PLDs Serve High-Volume Communications Apps

Aimed at high-volume applications in the communications and computing markets, the ACE family of mid-density programmable logic devices (PLDs) ranges from 20,000 to approximately 150,000 gates and facilitates high performance solutions with a typical system speed of 160 MHz. All of the devices in the new PLD family are fully 64-bit, 66-MHz PCI compliant and offer what’s reported to be the lowest cost-per-logic element of any of the firm’s product families. The chips are suited for high-volume, price-sensitive applications such as cable modems, xDSL modems, and low-cost switches, as well as computing applications like laser printers and PC peripherals. The devices are available in a wide range of packages, including the firm’s FineLine BGA packaging.
