RISING COST of ASIC DESIGN

Many factors were making it extremely difficult and expensive to design and manufacture traditional Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs). This leads to the significant use of programmable solutions of different forms that are increasingly referred to as programmable platforms. Design tools are finding it hard to hold the complexity and electrical design challenges faced through each new generation of technology. The ultimate result would be less increase of design productivity even though there is an increase in expensive design tools. The rising manufacturing costs of ASIC means, high non-recurring design and manufacturing cost that is considered as either larger break even volumes at fixed per-unit prices, or prohibitive per-unit prices at fixed volumes. The development and design of an ASIC, along with ASIC layout is a costly process. There are several levels of customization, which include Gate Array, Full Custom Design, Standard Cell, and Field Programmable Logic to reduce the design costs. These categories of levels help in reducing costs for designs, where there is no requirement of large levels of customization of the ASIC.

SRAM based FPGAs is One of the Fastest Growing Amongst the Other Architectures

SRAM based FPGAs (static random access memory based field programmable gate arrays) are configured with data logical cells in static memory because SRAM are volatile without power source. The rise in applications of SRAM FPGAs in harsh radiation environments has increased recently. Programmable devices require reduction techniques for ensuring targeting memory with user logic and embedded RAM blocks. The storage of SRAM help in configuring data with internal volatile memory cells with distribution being done throughout the device. Volatility is the major drawback of SRAM based FPGA because when there is no power availability then the entire programming is lost. Overcoming of these volatilities require external storage with application where there is more power availability as this helps in taking inputs from external storage devices. There is a possibility that using volatility of data as a security feature, helping the SRAM based FPGA to erase the entire program if it is tampered.

Telecommunications contributes a major market share

Substantially to most of the countries, which include wired and wireless communications; 4G LTE services are adopted across the globe, mostly in North America and the Asia Pacific. Additionally, the internet users have increased even in the rural areas. These improvements have raised the number of network operators and mobile network infrastructure providers. These network operators need more bandwidth and higher speed of data or download speed to fulfill the needs of customers.

Asia-Pacific Region Dominated the Market over Other Regions

The growing markets in the APAC region are: Japan, India, China, and others. These are the hubs for industries that are integral to the FPGA market, such as automotive and consumer electronics. In 2017, Japan was among the most influential players in not just Asia-Pacific, but the global FPGA market.

Key Developments in the Market

  • September 2017 - Lattice Semiconductor Corporation announced the termination of the acquisition by Canyon Bridge Capital Partners, LLC (“Canyon Bridge”) of Lattice Semiconductor following an order from the President of the United States. The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) referred the transaction with Canyon Bridge to the U.S. President for a decision, having been unable to come to an agreement with the parties on mitigation measures. After consideration, the President prohibited the proposed transaction on the recommendation of CFIUS in an executive order dated September 13, 2017. The transaction with Canyon Bridge was in the best interests of our shareholders, our customers, our employees and the United States. We also believe our CFIUS mitigation proposal was the single most comprehensive mitigation proposal ever proposed for a foreign transaction in the semiconductor industry and would have maximized United States national security protection while still enabling Lattice to accept Canyon Bridge’s investment and double American jobs.
  • January 2017 - SP Devices, an e2v company, has launched the ADQ7, the first digitizer to offer an unrivalled combination of 14-bits vertical resolution and a sampling rate of up to 10 GS/s. Following the success of SP Devices’ ADQ14 digitizer, the ADQ7 has been optimized to provide a higher sampling rate, larger Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), increased memory and data transfer rate and a higher bandwidth analog front-end. The ADQ7’s unique combination of high bandwidth and high dynamic range makes it ideal for demanding applications, such as LIght Detection And Ranging (LIDAR), radar, mass spectrometry, radio frequency sampling, and recording and Automated Test Equipment (ATE).
The major players include - ACHRONIX SEMICONDUCTOR CORP., ALTERA CORPORATION, E2V TECHNOLOGIES, ATMEL CORPORATION, LATTICE SEMICONDUCTOR CORPORATION, MICROSEMI CORPORATION, TABULA INC, and XILINX INC., amongst others.
