All chip designers know that the deadline to “freeze RTL” comes all too soon. Now you don’t have to freeze the critical part of your RTL that needs to continue to change to keep up with evolving standards and changing customer requirements. Thanks to a handful of embedded FPGA companies, including Flex Logix who have introduced proven embedded FPGA platforms, chip designers can keep some of the chip flexible, enabling RTL to be updated any time, even in the customers’ systems.
In this article, we’ll talk about some of the key advantages to embedded FPGA, discuss how chip designers can use it, and also correct some of the most common misconceptions about what embedded FPGA is and isn’t.
