Sunnyvale, Calif.--Aug. 26, 1997--Actel Corp. (Sunnyvale, Calif.) has made FPGA prototyping simpler and easier with the announced availability of two new sockets tooled specifically for Actel by Yamaichi Electronics, a supplier of prototype and production sockets.
The two new sockets are for the 176-pin TQFP and 240-pin QFP packages and a complete line of sockets designed to accommodate all Actel FPGAs in TQFP, PQFP, RQFP, and VQFP packages.
The new sockets accommodate Actel's high-capacity DX family up to 30,000 gates, as well as the high-performance ACT 3 family and the high-value XL family which runs up to 8,000.
Furthermore, the sockets' footprints match those of the Actel parts they support so the same board design can be used in both the prototype and production stages.
The sockets are available now through Actel in quantities of up to 24. Orders for more than 24 units can be handled directly through Yamaichi at (408) 456-0797.
