Actel unveils nonvolatile reprogrammable gate array

Designers at Actel Corp. of Sunnyvale, Calif., are introducing their ProASIC family of reprogrammable gate arrays, which operate at low power and simplify board design by eliminating the need for a boot device. ProASICs represent a non-volatile, single-chip, "live-at-power-up" family of devices, which will have densities ranging from 100,000 system gates to as many as 1.1 million system gates. ProASIC devices are compatible with application-specific integrated tools and methods, so ASIC designe

Actel unveils nonvolatile reprogrammable gate array

Designers at Actel Corp. of Sunnyvale, Calif., are introducing their ProASIC family of reprogrammable gate arrays, which operate at low power and simplify board design by eliminating the need for a boot device. ProASICs represent a non-volatile, single-chip, "live-at-power-up" family of devices, which will have densities ranging from 100,000 system gates to as many as 1.1 million system gates. ProASIC devices are compatible with application-specific integrated tools and methods, so ASIC designers can use all of their existing tools and scripts. Actel officials will begin sampling the devices in fall 1999.
