There was a time - in the dim historical past - when foundries actually made ASICs with only 5000 to 50,000 logic gates. But FPGAs and CPLDs conquered those markets and pushed ASIC silicon toward opportunities with more logic, volume, and speed. Today's largest FPGAs approach the few-million-gate size of a typical ASIC design, and continue to sprout(More)
Designers can create completely new processors with custom instruction set architectures (ISA), using various methods involving configurable logic. Configurable technologies also enable designers to enhance the basic ISA of standard processors or the ISA of a proprietary processor to execute at speed workloads for which the processor has not been initially(More)
