Flash & Anti-fuse FPGAs
The ProASIC3/E families of Flash FPGAs offer a breakthrough
in price, performance, density, and features for today's most
demanding applications. The ProASIC3/E families are based on
nonvolatile Flash technology and support between 30 k to 3 M
gates and up to 616 high performance I/Os.
Fusion Programmable System Chip
The Actel Fusion Programmable System Chip (PSC) is the world's
first mixed-signal FPGA, integrating configurable analog, large
Flash memory blocks, comprehensive clock generation and management
circuitry, and high performance programmable logic in a monolithic
Module - CoreMP7
Actel's CoreMP7 is a soft IP version of the popular ARM7TDMI-S™

and ASIC Design
HDL Designer Series delivers solutions that optimise the design
creation, synthesis and verification processes of advanced ASIC
and FPGA designs. Ideal for team design. http://www.mentor.com/products/fpga_pld/hdl_design/hdl_designer_series/index.cfm
Analysis and Verification
HyperLynx tools eliminate signal integrity, crosstalk, and EMC
problems early, allowing you to "get it right first time."
Expedition PCB addresses your greatest design challenges including
differential pair routing, net tuning, manufacturing optimization,
flex circuits and microvia and build-up technology.
TeamPCB™ allows multiple designers to simultaneously work
on the same PCB layout design. For PCB designs that are too
large or complex to complete in the desired time frame. TeamPCB
enables collaboration across geographically dispersed or functionally
organized PCB design groups, to maximize productivity and dramatically
shorten design times.
