Efinix® Partners with Samsung to Develop Quantum™ eFPGAs on 10nm Silicon Process

SANTA CLARA, Calif. and SEOUL, Korea, May 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Efinix®, an innovator in programmable product platforms and technologies, and Samsung Electronics today announced a partnership to develop Quantum eFPGAs on Samsung’s 10nm silicon process.

“It’s a major leap from 40nm Trion™ T20 FPGA to 10nm Quantum eFPGA. We are achieving PDK to GDS with the advantage of the silicon process-agnostic nature of our Quantum architecture and the tremendous support by the Samsung Memory Business Unit,” said Sammy Cheung, co-founder, CEO, and president of Efinix. “Combining Quantum Power-Performance-Area advantage with Samsung’s leading-edge silicon manufacturing technology, the partnership will offer the most advanced FPGA silicon solutions for markets like AI, Data Centers and Communication Infrastructure.”

“We are glad to see Efinix has made great progress since our initial investment in the company in 2017,” said representative of Samsung Venture Investment Corporation. “We envision Efinix’s FPGA technology embedded inside many other Samsung solutions in the future.”

“Efinix has created the most competitive FPGA technology in the Power-Performance-Area by combining Quantum eFPGA and the Samsung 10nm FinFET process,” said Bill Hata, former senior vice president of Worldwide Operations and Engineering at Altera Corporation (now part of Intel). Hata has more than 30 years of semiconductor industry experience and serves on Efinix’s Advisory Board. “Developing FPGA products on a FinFET process is extremely difficult and challenging. Efinix has accomplished this feat in a short time demonstrating superior engineering and program management.”

Fate of Danau Kota Ramadan Bazaar traders bleak

KUALA LUMPUR, More than 100 hawkers and traders at the Danau Kota Ramadan Bazaar have asked the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (KLCH) to allow them to carry out their usual businesses at the site, and also issue business licenses to them.

This was following KLCH’s action in issuing a directive to close the bazaar a day before the fasting month which was regarded as outrageous and would result in losses to the traders as preparations had been made for the past several months.

Danau Kota Bazaar Ramadan Association spokesman, Mior Rahimi Mior Harun, 67, told Bernama he was disappointed with the KLCH management on the status of their trading site which had not been resolved.

He said KLCH should have informed the traders on the bazaar’s closure a month earlier, and not by giving sudden closure order.

We were told one day before the Ramadan month verbally. There was no order or notice issued before this that we (traders) are not allowed to do business on the existing site, so we don’t have time to do anything, he added.

”In this short period of time, it is impossible for the traders to find a new site as they have been making preparations to do business for Ramadan, and now, we are facing a RM2,000 to RM,6000 loss, said Mior Rahimi.

He added the traders had sent the applications for the bazaar since Jan 22, but there was no response from KLCH for the last four months, until the closing order was issued last Sunday (May 5).

In addition, Mior Rahimi stressed that the traders would not budge from doing business at the bazaar even if they were prevented from doing so by KLCH.

Explaining further, he said the traders had been doing business for more than 20 years at the Danau Kota Bazaar Ramadan site, and never came across such a problem before.

We will continue doing our businesses since we have made preparations since several months ago until we hear the final say from DBKL. If we don’t do any business (for Ramadan), we will not have any income for the Hari Raya celebrations, he said.

Meanwhile, KLCH Socio-Economic Development executive director, Datuk Ibrahim Yusoff said no approval had been been issued to the operation of Danau Kota Bazaar Ramadan site this year, and traders were warned not to continue their businesses.

They need to apply for licences from DBKL if they want to operate their businesses at the site, and if they are still adamant, we will take action, he added.

KLCH Zone Enforcement Division chief Muhammad Irwan Abdullah said the enforcement officers will seize the business stalls if traders were still stubbornly conducting businesses without licences in the area.

He said this was to ensure the safety of the traders and consumers were assured

There is a reason why DBKL did not allow them to trade there, and if they are still don’t want to budge, we will have to actions by seizing the stalls, he said when contacted by Bernama today.
