FPGA Solutions for Consumer Electronics

Keeping pace with the innovative trends in the field of consumer electronics, FPGA plays a vital role.

The quality of consumer electronic products has significantly improved over the years, with continuous addition of features and integration of new technologies to enhance video connectivity, quality, and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities. Keeping up with these trends and meeting the standards has put immense time pressure on consumer electronics manufacturers.


Manufacturers of consumer goods require chip design platforms that offer high performance, supporting emerging standards to enable 4K and 8K video (such as DisplayPort™, HDMI, SDI, MIPI, LVDS SERDES, PCIe, Ethernet, SLVS-EC, codecs, etc.), while being flexible enough to update their products to support future standards.


Additionally, it is crucial for them to have the agility to bring their products to market ahead of their competitors, particularly for products with shorter lifecycles, where cost-effectiveness is also paramount to ensure a high return on investment.


The traditional design approaches using ASSP or ASIC have significant drawbacks. ASSPs come with predefined feature sets and often lack support for the latest technological advancements, making it challenging for manufacturers to leverage them to differentiate their products.


While ASICs are well-suited for mass production, their longer development cycles contradict the shorter product cycles demanded by the consumer market. Hence, new design approaches are needed to enhance flexibility, accelerate innovation, and reduce development costs.


Intel® FPGAs provide the desired high performance, flexibility, and customization needed to bring your products to market while laying the foundation for improved yields. As market adoption increases, Intel leverages the Intel Custom Logic Continuum to streamline the transition from FPGA to structured ASIC and custom ASIC.
