MathStar Inc. has released its new Field Programmable Object Array (FPOA) for customer demonstration that offers deterministic clock (up to 1GHz), low recurring costs, off-the shelf programmability, and no-mask costs.

According to the company, FPOAs offer a phenomenal solution to companies struggling with the high development costs of ASICs and the performance limitations of conventional FPGA architectures.

The first two products in the FPOA product line are supported by a complete development tool suite based on SystemC and by a development environment that customers can use to implement their algorithms. The first FPOA devices have 400 1GHz Silicon Objects, resulting in a device with 400 Giga Operations of performance.

Based on MathStar's proprietary Silicon Object technology, the FPOA chips are designed for use in a wide variety of high performance networking and digital signal processing applications.

The MathStar development platform, including tools, board, and parts is already available for demonstration. General customer availability is scheduled for Q3, and pricing depends on device type and volume.
