Cheung said that he and his co-founder Tony Ngai, CTO, had formed the company setting out to build a flexible, more efficient FPGA architecture. Conventional FPGA architectures are limited by having to engineer routing blocks for worst-case routing, are not suitable for integration in ASICs and ASSPs because they require special silicon process recipe tweaks.
By moving to a universal block that can be either logic or routing gains an advantage of fine-grained flexibility and optimization, good wide bus performance and flexible pipelining for PPA trade-offs, Cheung said.
"We will get revenue this year from some customers who have prepaid but we are looking to ramp product sales in 2018, Cheung said.
