Kit gets started on FPGA designs
Actel has released a low-cost starter kit for its cost-competitive Flash-based, reprogrammable ProASIC Plus FPGA devices
The new starter kit will enable Actel customers to explore various benefits of the nonvolatile, low-power FPGAs, including in-system programmability (ISP), I/O advantages and Actel's FlashLock on-chip security system, as well as efficiently evaluate the performance and functionality of their designs for cost-sensitive ASIC alternative applications in the industrial, communications, networking and avionics markets.
The ProASIC Plus starter kit is a complete package consisting of an evaluation board with an APA075 ProASIC Plus device, Actel Libero Gold integrated design environment, a low-cost programmer, programming cable, power supply, tutorials and support documentation.
Designers using the ProASIC Plus starter kit will be able to quickly create a design and program a device for minimal cost.
Within the Actel Libero Gold integrated design environment, customers will have access to Model Technology's ModelSim simulation and design verification software; Synplicity's Synplify synthesis software; and the Actel Designer Series place-and-route software.
Designers will also have the ability to generate a STAPL file that can be used for programming the kit's evaluation board using Actel's low-cost programmer.
The low-cost ProASIC Plus starter kit will be available in April for $249.
All seven devices of the ProASIC Plus FPGA family are also available in all packages, speed grades and temperature ranges.
