QuickLogic(R) Corporation’s (NASDAQ:QUIK) QL1P1000, which is the latest member of the PolarPro(TM) family, is now available in a mil-spec temperature rating. PolarPro, the industry’s lowest power configurable technology, is available in sizes of up to 1 million gates and offers unparalleled design security.
The QL1P1000 features ViaLink(R) technology, which offers significant benefits for battery-powered, mission critical applications. The PolarPro device’s VLP low-power mode reduces current demand to less than 100 uA, meaning smaller, lighter batteries can be used for easier portability. The technology’s reliable, non-volatile programming approach enables “instant on” operation, which is ideal for immediate recovery from ‘brown-out’ situations. In addition, the QL1P1000 is immune from Single Event Upsets (SEUs). Finally, since programming of the ViaLink technology does not depend on external memory and cannot be read after programming, design details and security codes embedded in the logic are virtually impossible to reverse engineer, clone or tamper with.
The QL1P1000 device offers the reliability and capacity needed for the most demanding military applications. The reliability is based on a number of factors (such as the fabrication process, design and layout rules, testing of the device, software programming, and the qualification plans and quality assurance procedures). The device also addresses the shock and vibration requirements of military designs by using special packaging to reduce their sensitivity to mechanical stresses. This high-density device is an excellent replacement for ASICs, which are more costly, experience shorter lifecycles and lack flexibility.
