Technology Wanted

Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) Patents

Buying patented inventions for use in programmable chips.

Overview

Seeking patents related to integrated circuits designed to be configured by the customer or designer after manufacturing.

The FPGA configuration is generally specified using a hardware description language (HDL), similar to that used for an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC). FPGAs can be used to implement any logical function that an ASIC could perform. The ability to update the functionality after shipping, partial re-configuration of a portion of the design and the low non-recurring engineering costs relative to an ASIC design, offer advantages for many applications.
