eASIC is a fabless semiconductor company offering breakthrough Structured ASIC
devices aimed at dramatically reducing the overall fabrication cost and time of customized semiconductor chips.
Altera's Quartus II design software is a technologically advanced development software for FPGA, CPLD, and structured ASIC
(Nasdaq:LAVA), a provider of semiconductor design software, has announced that STMicroelectronics (NYSE:STM) has successfully implemented a via-programmable embedded structured ASIC
platform using Magma's Blast Create(TM) SA.
Engineers can simplify the job of SOC design and avoid purchasing and learning some of the SOC EDA toolkit (tools for circuit, mask, and physical designers) by using a structured ASIC
The expanded EasyPath product line now supports the Xilinx Spartan-3 and Virtex-4 Platform FPGAs, starting at just $12.95 for 30,000 logic cells and half the price of comparable Structured ASIC
The resulting Mainstream IV8102 device--said to be the world's first ASIC capable of processing 4SIF/DI (704 X 480 pixels) resolution MPEG4 video at 30 frames per second entirely on-chip--was created using intellectual property developed in-house at IndigoVision, and implemented on a 0.25[micro] Structured ASIC
technologies such as NEC Electronics' Instant Silicon Solution Platform[TM] (ISSP[TM]) feature lower NRE costs and a shorter design and fabrication cycle than a cell-based device through preconfiguration of some of the logic, memory and I/O embedded in the device.
