Data center managers want their facilities to be more reconfigurable and programmable, as opposed to the old PC era of hardware that must be replaced to keep up with changing standards and protocols. Until now, reconfigurability didn’t exist, and a change in protocol could easily require a data center operator to replace every chip in the facility. With the emergence of embedded FPGA (eFPGA) technology, these issues are going away. This technology not only allows reconfigurability of chips after they’ve been installed in a data center, but it can also accelerate processor performance. This article explores how eFPGAs can enhance an ASIC’s or SoC’s performance and capabilities.
