QuickLogic and Andes Technology partner for eFPGA joint promotion

1 min read

QuickLogic, a developer of ultra-low power multi-core voice-enabled SoCs, embedded FPGA IP, and Endpoint AI solutions, is partnering with Andes Technology in an eFPGA joint promotion.

The move is intended to enable Andes' customers to integrate QuickLogic's eFPGA technology with their RISC-V processor-based subsystems to give their SoC customers a wide range of benefits in terms of much greater post-manufacturing flexibility.

Andes Technology is a supplier of RISC-V processor intellectual property with worldwide sales and support channels. As a founding and premier member of RISC-V International, it has been a leading developer of RISC-V-based high-performance and low-power 32-bit and 64-bit processors for SoC platforms serving a wide range of embedded system applications.

Typical end applications for their customer base include 5G communications, IoT, wearables, advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), artificial intelligence (AI), augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR), data centre accelerators, high-speed networking, and enterprise storage.

By adding QuickLogic's eFPGA technology to the RISC-V-based SoCs used in those applications it will possible to give developers the ability to make post-manufacturing changes to their designs to add support for new standards, face emerging competitive threats, or address adjacent market opportunities. This high degree of flexibility can extend the lifecycle of an SoC and dramatically improve its profitability.

QuickLogic's eFPGA IP technology is available now, enabling companies such as Andes customers to target eFPGA IP quickly and easily to nearly any foundry and process node for fast and efficient SoC integration.
