Plug-in cards speed specific FPGA
HMI and miniature motor control daughtercards enable designers to shave months off of their design time and easily meet the most stringent power budgets.
Two new plug-in daughtercards for the Actel Igloo Icicle Kit aim to speed the design of applications with human machine interface (HMI) and miniature motor control functionality Combined with the company's previously announced Igloo-based storage and display-related development boards, design examples and intellectual property (IP) cores, the company believes these new control-related solutions will increase market penetration for Actel's 5uW Igloo FPGAs in the rapidly growing portable market
"Over the past year, we have targeted our ultra-low-power Igloo FPGAs at key functions, such as storage, display, and control, within portable designs", says Actel Vice President, Yankin Tanurhan.
"A platform-based design approach, our soph
