The portable, low-cost FlashPro Lite programmer is designed for use with Actel's Flash-based ProASIC Plus family of FPGAs

The portable, low-cost FlashPro Lite programmer is designed for use with Actel's Flash-based ProASIC Plus family of field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). Actel's next-generation programmer has been size-optimised to create a very compact product that allows customers to program devices using a laptop computer at any location.

The new FlashPro Lite enables designers to explore the in-system programmability (ISP) and FlashLock on-chip security system features of the company's low-power, reprogrammable ProASIC Plus FPGAs.

The portable, cost-effective programming solution provides designers with access to an ASIC alternative when designing applications in the industrial, communications, networking and avionics markets.

FlashPro Lite supports the Standard Test and Programming Language (STAPL), making the device independent of any specific programming algorithms.

The algorithm is embedded into the programming file, independent of the FlashPro software, enabling the same programming file to be used with other STAPL-compliant programmers.

Actel's next-generation programmer draws power from the target board rather than an external power brick, making for a very compact and portable device.

Further, Actel's programming solutions implement a 26-pin header to connect to the target board, thereby allowing designers to program a board built for FlashPro Lite using either Actel's FlashPro or Silicon Sculptor programmers.

FlashPro Lite is supported by the same FlashPro software as Actel's FlashPro programmer, providing an easy transition from one programmer to another for customers accustomed to using the software.

The low-cost FlashPro Lite portable programmer is currently available for use with Actel's ProASIC Plus device family.

Pricing begins at $150.

FlashPro Lite is also included in Actel's low-cost ProASIC Plus starter kit introduced in March 2003, at a price of $249.
