Our dream is to have eFPGA at the heart of a SoC, giving designer flexibility of post modification which they need but with ASIC like performances.
Key Benefits of eFPGA:
- Soft or Hard Macro IP core
- Technology independent
- Easy integration in SoC
- Compact eFPGA architecture provides High logic density with low power
- Highly customizable for target applications/Domain-specific
Soft or Hard Macro IP core
The soft IP core gives the advantages of having standard RTL flow with state of the art design tools. It allows designers to make modification according to their needs very easily. For example, the shape of IP core, voltage, I/O connectivity etc.
The Hard Macro version of the soft IP core is ideal for drop-in solution and rapid time to market.
The soft IP provides freedom to target any desired technology. Designers can switch to new technology without redesigning IP.
Easy integration in SoC
Integration of eFPGA IP is very simple. The designer can choose integration way of their choice. Menta proposes three examples of integration.
Compact eFPGA architecture
Our solution provides SoC designer added flexibility which they want from FPGA without increasing the manufacturing cost too much (because of area overhead of embedded FPGA) which usually forces them to switch to less efficient external FPGA solution.
Our technology allows SoC designers to have an FPGA which is highly targeted towards their application. This is achieved by having special hard macros. The type and amount of these special macros is obtained by analysis of target application.
In general case these macros can be components like multipliers and memory. In special cases they can be dedicated blocks which can not be found in classical FPGAs where even dedicated blocks are chosen for target range of applications.
This exclusive feature of our eFPGA will bring the near ASIC like performance while still having design flexibility in their application domain.
