FPGA vendor QuickLogic Corp. has partnered with YorChip Inc. (San Ramon, Calif.) to create UCIe-compatible FPGA chiplets.

UCIe stands for Universal Chiplet Interconnect Express. It is an open specification for a die-to-die interconnect and serial bus between chiplets and the companies claim that by making FPGA chiplets to this standard it will reduce integration of the technology for IoT and AI/ML applications.

Putting QuickLogic’s embedable FPGA fabric IP on a chiplet will allow customers to connect any UCIe-compatible third-party chiplet, such as a CPU or AI/ML processor to create a customizable system in package.

The ecosystem is also suitable for interoperability testing and joint promotion. Customers who wish to go full SoC will still be able to license QuickLogic’s eFPGA and YorChip’s UCIe IP and use chiplets to prototype and do early market production.

“Together, we’re delivering a ground-breaking line up of low-power, cost-effective FPGA chiplets that will revolutionize the way designers design and build systems,” said Kash Johal, founder at YorChip, in a statement issued by QuickLogic.

The UCIe standard is supported by AMD, Arm, Google Cloud, Intel Corporation, Meta, Microsoft, Qualcomm Incorporated, Samsung, and TSMC.

The first FPGA chiplets from the QuickLogic and YorChip partnership are expected to be available in early 2025. The chiplets will range in size from 40K look up tables (LUTs) to over 1 million LUTs, making them suitable for a wide range of applications.

YorChip was founded in 2023 to apply UCIe compatible die-to-die technology to off-the-shelf, low cost, secure chiplets at scale.
