Q&A: Embedded FPGA Facilitates Reconfigurable SoC/MCU RTL Blocks (.PDF Download)

Oct. 14, 2016

Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) have provided developers with flexibility. Recently, FPGAs have incorporated system-on-chip (SoC) microprocessors such 64-bit, ARM Cortex-A57 cores. This simplifies programming and integration, but there are other alternatives as well, such as Flex Logix’s embedded FPGAs that make it possible to integrate an FPGA within an ASIC...
