United Kingdom: QuickLogic launched PolarPro, which it claims moves QuickLogic's existing ultra-low-power consumption FPGA formula to a new level. It adds further circuitry to optimise performance when implementing interfaces from deeply embedded processors to high-bandwidth peripherals, such as hard disks and wireless chip sets. The designed-for-purpose architecture means that these interfacing functions may also now be implemented at lower cost.

The new FPGAs have an "instant" deep-sleep standby mode that reduces power consumption to less than 10µA.
