Low-cost FPGAs in 3 x 3 mm package

26 November 2008 Programmable Logic

Actel has introduced ‘nano’ versions of its Igloo and ProASIC3 FPGAs at very competitive price levels, targeted at the high-volume, portable consumer market.

With power consumption as low as 2 μW, Igloo nano FPGAs range in densities from 10 K to 250 K system gates. These devices support 1,2 V to 1,5 V core and I/O operation, ultra-low-power Flash*Freeze mode with bus hold capability, as well as advanced I/O features such as hot swapping and Schmitt trigger inputs.

Actel is offering the new FPGAs in a 3 x 3 mm package, said to be the smallest for any programmable logic device on the market. The company is also enhancing its standard commercial ambient operating temperatures, offering new ranges for Igloo nano FPGAs from -20°C to +70°C.
