Company Continues to Strengthen Military Offering With Fully-Qualified Flexible and Reprogrammable Platform
"Especially in military avionics applications, the reliability of each individual component is critical," said Ravi Pragasam, senior manager, military and aerospace product marketing at Actel. "While competitive products only offer mil-temp variations and have not gone through extensive MIL-STD 883B qualification and testing, Actel's ProASIC Plus B Flow family offers customers complete assurance that each device has been fully tested to full military specifications. Further, the flexible and reconfigurable platform enables the development of a range of designs without schedule delays or excessive engineering costs."
About the ProASIC Plus B Flow Family
The ProASIC Plus B Flow family, based on Actel's second-generation flash-based FPGAs, consists of three devices ranging in density from 300,000 to 1-million system gates. Offering a compelling alternative to custom ASICs and SRAM-based FPGAs, Actel's ProASIC Plus FPGAs combine a fine-grained, single-chip ASIC-like architecture and nonvolatile flash configuration memory. The devices are live at power-up, low power, highly secure and require no separate configuration memory. Unlike ASICs, the devices require no NRE charges and offer fast prototyping and release to production. Other key features of the ProASIC Plus family include multiple phase-locked loops (PLLs), support for up to 198k bits of two-port embedded SRAM and 712 user-configurable I/Os, with improved in-system programmability (ISP).
