Automated FPGA to ASIC Conversion with Zero NRE Download 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, Freescale is giving away 5 RIoTboards, worth 74 dollars each, for EETimes Europe's readers to win.

 

Designed to run Android operating systems efficiently or to run under Linux, the board is based on the Freescale i.MX 6Solo processor; using the ARM Cortex-A9 architecture.

The RIoTboard platform also includes a rich set of peripherals including a 10M/100M/Gb Ethernet port, 1 USB 2.0 OTG High Speed and 4 USB 2.0 High Speed 2.0 Hosts, LVDS, HDMI and Parallel RGB interfaces, micro TF and SD card interfaces, analog headphone/microphone jacks, camera interface, serial ports, JTAG and boot configuration interfaces. This together with a low power consumption makes it fit for the design of IoT data hubs.
