FPGA (programmable door array) chip is a programmable logic chip, unlike ASIC (applied specific integrated circuits), it can be configured on -site, no custom design or hard circuit redesign.FPGA chips have been widely used in high -speed data processing, image processing, network communication and other fields.

The price range and change trend of the FPGA chip

According to market research, the price of FPGA chips ranges from 200 yuan to tens of thousands of yuan.The price of FPGA chips is affected by multiple factors, including chip specifications, chip capacity, chip manufacturing process, customer needs, etc.

In the past few years, the price of FPGA chips has declined as a whole, but the price fluctuations are large.Especially in some high -end models, due to the small demand, the production cost of enterprises is relatively high, resulting in relatively high prices.

FPGA chip price fluctuation

Because the market demand for FPGA chips is very flexible and affected by many factors, the price of FPGA chips often fluctuates.For example, during the new crown pneumonia epidemic in China, the price of FPGA chip rose by more than 30%.

In addition, the global semiconductor shortage is another reason for the price fluctuations in FPGA chips.FPGA chip is a very critical electronic component, which is widely used. Therefore, when semiconductor demand is greater than the supply, the price of FPGA chips often increases.

Reference factor for FPGA chip prices

Customers need to carefully consider many factors that affect price when buying FPGA chips.The most basic factor is the capacity and function of the chip.The price of FPGA chips is usually proportional to the number of internal registers, chip memory and DSP resources.

In addition, designers should also consider other factors such as design cycle, peripheral support, software tools, ecosystems, reliability and technical support.Designers should comprehensively consider these factors and choose suppliers with reasonable prices, stable performance, and good technical support.


The relationship between the price and performance of the FPGA chip

The relationship between the price and performance of the FPGA chip is very complicated, because the performance of the FPGA chip is not only affected by the hardware specifications, but also the influence of its software to support the ECO System.Similarly, the price of FPGA chip depends not only on the hardware specifications, but also includes the comprehensive service of software tools and its corresponding support system.

Therefore, the designer of the FPGA chip should focus on its application and clarify the chip’s demand specifications, performance levels and price budgets in order to choose suitable FPGA chips.

Global FPGA chip manufacturer and their products

Xilinx is one of the largest manufacturers in the global FPGA chip market.Xilinx produces a series of FPGA chips, including Zynq Ultrascale+, Kintex Ultrascale+, Virtex-Ultrascale+and Spartan.

Altera is another manufacturer with a large market share of FPGA chips.Intel acquired the company and renamed Intel FPGA.Intel FPGA market leaders, FPGA products produced include Arria 10, Cyclone, Stratix and other series.


The rise of domestic FPGA chips

Due to the booming domestic chip industry in recent years, in order to reduce security risks and strengthen technology control, the Chinese government encourages local enterprises to develop and produce FPGA chips.

At present, domestic FPGA chip manufacturers include Ziguang Zhanrui, Zhanbo Network, Beacon Communication, etc.These companies are developing new FPGA products to improve technical level and market competitiveness.

in conclusion

In summary, the price of FPGA chips depends on many factors, including hardware specifications, software support, peripheral support, ecosystems, technical support and market demand.When buying a FPGA chip, you need to comprehensively consider multiple factors and choose a proper supplier.The rise of domestic FPGA chips has injected new hope into domestic chips.
