The Market for a New Class of Devices - Field Programmable Computing Arrays

Phoenix, Arizona April 21, 2008 - The programmable logic market has evolved in performance and capability as the industry strives to deliver innovative products geared towards existing and emerging applications. This evolution has given rise to a class of devices that Semico believes is different from traditional programmable logic solutions, warranting a new classification. These devices are coined as Field Programmable Computing Arrays (FPCAs), and offer the combination of programmability, reconfigurability, cost, performance and power that many system designers are seeking.

Semico forecasts this new market segment of FPCAs can grow to become a substantial portion of the overall programmable logic market, with a market opportunity exceeding $2.6 billion in 2012. Semico also considers that new entrants to this market segment with competitive solutions are a real possibility over time, as companies see the success of this architectural approach.

“The gating factor in the overall, long-term success for this type of architecture is the underlying trend driving the adoption of the silicon solution itself.That trend is towards increased and enhanced connectivity for consumers to high definition audio and video content and for business persons to acquire better access to their business applications data,” says Rich Wawrzyniak, Sr. Analyst at Semico Research.

Semico has profiled several end markets and applications with high growth rates where FPCA can deliver tangible benefits to system architects. These markets along with a detailed analysis of the factors that will drive the adoption of FPCAs market can be found in Semico’s report The Market for Field Programmable Computing Arrays, SC101-08.
