Microchip RISC-V FPGA SoC, Tools Provide Mid-Range Power, Performance and Thermal Alternative - Story

December 07, 2021

Both Xilinx and Intel are prioritizing the data center, which is driving programmable logic R&D towards high-performance sockets. In some cases, these trends are influencing the evolution of applications in the embedded electronics sector as well. But there are countless applications for which power consumption and heat dissipation are just as, if not more, important than performance. These use cases are often found at the edge and encompass everything from sensor hubs to display controllers to image processing and AI inferencing platforms.
