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, Altium Ltd is offering EETimes Europe's readers the chance to win one TASKING VX-Toolset for ARM Cortex-M Premium Edition, normally licensed for 2.395 Euros, for ultra-rapid prototyping and code development around ARM Cortex-M based microcontrollers.

The VX-toolset for ARM is the first TASKING compiler suite to receive the Software Platform technology, which is seamlessly integrated into the toolset's Eclipse based IDE. The complete offering also includes a C/C++ compiler, simulator and hardware debugger, and a wide collection of frequently used middleware components, such as TCP/IP, USB, CAN, web server, graphical user-interface, and an RTOS. At the cost of a traditional development toolset the developer gets everything needed to build an application much faster than is possible with other compiler suites and additional third party middleware components.
