IP Cores Add Reconfigurable Logic To ASIC/ASSP Designs

The SRAM-based VariCore embedded programmable gate array (EPGA) IP core is now available on the 0.18-µm process from Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing. These cores are used in ASIC and ASSP SoC devices to help speed products to market and increase the life of those products once in the market, the company says. VariCore IP is a complete front-to-back-end embedded Òsoft hardwareÓ reprogrammable core family. A developerÕs kit includes a test chip, circuit board, LCD, interface hardware, test design and documentation. The kit interfaces directly with the VariCore Compiler EPGA place-and-route design and SoC interface tool. Pricing for cores varies and follows a sliding scale model of license plus royalties.
