Leveraging Intel® FPGA technology to design and deliver high-quality experiences to consumers with fast time-to-market.
Keeping Up with Innovations in Consumer Electronics with FPGAs
Consumer electronic products are dramatically improving every year, continually adding features and integrating new technologies to improve video connectivity, quality, and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities. Keeping up with these innovations and raising the bar puts tremendous time pressure on consumer electronics manufacturers. Consumer manufacturers need silicon platforms with the performance to support the latest standards that enable 4K and 8K video (DisplayPort™, HDMI, SDI, MIPI, LVDS SERDES, PCIe, Ethernet, SLVS-EC, codecs, and more) as soon as they emerge, the flexibility to update their products to support future standards, and the agility to bring their products to market quickly before their competitors. Cost-effectiveness to ensure a high ROI for a short life-cycle product is critical as well.
Traditional design methodologies of using ASSPs or ASICs can come with significant drawbacks. ASSPs come with a pre-defined feature set and rarely support the latest technology features, making it difficult for manufacturers to offer differentiated products. Although well-suited to high volumes, ASICs have long development cycles that run counter to the short product cycle requirements of consumer markets. Hence, new design methodologies that promote flexibility, rapid innovation, and low development costs are required. Intel® FPGAs deliver the performance, agility, and customization needed to get your products to market while paving the way to higher volumes. As market adoption increases, Intel streamlines the process of transitioning from FPGA to structured ASIC and custom ASIC with the Intel custom logic continuum.
The Intel Consumer Custom Logic Continuum
Intel’s custom logic continuum allows innovative consumer companies to get their products to market fast and maximize ROI as their volumes increase. The custom logic continuum starts with our broad portfolio of Intel® FPGA devices allowing customers to ramp up production and test the market. As volumes rise and market requirements stabilize, we offer eASIC (structured ASIC) and/or HardCopy® ASICs for high-volume manufacturing at competitive development cost to maximize our customers’ returns.
Next Generation TV/Video Displays and Peripherals
Intel FPGAs enable cutting edge display technologies to get to market ahead of the competition. With the FPGA you can enable numerous video and connectivity IPs through in/out ports while simultaneously managing the backlight and dimming of the display itself.
High-quality, high-speed image and video processing with deterministic latency enabling a “no lag” experience. Additionally, re-programmability allows the customer to upgrade their investment without a new purchase.
Lower density, high performance and low power options with dual and quad core ARM processing systems can maximize the processing performance of consumer drones. Additionally, our FPGA AI Suite enables your real-time AI and deep learning needs.
Video and Casino Gaming Machines and Peripherals
Enabling hyper low latency, high performance video display for eSports and casual gaming systems and peripherals with enhanced analytics. Offering casino gaming companies advanced LED management plus security and player tracking capabilities for interactive player experiences.
“Smart” Consumer Products and Wearables
Customizable low power options with high bandwidth and deterministic low latency as well as network function virtualization backend infrastructure with our SmartNIC networking solutions.
Consumer and Prosumer Cameras and Projectors
Utilize the latest in high quality video display and connectivity technology at very low latency while customizing for your I/O needs.
State-of-the-Art Consumer Innovations
The consumer electronics industry is constantly evolving with the latest technology trends. Intel’s FPGA and custom logic continuum enable companies to take advantage of the latest trends by getting to market quickly with enhanced ROI and generational flexibility.

For system designers, the high-performance fabric and intrinsic in-the-field reconfigurability of Intel® FPGAs provide the agility, flexibility, and customizability needed to be competitive in the consumer electronics market.
Intel® eASIC™ devices are structured ASICs, an intermediary technology between FPGAs and standard-cell ASICs. These devices provide lower unit-cost and lower power compared to FPGAs and faster time to market and lower non-recurring engineering cost compared to standard-cell ASICs.
Intel® easicopy™ devices provide OEMs with a seamless path from Intel® eASIC™ devices to cell-based ASICs, thereby enabling OEMs to further reduce device cost and power consumption and increase performance.
