Development suite creates customizable programmable logic architectures
May 25, 2010 // Julien Happich
Menta SAS, provider of embedded programmable logic IP, unveiled eFPGA Creator as the first complete development tool suite that allows designers to create customizable programmable logic architectures. By providing full control over the parameters of the embedded-FPGA structure, eFPGA Creator gives users the ability to define, build, analyze and validate the target capacity, performance, interconnect density and programming method.
As part of a complete foundry-independent methodology, eFPGA Creator enables embedded-FPGA configurability for any SoC (System on Chip), on any process technology. It targets telecommunications, automotive, space and defence applications.
The eFPGA Creator suite accelerates the development of flexible SoCs with Menta's customizable embedded-FPGA IP products. The development suite automatically creates the eFPGA Core IP best suited for the end application.
Its graphical user interface assists the designer through the definition of the tile, and core parameters such as capacity, size, aspect ratio and process constraints. The Generator tool automatically builds, a fully hierarchical and optimized structure, based on fully configured compact tiles.
This optimized eFPGA Core IP can be customized to integrate specific hardware accelerators and functions, and designers can select the configuration storage mechanism based on the process and library availability (for example, SRAM, NVRAM or antifuse).
The Analyzer tool helps designers fine tune the best architecture parameters (LUT size, routing needs, I/Os...) for the target application.
