Los Angeles CA (SPX) Mar 15, 2024

QuickLogic Corporation (NASDAQ: QUIK), specializing in embedded FPGA (eFPGA) IP, ruggedized FPGAs, and Endpoint AI/ML solutions, has forged a strategic partnership with Zero-Error Systems America (ZES), renowned for its radiation-hardened-by-design (RHBD) semiconductor solutions and intellectual property (IP). This alliance is set to develop radiation-tolerant eFPGA IP tailored for the burgeoning commercial space sector, specifically aimed at ASICs and SoCs demanding unparalleled reliability in harsh flight and outer space conditions.

The burgeoning Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite market, poised to escalate from $12.6 billion in 2023 to $19.8 billion by 2026, reflects a compound annual growth rate of 15.5%, as reported by MarketsandMarkets. This growth trajectory is fueled by the escalating demand for LEO satellite constellation services coupled with cost-effective launch services. Amidst this expansion, the necessity for reprogrammable hardware that minimizes Size, Weight, and Power (SWAP) has never been more critical, particularly as conventional eFPGA IPs falter in meeting the stringent requirements of radiation-prone space missions.

QuickLogic, in collaboration with ZES, aims to bridge this gap by offering cutting-edge, radiation-resistant eFPGA IP cores and customization services, leveraging ZES's robust RHBD cell libraries. This partnership promises unmatched reliability, swift development times for custom or application-specific eFPGA IP, and optimized performance, area, and power (PPA) metrics to meet the nuanced needs of space missions.

Mao Wang, Senior Director of Product Marketing at QuickLogic, asserts, "Our joint venture with ZES's advanced RHBD cell libraries, combined with our Australis eFPGA IP generator, positions us to furnish mission-critical applications with highly dependable IP cores, ensuring their success."

Craig Gavin, Director of Zero-Error Systems America, lauds QuickLogic's longstanding industry reputation and swift delivery of tailored eFPGA IP cores, emphasizing the partnership's potential to enhance ZES's existing portfolio with vital technologies like Latchup Detection and Protection (LDAP), Point of Load, and Voter integrated circuits.
