Actel's ProASIC3 Solutions Offer Low-power Operation and Protect Valuable
Intellectual Property for Portable Patient Monitoring Systems
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Demonstrating the success of its low-power and power-efficient programmable technologies, Actel Corporation today announced that Mindray Medical International Limited (NYSE: MR), China's leading developer and manufacturer of medical devices, has chosen Actel's flash-based ProASIC3 field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) for implementation in its portable patient monitoring systems. Selected for the low-power, enhanced security, performance, and firm-error immunity it offers, the 60,000-gate ProASIC3 A3P060 is being deployed to provide the highest possible levels of secure patient data management.
Following the successful deployment of Actel's ProASIC3, Mindray plans to continue to leverage Actel flash-based FPGAs in next-generation products, including other patient monitoring devices, diagnostic laboratory instruments and ultrasound imaging systems. Actel expects that IGLOO, its award-winning, low-power, flash-based FPGA, will be implemented in Mindray's next product release. Mindray also plans to incorporate Actel's ARM processor-enabled, flash-based FPGAs into their medical devices.
"This partnership helps advance our portable patient monitor line by
bringing us the reliable low-power and security functionalities needed to
eliminate power surges and errors associated with SRAM-based solutions,"
said Mr. Li Yao, Mindray's manager of R&D. "Actel's flash-based solutions,
such as the [A3P060] ProASIC3, have leading power, security and radiation
resistance capabilities that far exceed alternative FPGA technol
