The innovations in semiconductor processing technologies, and increasing electronics manufacturing efficiencies have facilitated FPGA vendors, to offer their programmable devices at affordable unit costs, as compared to other traditional approaches, such as application specific integrated circuit (ASICs). Moreover, the other advantages associated with field-programmable gate array, such as higher performance gain in software application, large parallel data processing capacity, and ability to process real time data efficiently, are driving the demand of the field-programmable gate array market.
One of the major drivers of the field-programmable gate array from supplier perspective is the extremely short time to market. The time required for hardware prototype design of FPGA has shortened in the past few years, since the modern hardware development process is largely based on the IP core design. The end of time-taking processes, such as start-up and debugging, is decreasing the overall development period of the FPGA. Stiff rise in the non-recurring engineering of ASIC has increased the ASIC unit costs over the years. The designing of standard cell ASIC is estimated up to, millions of dollars. Increase in the mask costs raises the effective unit cost, of the ASIC solutions over the years. As a result, FPGA are becoming the popular alternatives for ASIC in many application.
