Platform Compares Low-Power Logic Devices From Multiple Vendors

For designers deciding which programmable logic device best suits their application's power requirements, the Power Comparison Resource Package demonstration platform compares performance features of low-power FPGAs and CPLDs from Altera, Lattice, QuickLogic, and Xilinx. Designed to help users make the best decisions based on power constraints and requirements, the resource package includes a programmable logic video, power comparison demo platform, white paper created by a third-party consultant, and access to a micro website. The third-party study covers design issues associated with low-power FPGA and CPLD technology and describes different architectures. It also presents actual board-level test data comparing each vendor's devices including details on why and when different architectures will consume excessive amounts of power. Data includes in-rush current at device start-up together with static, dynamic, and idle-mode power during normal operation. The video clip and white paper are available at no cost, downloadable from the company's website. QUICKLOGIC CORP., Sunnyvale, CA. (408) 990-4000.
