World's Fastest CMOS FPGA is 3-4x speed of highest end existing FPGAs
Achronix also reported that the prototype device was tested over a wide temperature range from -196C to +130C and over operating voltages from 0.2V to 3.9V and operated correctly under all of these conditions. "While these conditions may be extreme for commercial use, this is a good initial test of the commercial architecture that will be the basis of our Military/Aerospace 'XTREME' product family. The 'XTREME' family is designed to withstand these types of conditions in the presence of high radiation," said John Lofton Holt, Chairman and CEO of Achronix.
Achronix Semiconductor is a fabless privately held New York-based Corporation that builds the world's fastest field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). FPGAs have reconfigurable digital circuits and are ubiquitous in the world of digital electronics. Applications of FPGAs include Digital Signal Processing, communications, aerospace and defense systems, ASIC prototyping, medical imaging, computer vision, speech recognition, cryptography, bioinformatics, computer hardware emulation and a growing range of other areas. They parallel ASICs, and are used to enable short time-to-market, fast debugging of prototypes and field upgrades. In terms of cost and performance, they break even at a lower quantity than an ASIC. The Company's products are designed to operate with performance and cost characteristics that make the break even much higher and create opportunities for new types of products that require high performance computing but haven't been able to use FPGAs to date.
