Actel Now Shipping the Fusion Advanced Development Kit

Enables the Development of Sophisticated System and Power Management Solutions Using Actel's Flash-Based Fusion Mixed-Signal FPGAs

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Actel Corporation (NASDAQ: ACTL) today announced that it is shipping the Fusion Advanced Development Kit. Featuring Actel Fusion(R) mixed-signal FPGAs, the kit enables the development of system and power management applications in a single board with multiple on-board voltage regulators, an array of indicator LEDs, and an OLED display to provide direct feedback on flag status, system messages, and voltage, temperature, or current readings. The Fusion Advanced Development Kit provides significant resources for flexible system management development, including a web-enabled development environment, an ARM(R) Cortex(TM)-M1-enabled mixed-signal Fusion device, and extensive digital and analog connectivity. This kit also serves as the platform for the Mixed-Signal Power Manager Demonstration, a reference design that delivers superior power monitoring, power sequencing and threshold control of up to 16 external power supplies.


"Actel's new Fusion Advanced Development Kit provides designers targeting Fusion mixed-signal FPGAs with a robust hardware platform for rapid development and quick time-to-market of designs requiring system or power management," said Rich Kapusta, vice president marketing and business development. "At Actel, we recognize that 'Power Matters' means not only offering the world's lowest power FPGAs, but also enabling designers to reduce power at the system level."
