The inherent flexibility of ArcticPro eFPGA enables unique post-manufacturing design flexibility that significantly expands the applications and use cases for SoCs. ArcticPro eFPGA also provides Nations Technologies with a degree of "future proofing" by making it possible for the SoC to support new functions as the IoT market and customer requirements evolves. With these benefits, Nations Technologies can improve the leverage it gets from its R&D investments.

"The IoT market is large and fragmented," said Jay Liang, VP of engineering at Nations Technologies. "By adding QuickLogic's ultra-low power eFPGA technology we can gain a high degree of flexibility, which allows us to build a single SoC capable of addressing many applications. In addition, we can add new functionality as customer needs evolve. Both of these factors leverage the investment we make in building the SoC and allow us to maximize its value." 

"Nations Technologies is a leader in China's IC design industry," said Mao Wang, director of product marketing at QuickLogic Corporation. "This design win is a testament to the benefits provided by our eFPGA technology, especially as it relates to the huge and rapidly growing IoT space."
