QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), a developer of ultra-low power multi-core voice-enabled SoCs, embedded FPGA IP, and Endpoint AI solutions, today announced that it has signed an agreement with Taiwanese distributor MA Technology to make its embedded FPGA (eFPGA) IP available in Taiwan. The distribution agreement enables MA Technology to expand its many IP offerings with the addition of eFPGA IP, giving SoC developers an unprecedented level of post-production design flexibility.
MA Technology is a premier provider of a broad range of IP in Taiwan. Their offerings include IP from companies such as eTopus and Mobiveil that are complementary to the eFPGA IP provided by QuickLogic. The company’s targeted applications are storage, communications, networking, green energy, consumer electronics, and industrial computers, all of which are applications that can be well-served with eFPGA technology.
Adding eFPGA blocks to SoCs, along with the other IP offered by MA Technology, enables SoC design teams to make post-manufacturing changes to their devices. Having this level of flexibility gives them the ability to address new competitive threats, add new features as markets evolve, incorporate rapidly changing design standards, and serve market and product adjacencies, all without having to spend the time and money needed to create a new device.
