ASIC/FPGA Conversion

FPGA provide a flexible solution for prototyping digital ICs, hence developing system quickly and meeting critical market demands. But when it's time to go to production, only a lower cost ASIC solution can get a competitive priced product to your marketplace. Conventional ASIC development offers lower production costs, but longer development spans and higher development costs. At SiliconPro we offer the perfect solution by converting expensive FPGAs to a low cost gate array solution. Gate arrays (or metal programmed ASICs), offers lower development costs compared to conventional ASICs and gets you to market faster where you can cash in on your total cost savings right away. A simple break-even analysis shows this point at approximately 5000 units, depending on the size and package of the FPGA, as illustrated in the graph.
