It utilizes Kilopass Technology's patented 2T antifuse
bitcell with proven security that is critical for secure code storage applications.
Microsemi's Axcelerator FPGAs are the commercial equivalent of Microsemi's space-flight RTAX-S/SL FPGAs and share the same CMOS structures, antifuse
technology, materials, processing, dimensions and programming attributes.

The probing capability associated with antifuse
FPGAs is related to the need to select any of the antifuses
The scalability of our antifuse
technology and the flexibility of our design architecture enable us to quickly bring XPM to market to fill the needs of early adopters of advanced technology nodes.
Microsemi is committed to the longevity of our products and is pleased Avnet has exclusive rights to distribute our ACT 1, ACT 2 and ACT 3 antifuse
devices, which have experienced more than two decades of success serving the market with their unique capabilities, said Andrew Girardi, senior director of business operations at Microsemi.
The company said that it now stocks IGLOO and SmartFusion FPGAs for industrial and consumer applications, as well as antifuse
devices for high-reliability, defence and aerospace customers.
Today, designers can use FPGAs based on any of three very different technologies: SRAM, flash and antifuse
Kilopass was the first to pioneer antifuse
technology, which is used to permanently program integrated circuits (ICs) in a standard CMOS process without extra mask steps.
Access to complex programmable PLL IP (400-1600 MHz) and temperature sensor,- Access to memory type libraries antifuse
RAM SPREG type REPMB for different capacities,- Access to a sign-off kit including environment-placement and routing type checking DRC, ANT, LVS, etc.
will support Kilopass' one-time programmable (OTP) antifuse
memory, XPM[TM], in its foundry business' advanced logic processes.
technology Kilopass pioneered supports a ROM conversion without increasing the bitcell area.
