Transcript

  • 1. Impact of New Super Size FPGAs IP-SoC December 2011 Bill Finch – Senior VP, CAST, Inc.
  • 2. About CAST Successful IP provider/developer/partner Eighteen years experience delivering IP Original member of both Altera and Xilinx partner programs Over 1,000 core sales to FPGA users Unique market approach We only do IP Independent of semiconductor technologies and EDA tools Broad range of IP: 100 cores plus platform IP Featuring Processors and Controllers, Image & Video Compression, and the memory, interfaces, and other IP to build complete systems around them2 CAST Intro & Overview
  • 3. New Devices = New Opportunities Enabling more compact and efficient designs removes blocking issues in many markets Many advanced features now integral to the silicon Lower power per function Changing the economics for low to mid volume customers Advanced ASIC designs are hugely expensive Cost of chips vs. cost of boards3 CAST Intro & Overview
  • 4. New Devices = New Challenges SoC designs bring a need to better define complete architectures up front Need to integrate many functions into one design More software / hardware interaction More IP blocks / functions will be purchased Different process than buying chips IP Suppliers will need to be trusted partners Pre-sale support will be key to IP selection Choosing the right supplier will be as important as IP details4 CAST Intro & Overview
