Digital ICs/DSP: Antifuse-Based FPGAs Offer Military-Qualified Versions

The high-performance nonvolatile Axcelerator family of FPGAs has been qualified to military specifications. Built upon the company's AX architecture, the antifuse-based FPGAs deliver better than 500-MHz internal operation and up to 100% resource utilization. They're available with densities of up to 2 million system gates, up to 640 I/O pads, and up to 288 kbits of memory. The devices offer levels of design security that enable designers to safeguard against overbuilding, cloning, reverse engineering, and denial of service. The AX2000, AX1000, AX500, and AX250 are now available in three packaging and screening options: military-temperature plastic (MTP), military-temperature hermetic (MTH), and hermetic packaging fully screened to MIL-STD 883 class B (883B). In 5000-unit quantities, prices start at $260 each for the MTP devices, $430 each for the MTH units, and $770 each for the 883B devices.
