Video: Intel promises PC owners smartphone-like battery life
According to Intel, the combination with eASIC will allow for faster technology deployments with improved performance, cost, power and product life cycles.
The chip giant is also eying gains in market segments like 4G and 5G wireless, networking and IoT via eASIC's structured ASICs offering.
Longer term, Intel says it sees an opportunity to architect a new class of programmable chip that leverages Intel's Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) technology, combining Intel FPGAs with structured ASICs in a system in package solution.
"The marriage of the eASIC technology with IP and capabilities of Intel will allow the ubiquitous deployment of this proven structured ASIC product into a wide breadth of exciting end applications and markets," said Ronnie Vasishta, president and CEO of eASIC.
Krzanich has been at the chipmaker since 1982.
Intel is aiming to compete with Nvidia and AMD in the AI-driven, discrete graphics card market by 2020.
The three technology giants have said they will speed up the commercialisation of 5G systems with their interoperability and development testing.
