The article presents information on the plans of Actel Corp. to capture the low power FPGA market with a flash-based family of electronic devices. Dennis Kish, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Actel has stated that low power is about to become a huge differentiator. The U.S. firm reckons wireless trends plus shorter development times and time-to-market, are creating a void for lower power FPGAs.
