Efinix announces AEC-Q100 qualification for Trion FPGA product line
Efinix, a supplier of programmable product platforms, has announced AEC-Q100 qualification for several members of its Trion line of FPGAs and a major initiative to extend both its Trion and Titanium product lines into automotive markets.
The first products to be released with AEC-Q100 qualification are the Trion T13 and T20 FPGAs in the F169 and F256 packages. These devices feature a mix of I/O and embedded MIPI CSI-2 controllers, making them suitable for vision and display systems. AEC-Q100 Grade 2 qualification will help to enlarge the available market space for these devices and will pave the way for their adoption in automotive applications.
“With the increasing levels of technology in modern vehicles, the automotive Semiconductor market is growing rapidly,” said Mark Oliver, VP of Marketing at Efinix. “Our drive to bring AEC-Q100 qualification to the Efinix portfolio of FPGAs demonstrates our commitment to bringing Efinix to the automotive market.”
As Efinix expands its portfolio of AEC-Q100 qualified devices to include Titanium FPGAs, so the rollout will expand the usage of the high-performance, ultra-low power Titanium family in new markets. The growing portfolio of AEC-Q100 qualified devices is intended to form the foundation of a comprehensive automotive strategy that includes the goal of ISO-26262 certification to complement AEC-Q100 qualification in automotive designs.
“Automotive applications demand assurance of quality by design and longevity in harsh environments,” said Ming Ng, SVP of Operations and Applications at Efinix. “Delivering AEC-Q100 qualification across our product portfolio and working to achieve ISO-26262 certification as part of our comprehensive automotive initiative demonstrates our commitment to delivering the level of quality that is designed into every Efinix product.”
