Autonomous Vehicle Trends and Technology Evolution

Bob Siller,Director, Product Marketing

The value of FPGAs in automotive design has long been established as the technology has been used in over 200 million vehicles over the last 15 years. However, looking beyond the FPGA, it is clear that, for the needs of ADAS today, the eFPGA reigns supreme.

Back to Basics: A Layman’s Introduction to the eFPGA

Alok Sanghavi,Sr. Marketing Manager

To answer the question of what an embedded field programmable gate array (eFPGA) is, we first have to answer the question of what is an FPGA.

To oversimplify. an FPGA is a chip that is able to rewire its internal workings in the field whenever instructed, and then operate at hardware (as opposed to software) speeds until such time as it is rewired again. This capability is known as field programmability.

Benefits of Using FPGA and eFPGA IP in your Design

Bob Siller,Director, Product Marketing

While FPGAs have been around for over 30 years, eFPGA IP is a relatively new technology that is now finding its way into high-volume applications. Modern eFPGA IP support the same 7nm process technology as high-performance standalone FPGAs.

Our existing customers ask us some pretty big questions: “How can this technology implement a step-change in my specific process? How can Speedcore IP be integrated in my SoC? How can you increase the performance of my ASIC?” We revel in answering such questions.

However, when we first meet with a company interested in our embedded FPGA (eFPGA) IP, often the question is very simply, “At the most basic level, what can it do for me?” This question may be the most important one we’ll ever answer for them.

Speedcore FCU

Configuring your Speedcore eFPGA, Part 1: Configuration Interfaces

Volkan Oktem,Sr. Director of Application

Each instance of an Achronix Speedcore eFPGA in your ASIC or SoC design must be configured after the system powers up because Speedcore eFPGAs employ nonvolatile SRAM technology to store the eFPGA’s configuration bits. Each Speedcore instance contains its own FPGA configuration unit (FCU) that initializes, configures, and manages the Speedcore eFPGA’s core logic array. For example, if you instantiate three Speedcore eFPGAs in your ASIC/SoC design, there will be three FCUs on the chip.
