Actel Presents Live Debate at ESC Silicon Valley

Jim Turley and Clive "Max" Maxfield to Debate on Standalone Processor vs. Processor in FPGA

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 13 — (PRNewswire) — Actel Corporation (Nasdaq: ACTL) today announced it will sponsor the Standalone Processor vs. Processor in FPGA debate at Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) Silicon Valley in San Jose, Calif. The participants in this lively debate include Jim Turley, CEO of Silicon Insider and Max Maxfield, president of Techbites Interactive. Turley will argue that system designers are better off choosing a standalone processor such as a traditional microprocessor or microcontroller, while Maxfield will make the case that the best choice is often embedding the system processor within an FPGA.

The debate will be moderated by Rich Nass, director of content and media at EE Times Group, which owns EE Times and the Embedded Systems Conference.
