eFPGA soft IP announces collaboration with Codasip and Andes Technology
At DAC 2022 (11 to 14 July 2022 at the Moscone Center, San Francisco, California, USA), eFPGA supplier, Menta announces a development with Codasip which extends RISC-V embedded processors and a Custom Extension feature, in partnership with Andes Technology, which is implemented on its eFPGA for RISC-V cores.
The eFPGA company offers design-adaptive standard cells-based architecture and tool set provides design customisation, testability and fastest time-to-volume for SoC design targeting any production node at any foundry, claimed the company.
The eFPGA IP prototype extends the capabilities of RISC-V embedded processor was presented at DAC. The company also presented the eFPGA Soft IP, a product changing how eFPGAs are designed to meet customer requirements on any standard cell technology.
Menta’s eFPGA Soft IP technology offers SoCs, ASICs and sensors for designers to update chips in the field for applications such as security / cryptography, artificial intelligence, motor control and telecommunications. Menta’s eFPGA are used by companies serving the defence, space, IoT, industrial, 5G and automotive markets.
Menta eFPGA IP is offered both as a hard IP (GDSII) and as a soft IP (RTL). It has been taped-out on eight technology nodes at four different foundries and is in mass production.
In addition to Codasip and Andes Technology, Menta’s partners ecosystem includes Everspin Technologies, Secure-IC, CHX, Thales Alenia Space and Trusted Semiconductor Solutions.
Menta SAS is based in Sophia-Antipolis, France. It is a private semiconductor IP provider offering an accelerator for edge computing in the form of embedded FPGA (eFPGA) IPs.
Menta SAS is used by ASIC and SoC designers who need fast, right-first time design and fast time to volume.
