With superior FPGA and CPLD products, Xilinx is the leader in the digital programmable logic device (PLD) market that the products are used in numerous applications within telecommunications, automotive, consumer, defense and aerospace with commercial, industrial, military, and space grade。Xilinx offers device families for glue logic (CoolRunner, CoolRunner II), low-cost (Spartan), and high-end (Virtex) applications in addition to supporting devices such as PROMs. The Virtex-II Pro, Virtex-4, and Virtex-5 FPGA families are of particular interest to system-on-a-chip (SoC) designers because they can include up to two embedded IBM PowerPC cores. These designs are capable of running a regular embedded OS (such as Linux or vxWorks) and interfacing with custom logic implemented in the surrounding fabric.
Actel Corporation is the leading supplier of nonvolatile, low-power programmable technologies. The company's mission is to manage power consumption at both the chip and system level, leveraging the industry's lowest power FPGAs and unique mixed-signal FPGAs to offer system designers a competitive edge. Actel's history of reliability, coupled with its unique flash-based technology, sets them apart from traditional FPGA manufacturers. Whether you're designing applications for consumer and portable medical markets, tomorrow's environmentally friendly data centers, industrial controls, and the automotive, space and military/aerospace markets, power matters.
