Fit Fast Structured Array (FFSA™) is
Breakaway Technology for Custom Silicon

FFSA utilizes the innovative metal-configurable standard cell (MCSC) SoC platform technology for the design of ASICs and ASSPs and the seamless replacement of FPGAs.

FFSA significantly reduces time to market and non-recurring engineering (NRE) costs by minimizing customizable mask layers while delivering the advantages of performance, power and lower unit cost associated with standard-cell ASICs.

How Does Fit Fast Structured Array (FFSATM) Measure Up to Existing Technologies?

Require smaller volumes and quick turnaround times? Need to make frequent changes without large re-spin costs?

FFSA technology bridges the gap between:


*These benchmarks were created by Toshiba based on internal calculations comparing size, power and performance to competitive FPGAs.

Fit Fast Structured Array (FFSATM) FAQs

Q. What is the difference between this product and structured ASICs that were available in the market a few years ago?

A. Toshiba's FFSA has achieved significant improvements in die size, routability, performance and power as compared to the structured ASICs that were designed a few years ago.

Q. How do NRE charges compare?

A. NRE for FFSA is up to 5 times lower* than for standard-cell ASICs without compromising unit cost, performance or power.

Q. How fast is turnaround time?

A. Turnaround time is as little as 6 weeks** from receipt of a clean RTL to prototype delivery.
