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, Oscium is giving away three of its iMSO-204L dual analogue iOS oscilloscopes, worth USD400 each. Designed with native Lightning compatibility, the iMSO-204L transforms the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch into an ultra-portable, two-channel oscilloscope.
Since Apple changed its connector, Oscium has been working to bring native compatibility to its customers. The third generation of handheld engineering tools from Oscium, the iMSO-204L is the solution to the connector change, featuring two analogue and four digital channels, capable of 50 MSPS at a 5MHz bandwidth, and with a resolution varying from 200ns/div to 10s/div.MORE INFO AND LAST MONTH' WINNERS...
