Dr. DSP is right. FPGA guys (esp Lattice) have been able to crack the consumer market with their low cost offerings. As far as data is concerned, the CPLD revenue numbers will be a justified pointer to amount of PLD used in consumer market as it drives the volumes for them. No detailed data of PLD breakup into consumer market.

It would be interesting if the PLD numbers could be broken out more by segments. The FPGA guys have been talking about cracking the consumer market while they are bringing device costs down. Are we finally turning the corner where low cost PLD/FPGAs are growing the consumer segment? Anyone have some more detailed data they can share?

Good news for Altera & Xilinx! I guess this trend will continue for atleast another 5 years. Increasing NRE, tool & Fab costs justifies only extreme high volume products to be designed as an ASIC.

Hi Peter, I wonder how much of this PLD growth is due to growth that would have otherwise gone to ASICs?

This will be a serious sign for electronic semiconductor component industries as if the sale of PLD increases that will ultimately lead towards reduction of sale of logic semiconductor ICs.

Sure, the emerging markets are moving deep into embedded and PLD markets more than any other area. These markets are getting smarter understanding these technologies to help develop new solutions in their mobile and ICT industries.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
