QuickLogic Corporation is licensing its proprietary ultra-low power ArcticPro eFPGA programmable logic technology. Embedding ArcticPro ultra-low power eFPGA technology is an ideal solution that allows SoCs and ASICs to be customized post-production without expensive and time-consuming redesign. The eFPGA approach also allows developers to create SoC and ASIC platforms that can easily be tailored to serve multiple target applications and increase revenue by providing hardware programmability to their end customers.
QuickLogic was an early innovator of FPGA technology and has shipped over 40 million FPGA devices since it was founded in 1988. The company has most recently leveraged this experience by developing ultra-low-power sensor processing solutions that include eFPGA IP and is now offering that IP to semiconductor companies and OEMs.
"We believe our eFPGA IP enables semiconductor companies and OEMs to offer unique differentiation and the ability to better leverage the rising fixed costs associated with the development of SoC and ASIC devices. This licensing initiative is a potentially highly disruptive business model for both QuickLogic and the semiconductor industry in general," said Brian Faith, president and CEO of QuickLogic Corporation. "With our deep experience in developing FPGA devices and their associated tool suites, including our recently released Aurora software development tools, we are uniquely positioned to support new eFPGA design efforts. Adding this new strategic support center provides local support for our Asian customers and demonstrates our firm commitment to establishing our ArcticPro eFPGA as the de facto standard for embedded FPGA technology."

About Aurora eFPGA Development Tool
The Aurora eFPGA development tool supports complete design implementation from RTL through place and route. The place and route tools work in conjunction with the Borealis eFPGA IP compiler, allowing SoC developers to determine the amount of eFPGA resources needed to support their design (including logic cell count, clock network requirements and routing utilization). The compiler also provides the estimated eFPGA die area associated with those resources.
