SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- QuickLogic
Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), a developer of ultra-low power
multi-core voice-enabled SoCs, embedded FPGA IP, and Endpoint AI
solutions, today announced that it has partnered with SiFive, Inc.
to add QuickLogic's embedded FPGA (eFPGA) technology to its
DesignShare program of IP for SoC designs. SiFive is the leading
provider of RISC-V core IP, development tools and silicon
solutions. This license makes it easy for SoC developers to add
voice and AI subsystems, along with post-manufacturing design
flexibility, to their SoCs via SiFive's DesignShare program.
The SiFive DesignShare IP program offers a streamlined process
for companies seeking to partner with leading vendors to provide
pre-integrated premium Silicon IP for bringing new SoCs to market.
As part of SiFive's business model to license IP when ready for
mass production, the flexibility and choice of the DesignShare IP
program reduces the complexities of contract negotiation and
licensing agreements to enable faster time to market through
simpler prototyping, no legal red tape, and no upfront payment.
"The demand for voice and AI-based IoT solutions is growing,"
said Mohit Gupta, vice president of
SoC IP solutions at SiFive. "Because this is a quickly-evolving
market, designers also need flexibility in their SoC designs, often
with further customization taking place post-production. Adding
QuickLogic's eFPGA IP to our DesignShare ecosystem offers our
customers a solution that is not only flexible but low-cost,
ultra-low power and very high-performance."
"SiFive's DesignShare program provides an extensive IP offering
for developers of RISC-V based SoCs, and now those same developers
can easily add our eFPGA technology to their designs," said
Brian Faith, president and CEO of
QuickLogic Corporation. "This relationship with SiFive gives IoT
and other SoC designers easy access to the flexibility and low
power benefits associated with eFPGA technology."
SiFive's DesignShare program, including QuickLogic's eFGPA IP,
is available now. Visit www.sifive.com/designshare for more
