Actel Corp. has announced the availability of a low-cost starter kit for its Flash-based reprogrammable ProASIC Plus FPGA devices.

Priced at $249, the kit consists of an evaluation board with an APA075 ProASIC Plus device, Actel Libero Gold IDE, low-cost programmer, programming cable, power supply, tutorials, and support documentations.

The starter kit allows users to quickly create a design and program a device. Within the Actel Libero Gold IDE, users can access Model Technology's ModelSim simulation and design verification software, Synplicity's Synplify synthesis software, and Actel's Designer Series place-and-route software. Design can also generate a STAPL file that can be used for programming the kit's evaluation board using the built-in programmer.

The ProASIC Plus Flash-based FPGA family consists of seven devices that offer densities ranging from 75,000 to 1 million system gates. They feature multiple PLLs, support for up to 198kb of two-port embedded SRAM, 712 user-configurable I/Os, and improved ISP.

The devices also feature the company's FlashLock feature, which enable designers to lock the design after programming to prevent unauthorized changes.
