Abstract

As silicon technologies improve complete sys- tems on a chip (SoC) are becoming a reality. In addition, the improvement in technology is also dri- ving programmable technologies which can now offer comparable performance and cost to solutions which had been traditionally implemented using gate array technologies. Products are now emerging which can offer the benefits of both high effective gate count, required for SoC; combined with the rapid time to market and prototyping associated with programmable technologies.
