CPLD And FPGA Families Add New Members

Adding to the CoolRunner-II CPLD family, the XC2C32A and XC2C64A debut in smaller MLF packages than their predecessors and integrate an additional I/O bank to support voltage level translation and device interfacing. They are available in 32 and 64 macro-cell densities, respectively, and are suitable for use with interfacing busses and devices that use varying voltages and standards. Additionally, the CPLDs are available as lead-free devices. Prices for the XC2C32A and XC2C64A are $0.85 and $1.20 each/250,000, respectively. The company has also announced the industry’s lowest power FPGAs, which are additions to the Spartan-3L family. These devices rely on refined 90-nm technology and a unique hibernation mode to deliver quiescent-power reductions up to 98%. The hibernate mode offers two levels of power reduction: standby mode allowing up to 68% lower power and active power management mode for up to 98% lower power. In active power management mode, the 1M-gate XC3S1000L and 1.5M-gate XC3S1500L consume less than 6 mA and 8 mA, respectively. Prices for the XC3S1000L and XC3S1500L are under $14 and $22 each/250,000, respectively. XILINX INC., San Jose, CA. (408) 559-7778.
