Intel to Acquire A Top Structured ASICs Provider
Intel Corporation (INTC) seeks to expand the boundaries of technology to provide the most amazing experience possible while designing, manufacturing, and selling integrated digital technology globally.
Intel has made plans to expand its programmable solutions portfolio by including structure ASICs by acquiring eASIC, a top structured ASICs provider. ASICs are well-suited for high-performance and power-constrained applications. Adding eASIC to Intel’s line-up will allow the company to help meet the diverse needs of customers from time-to-market, features, performance, cost, power, and product life cycles.
The acquirement will join together the best-in-class technologies of both companies and will offer customers more choices, faster time-to-market, and lower development costs. Providing a structure ASICs offering will allow Intel to better address the high-performance and power-constrained applications that many of its customers are challenged by in market segments such as 4G and 5G wireless, networking, and loT. Low-cost, automated conversion process from FPGA’s to structured ASICs can also be provided.d
In the long run, the company sees an opportunity to be able to orchestrate a new class of programmable chips that will take advantage of Intel’s Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge or EMIB technology and combine Intel FPGA with structured ASICs in a system package solution.
The acquisition is expected to be completed by quarter three 2018.
