Speedcore's combined static and dynamic power consumption is less than half that of high-performance standalone FPGAs.
Speedcore interfaces are massively parallel, direct connections with latency as low as 2 ns, whereas the latency performance for standalone FPGAs is typically 30ns to 100ns and is the performance bottleneck.
Speedcore eliminates the standalone FPGA costs and reduces system production costs for the following items:
Smaller PCB size
Reduced PCB layer count
Eliminate FPGA supporting components
Improved system reliability
Speedcore is based on the same technology used in Speedster22i FPGAs. ACE design tools support Speedster and Speedcore products. Customers can use ACE today to benchmark Speedcore performance, power and area utilization.
