Ultra-low Power Embedded FPGA Technology Adds Post-Manufacturing Flexibility
QuickLogic Corporation, a developer of ultra-low power multi-core voice-enabled SoCs, embedded FPGA IP, and Endpoint AI solutions, today announced that its ArcticPro™ embedded FPGA (eFPGA) has been selected by Nations Technologies in Shenzhen, China for its next-generation low power IoT System-on-Chip (SoC). Nations Technologies selected QuickLogic’s ArcticPro eFPGA technology due to its ease of implementation, ultra-low power consumption and to maximize the addressable market for its new SoC design.
The inherent flexibility of ArcticPro eFPGA enables unique post-manufacturing design flexibility that significantly expands the applications and use cases for SoCs. ArcticPro eFPGA also provides Nations Technologies with a degree of “future proofing” by making it possible for the SoC to support new functions as the IoT market and customer requirements evolves. With these benefits, Nations Technologies can improve the leverage it gets from its R&D investments.
