Flash-based FPGA family combines dramatically reduced power consumption with up to 350MHz operation.

The ProASIC3L family of FPGAs from Actel Corporation is aimed at designers of high-performance power-conscious systems Featuring 40% lower dynamic power and 90% lower static power than its previous-generation ProASIC3 FPGAs, the new Flash-based family combines dramatically reduced power consumption with up to 350MHz operation

As a result, designers in high-performance market segments, such as industrial, medical and scientific, now have access to flexible, feature-rich solutions that offer speed, low power and low cost.

The ProASIC3L family also supports the free implementation of an FPGA-optimised 32bit ARM Cortex-M1 processor, allowing system designers to select the Actel Flash-based FPGA solution that best meets their speed and power design requirements regardless of application or volume.

"The importance of power consumption is not a question, but a statement of fact",
