Automated FPGA to ASIC Conversion with Zero NRE
February 09, 2011 // Gal Gilat, KaiSemi Ltd. // 0 commentsDownload White Paper 326Ko
FPGA design suits a fast time-to-market product, while its chip cost is high. ASIC design or traditional FPGA to ASIC design involve high resources cost, while the chip cost is low. This paper presents a smooth automated conversion from FPGA to ASIC which is seamless to customer resources, while being dedicated to cost optimization. FPGA cost overheads are tackled by addressing three aspects: redundant die area, pricing of various fab process and production material.The paper analyzes the risks, complexity, lead-times and costs involved with FPGA and FPGA-to-ASIC conversion options.

This month, Novelda is giving away two full XeThru Inspiration kits worth 1499 US Dollars each, for EETimes Europe's readers to experiment first hand with its XeThru technology.Based on the use of radio waves, rather than infrared, ultrasound or light, the company's X2M1000 Inspiration modules can detect presence just from the chest movement while breathing, and measure both the rate and depth of breathing, allowing breathing patterns to be tracked in real-time for a plethora of presence and health-care monitoring applications.
