An embedded field-programmable gate array (FPGA) is an IP block that allows a complete FPGA to be incorporated in a system-on-chip (SoC) or any kind of integrated circuit. Embedded FPGAs are new, but the traditional idea of how chips turn into IP blocks has become old: RAM, SERDES, PLL, and processors are all routine IP blocks that used to be standalone chips. Now, FPGA is an IP block, too.
Users of embedded FPGA are NOT users of FPGA chips. Most FPGA chips are employed in lower-volum
