Superior interconnect

ISSCC_Award outstanding paper 2014.jpg

Flex Logix utilizes a new breakthrough interconnect architecture: less than half the silicon area of traditional mesh interconnect, fewer metal layers, higher utilization and higher performance.  The ISSCC 2014 paper detailing this technology won the ISSCC Lewis Winner Award for Outstanding Paper. Previous recent winners of this top award include Nvidia, Bosch, Sandisk and Toshiba.  The interconnect continues to be improved resulting in new patents.

SUPERIOR SCALABILITY

Customers want a silicon proven solution at low cost.  But customers want different numbers of LUTs.  Flex Logix innovation allows our EFLX4K core and EFLX150 core to be easily and quickly arrayed, without any GDS changes, from a 1x1 array to a 7x7 array (5x5 for EFLX100/150).  

SUPERIOR LOW-POWER DESIGN METHODOLOGY

EFLX cores can be power gated, if desired, to reduce power demand for different applications.

MULTIPLE CLOCK DOMAINS AT LOW SKEW

Each EFLX core can have two clock domains and the array can have up to 8 total, all with low skew.

RAM OF ANY KIND/SIZE

We can provide the exact kind and amount of RAM you need integrated in your EFLX array.

SUPERIOR SOFTWARE

Our EFLX compiler is fully operational, proven with our silicon, and working at multiple customers.   The EFLX Compiler continues to improve as we now added GUI features.
