Mountain View, Calif. Actel Corp.'s ProASIC Plus FPGAs have passed extensive testing at extreme conditions to achieve compliance with MIL-STD 883 Class B and qualify for use in high-reliability defense applications, such as military avionics and weapons systems.
"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," said Ravi Pragasam, senior manager, military and aerospace product marketing at Actel, in a statement. "Further, the flexible and reconfigurable platform enables the development of a range of designs without schedule delays or excessive engineering costs."
The ProASIC Plus B Flow family consists of three devices ranging in density from 300,000 to 1-million system gates. They 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 and NRE charges.
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 in-system programmability (ISP).
The 883B ProASIC Plus products are shipping now with prices beginning at $860 each for 5K units.
