MathStar Inc. announced Version 2.0 of the FPOA Design Tools and projected shipment dates for its Field Programmable Object Array (FPOA) device. Version 2.0 of the design tools includes new releases of the FPOA Connection and Assignment Tool (COAST Version 2.0) and Visual Elite version 2005.1 from Summit Design. These tools allow customers to design, simulate and debug applications targeted for the FPOA. The FPOA is scheduled to ship to customers in September 2006. This shipment date reflects a tape-out date of June 2006.

"Version 2.0 of the FPOA Design Tools is important for MathStar's early customers," said MathStar COO Dan Sweeney. "These customers can get a jump start on their application design ahead of receiving actual silicon. The simulator in the FPOA Design Tools is built around cycle-accurate SystemC models and supports full-chip simulation."

FPOAs are reprogrammable ICs based on proprietary Silicon Object technology. According to MathStar, the FPOA can process logic functions at a clock rate up to 1GHz. MathStar's flagship product, the MOA1400D FPOA suits DSP and filtering applications in the machine vision, video processing, medical imaging and military/aerospace markets. FPOAs are currently available and supported by a range of development tools, libraries, application notes and technical documentation.
