“It’s a major leap from 40nm Trion T20 FPGA to 10nm Quantum eFPGA. We are achieving PDK to GDS with the advantage of the silicon process-agnostic nature of our Quantum architecture and the tremendous support by the Samsung Memory Business Unit,” said Sammy Cheung, co-founder, CEO, and president of Efinix. “Combining Quantum Power-Performance-Area advantage with Samsung’s leading-edge silicon manufacturing technology, the partnership will offer the most advanced FPGA silicon solutions for markets like AI, Data Centres and Communication Infrastructure.”
“We are glad to see Efinix has made great progress since our initial investment in the company in 2017,” said a representative of Samsung Venture Investment Corporation. “We envision Efinix’s FPGA technology embedded inside many other Samsung solutions in the future.”
“Efinix has created the most competitive FPGA technology in the Power-Performance-Area by combining Quantum eFPGA and the Samsung 10nm FinFET process,” explained Bill Hata,a former senior vice president of Worldwide Operations and Engineering at Altera, which is now part of Intel.
According to Hata, who has more than 30 years of semiconductor industry experience and serves on Efinix’s Advisory Board. “Developing FPGA products on a FinFET process is extremely difficult and challenging. Efinix has accomplished this feat in a short time demonstrating impressive engineering and program management.”
