QuickLogic Unveils PolarPro QL1P1000 with Military Temperature Rating

Underscoring its commitment to the military market, QuickLogic(R) Corporation (NASDAQ:QUIK), the lowest power programmable solutions leader, announced that the QL1P1000, 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.

“We have a long history with the military industry in the areas of flight controls, avionics, missile systems, navigation systems, smart munitions and military communications systems. Our military customers value our technology, and many of them have requested parts with a million gate density that are rated for the full -55° to +125°C mil-spec temperature range,” said Brian Faith, QuickLogic’s Vice President, Solution Marketing. “With the PolarPro QL1P1000, we have delivered.”

The underlying, proprietary ViaLink(R) technology used in the QL1P1000 device offers some 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). Lastly, 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 that QuickLogic paid special attention to in the development of this device such as the fabrication process, design and layout rules, testing of the device, software programming and the qualification plans and quality assurance procedures. This 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.
