Today soft processor cores are gaining importance for FPGA based embedded applications, where the end user can configure the processor as per his requirement and achieve the benefits of SOC by implementing other required logic on FPGA fabric. SOC systems require an FPGA with a processor core. Processor cores are classified as either \"Hard\" or \"Soft.\" Hard processor cores added to an FPGA are a hybrid approach, offering performance tradeoffs that fall somewhere between a traditional ASIC and an FPGA; they are available from several manufacturers with a number of different processor flavors.
