Logic family overcomes limited number of I/O ports in micro-based embedded systems
STMicroelectronics has introduced the Xpander Logic family to help customers overcome the limited number of I/O ports in microcontroller and microprocessor-based embedded systems. Any existing or additional I/O-intensive tasks on the central processing unit (CPU) can be now reassigned to the Xpander Logic IC that operates off ultra-low power and comes in a very small package, making it ideal for portable multimedia devices such as mobile phones,...
QuickLogic's ultra-low-power FPGA family extended to 300,000 gates
QuickLogic Europe has released of 300,000- and 200,000-gate versions of the PolarPro device. Designated QL1P300 and QL1P200, these large FPGAs with embedded SRAM are the third and fourth members of the PolarPro family to reach full production status. They complement existing versions with 100,000 and 75,000 gates. By combining the flexibility and fast development times of FPGAs with ASIC-like density and very low power consumption, QL1P200 and...
