KaiSemi offers silicon solutions for obsolete FPGA and EoL ASICs with netlist

Fabless semiconductor vendor KaiSemi Ltd. has made available of its latest End-of-Life (EoL) solution worldwide, which is based on KaiSemi's proprietary conversion technology, able to automatically convert any FPGA or ASIC chip into a functionally identical ASIC device. KaiSemi receives the customer's netlist and converts it quickly and automatically into a functionally identical ASIC netlist. KaiSemi says it eventually proceeds to tape out, manages the entire manufacturing and shipping processes and provides the customer with a functionally identical, drop-in ASIC replacement chip, within up to 20 weeks.

KaiSemi says its technical breakthrough is an automated conversion tool and process, which were developed by a team whose track record, includes more than 500 successful conversions.

"As process geometries become smaller, and the lifecycles of products and technologies become shorter, more hardware companies face end-of-life problems", said Tomer Kabakov, VP Sales and Marketing at KaiSemi. "This is where we can provide KaiSemi's support. We are able to supply a pin-to-pin, functionally identical ASIC chip, based on the netlist of the obsolete component. The KaiSemi flow is automatic and transparent to the customer".
