XMOS Software Defined Silicon

XMOS Semiconductor plans to introduce a completely new type of programmable semiconductor technology — Software Defined Silicon (SDS). Software Defined Silicon will provide consumer electronics system designers with the unit cost advantage of SoCs and the flexibility of FPGAs. Based on arrays of processors, SDS devices will allow system functions that would normally be implemented in hardware to be defined in software, unifying the design flow for software and hardware. XMOS Semiconductor will be offering chips, software IP and development tools and its first product will be announced during Q1’2008.
