Replacing FPGAs with Low Cost ASICs

FPGAs Spartan 2

 

FPGA Conversion Break-Even

We define a FPGA conversion break-even point as being the number of devices you need so that your savings equals the ASIC NRE investment.  Mathematically, this becomes:

Break-Even Volume =                     NRE Charge                      
                                          (FPGA Unit Price – ASIC Unit Price)   

 

FPGAs Spartan 2

The following table list Spartan 2 FPGAs, and the estimated breakeven volume for each part.  In general, if your volumes exceed the breakeven volume in 6 to 9 months, then an Spartan 2 FPGA conversion into an ASIC makes economic sense for you.
