Intel® eASIC™ Devices

Intel® eASIC™ devices are structured ASICs, an intermediary technology between FPGAs and standard-cell ASICs that provide lower unit-cost and lower power compared to FPGAs and faster time-to-market and lower non-recurring engineering cost compared to standard-cell ASICs. Intel® eASIC™ devices provide fast time-to-deployment of logic, DSP, or IO dominated custom devices. The current generation of products feature up to 52 million equivalent ASIC gates, 124 MB of true dual port memory, and transceiver data rates of up to 28 Gbps.

Intel® easicopy™ Devices

Provides a seamless and low risk migration path from Intel® eASIC™ N2X, Intel® eASIC™ N3X or Intel® eASIC™ N3XS devices to a lower unit cost cell-based ASIC.

Benefits

Lower Power and Unit Cost

Provides unit-cost and power reductions compared to FPGA by replacing SRAM configuration logic with patented single-via customization technology and disconnecting power from unused device structures.

Time Advantage

Faster time to market and turnaround time than traditional ASICs due to simplified design flow, customization of only a few mask layers, and when feasible no PCB change from base FPGA designs.

High Performance

The structured ASIC combines logic, memory, DSP, high speed memory interfaces, and high-speed transceivers (up to 28 Gbps) for high performance data plane or control plane applications.

Broad IP Support

A wealth of fully verified eASIC-ready IP cores from Intel and third party alliance partners.

Simplified Design Flow

Intel® eASIC™ device eTools offer a framework for design conversion and validation using a combination of internally developed and industry standard third party tools.

Market Applicability

Intel® eASIC™ devices offer custom low power solutions for a broad range of data intensive and IO intensive applications in end markets such as 5G wireless, military, data center acceleration, compute, storage, machine learning inference, IoT, machine vision, and video applications.
