SANTA CLARA, USA: SiliconBlue Technologies, a leading supplier of ultra-low power, single-chip, SRAM FPGAs, announced availability of a new, high-speed, “turbo” option for its iCE65 mobileFPGA family.
Built for high speed using TSMC’s 65nm low power CMOS process, the 65 percent faster speed grade addresses a growing requirement in consumer mobile applications where higher speed logic solutions in battery-based handheld applications are necessary.
Combined with the industry’s only wafer level chip scale package SRAM FPGA, the iCE65 turbo product now offers a complete, unbeatable solution of high speed devices with the lowest power levels, housed within the smallest PCB foot print.
“Consumer handheld designers are constantly creating differentiated products within the confines of extremely small foot prints, increasing system speeds, all at low battery power levels. SiliconBlue addresses these challenges with the new iCE65 turbo product that delivers high-performance, compact, ultra-power efficient programmable logic designs that enable fast deployment of next generation smart phones, ebooks, netbooks and mobile internet devices,” says Kapil Shankar, CEO of SiliconBlue Technologies.
Customers can immediately begin designing with these new product/package combinations using the iCEcube VHDL/Verilog-based development software.
Unit cost for iCE65L04-T in CS63 package is $1.95US, and $3.90US for the iCE65L08 in CC72, both in 1M unit quantities (2010). CS63 is now available in high volume and CC72 available in sample quantities. All devices are available now in both sample and production quantities.
