London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) June 23, 2011 -- Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) across the globe are increasingly opting for Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) instead of Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) in order to reduce the time to market. FPGAs offer flexibility and facilitate rapid prototyping. FPGAs also offer an advantage of testing and verifying a concept in hardware without passing through the long fabrication process. Engineers can then make changes and can run number of iterations on an FPGA circuit within hours, rather than in weeks.
As design requirements often change over a period of time, the cost of implementing these incremental changes to FPGAs are almost negligible as compared to the large expense associated with other ICs, such as ASICs. The impact of this driver is expected to be high in the short term period, until 2014. The graph below explains how missing the market window will wipe out all the profits from development and production

FPGA designers are continuing to increase the performance window by adding more functionality into FPGAs and replacing ASICs and ASSPs, while demanding higher system performance. Although the newest 28nm generation FPGAs consumes less power than previous 90nm products, FPGAs still consume a large share of total system power. Designers nowadays design into tighter and smaller spaces, making it hard to provide better airflow and set up proper size heat sinks. Therefore, thermal management and consequently power management both contribute to an area of concern for high-end FPGA design.
