integrating QuickLogic's eFPGA IP into the devices designed by Yu-Hsin enables their customers to gain many critical post-manufacturing flexibility benefits including the ability to address competitive threats, pursue market adjacencies, adapt to new and emerging standards, and add new features. Integrating eFPGA IP can extend the lifecycle of a device by allowing it to be changed after it has been designed and manufactured, which has the potential to dramatically increase its revenue and profitability.
Yu-Hsin provides full custom IC layout services including analog and digital functionality, IO and memory layout, placement and routing, command and technology file support, and ESD and latch-up checking. Integrated functionality includes analog, RF/mm wave, PLL, DDR memory, SerDes, standard cell, power management, and LDO across a wide range of process nodes down to 5nm. Yu-Hsin has strong existing relationships with companies such as TSMC, Samsung, Nvidia, VIS, MediaTek, Novatek, Himax, Raydium, FocalTech, Richtek, Ilitek, and the Industrial Technology Research Institute for applications ranging from consumer electronics to IoT.
The agreement is effective immediately and QuickLogic's eFPGA IP technology is available now, enabling Yu-Hsin to quickly and easily target eFPGA IP to nearly any foundry and process node for fast and efficient SoC integration.
