Update: Lattice Semiconductor to Acquire SiliconBlue (Dec 09, 2011)
SANTA CLARA, California, June 15, 2009
- New Turbo (-T) option delivers 65% faster speed at ultra-low power
- Expands total number of programmable logic offerings to 20
- SiliconBlue® Technologies, the leading supplier of ultra-low power, single-chip, SRAM FPGAs, today announced availability of a new, high-speed, “turbo” option for its iCE65™ mobileFPGA™ family. Built for high speed using TSMC’s 65nm low power CMOS process, the 65% faster speed grade addresses a growing requirement in consumer mobile applications where higher speed logic solutions in battery-based handheld applications are necessary. Combined with the industry’s only wafer level chip scale package SRAM FPGA, the iCE65 turbo product now offers a complete, unbeatable solution of high speed devices with the lowest power levels, housed within the smallest PCB foot print.
“Consumer handheld designers are constantly creating differentiated products within the confines of extremely small foot prints, increasing system speeds, all at low battery power levels. SiliconBlue addresses these challenges with the new iCE65 turbo product that delivers high-performance, compact, ultra-power efficient programmable logic designs that enable fast deployment of next generation smart phones, ebooks, netbooks and mobile internet devices” says Kapil Shankar, CEO of SiliconBlue Technologies.
