In the embedded domain, custom hardware in the form of ASICs is often used to implement critical parts of applications when performance and energy efficiency goals cannot be met with software implementations on a general purpose processor or DSP. The downsides of using ASICs include high non-recurring engineering costs, inability to accommodate changes in the application after production, and inability to reuse hardware for new applications. However, by allowing a degree of post-programmability… CONTINUE READING
