QuickLogic Introduces eFPGA (Embedded FPGA)

Over the years, several companies have dipped their corporate toes in the water with regard to embedding FPGA fabric in SoCs -- one notable case was IBM embedding FPGA fabric from Xilinx -- but these solutions never really managed to gain traction. All this may be about to change with today's announcement from QuickLogic that it will selectively license its proprietary ultra-low power programmable logic technology under the trade name ArcticPro eFPGA (embedded FPGA). A 30-year programmable logic veteran, QuickLogic has enjoyed an interesting history. It started life as a traditional FPGA company, but subsequently transitioned to offering CSSPs (customer-specific standard products) based on a suite of PSBs (proven system blocks) that address connectivity, performance, and user experience challenges in the Storage, Display, and I/O subsystems of mobile and industrial devices...
