Actel is sampling the A500K180 and A500K270 flash-based ProASIC 500K gate FPGAs with 369,000 and 473,000 system gates, respectively.

Actel is sampling the A500K180 and A500K270 flash-based ProASIC 500K gate FPGAs which, with 369,000 and 473,000 system gates, respectively, are claimed to be the highest-density nonvolatile single-chip "live-at-power-up" reprogrammable solutions available Implemented in a standard CMOS logic process, the A500K180 and -270 devices combine low power and flash-based nonvolatility with an ASIC-like architecture that delivers predictable performance and great routing efficiency

Specifically, the devices' novel routing hierarchy and structure enable up to 95 percent gate u
