eASIC Nextreme

The eASIC Nextreme™ family at 90 nm drastically reduces development cost, and turn-around times compared to standard cell ASICs, while significantly reducing power consumption and unit cost for designs that start off as FPGAs. eASIC Nextreme devices use a patented breakthrough concept combining configurable Look-up Table (LUT) cells with customized single-via interconnect. The interconnect is customized quickly and inexpensively with an alternative lithography approach called Direct-Write eBeam. Direct-Write eBeam flexibility enables different patterns to be easily printed directly onto the same wafer. The resulting rapid turnaround time, make eASIC Nextreme ASICs an ideal solution both for prototyping and low-volume production. When a customer design goes to high volume, a single via mask can be created for customization.
