Efinix� Announces Trion� Titanium Tapeout at TSMC 16 nm Process Node

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Efinix�, an innovator in programmable product platforms and technology, today announced the tapeout of its Ti60 FPGA at TSMC�s 16 nm process node. The device is the first in the Trion� Titanium family and features the Quantum� compute fabric for enhanced compute and acceleration capabilities. Titanium family devices offer 3x the operating frequency and occupy a quarter of the area when compared to the previous-generation Trion family devices. This makes them ideal for applications such as vision systems with embedded artificial intelligence and near data processing from data center to the edge.

�The Titanium family ushers in a new era of FPGAs at Efinix. With enhanced compute capabilities, faster speed, and tiny size, they will set new price performance points for embedded computing,� said Tony Ngai, Efinix co-founder, CTO, and SVP of engineering. �The low power dissipation of the Titanium family members makes them ideal for edge and near data applications where uncontrolled and harsh environments are commonplace.�

The Ti60 will immediately be available under the Reconfigurable Acceleration Platform (RAP) initiative in die form, as a licensable core, and as a traditional packaged FPGA. The RAP initiative makes Efinix FPGA technology readily available in a variety of packaging options facilitating System in Package (SiP) and highly integrated applications. RAP also offers a series of software abstractions to speed time to market with embedded accelerators for the RISC-V cores available on Efinix devices.

�Going forward, there are many markets such as wireless infrastructure and high volume ASSPs that are not well served by traditionally packaged FPGAs due to power and cost,� said Sammy Cheung, Efinix co-founder, CEO and president. �By making the Titanium family part of our groundbreaking RAP initiative, we are making Quantum technology with embedded RISC-V cores available to those markets. This will unlock the enormous potential of FPGAs and speed time to market in embedded solutions and ASSPs for near data and heterogeneous compute applications.�

Efinix is extending its collaborative relationship with TSMC beyond the 16 nm Titanium engagement and has started development activities on its next generation products in TSMC�s high performance 5 nm process node. Through these programs and the RAP initiative, Efinix will make Quantum cores available in 16 nm, 12 nm, and 5 nm process nodes and in densities ranging from 10K LEs to 5M LEs.

�We are pleased to collaborate with Efinix using our industry-leading manufacturing techniques to deliver the Trion Titanium to market,� said Lucas Tsai, Director of Business Management at TSMC North America. �We look forward to a continued partnership with Efinix to enable innovative high-density FPGA products with TSMC�s advanced process technologies.�
