    and subscriptions is expected to grow from a
    3.6B market in 2000 to a 27B market by 2005
  • Convergence of communication, entertainment,
    navigation and control/comfort features
  • Unlike traditional ASIC-centric automotive
    applications, much of this market is
    characterized by moderate volumes and fast
    time-to-market requirements
  • De-facto standards still being defined
  • Analysts expect the automotive FPGA TAM to grow
    from 8M in 2002 to 50M by 2004 and 122M by
  • Source Gartner Dataquest October 2003 and
    December 2003
