Actel to broaden rad-hard FPGA offerings

Engineers at Actel Corp. in Sunnyvale, Calif., are expanding their line of radiation-tolerant field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). The new RTSX-S devices, which Actel experts say they will qualify for space applications, are based on Actel`s 0.25-micron antifuse SX-A FPGAs. Fabricating the new devices will be Matsushita Electronics Co. in Japan. Actel has identified two devices for the new rad-tolerant FPGA line — the RTSX32S with 56,000 system gates, and the RTSX72S with 108,000 system
