Adding NoCs To FPGA SoCs

FPGAs and ASICs are two different types of chips used for programming. FPGA chip can provide the necessary flexibility but only ASIC chip can provide higher performance requirements. FPGA SoCs offer a solution which provides some performance and low power benefits of an ASIC and flexibility of a FPGA. FPGA SOC is a hybrid device [...]

Embedded FPGAs start to take hold in SoC

Now-a-days, embedded FPGAs started to find market with telecommunications. In the beginning, market kept on changing because users were looking beyond cost to the need to support fast-moving standards. Several attempts were done to kickstart the technology, but it ran to issues of cost and density. Many SoC designers applied many ways to keep flexibility [...]
