A revolutionary concept in engineer-programmable gate arrays has been announced by Xilinx Inc, San Jose with the XC 3090, a 9,000-gate programmable array. The company reckons the new array can cut nine months off the time to bring a new product to market, because instead of the design being masked on the array at the final production step, teh engineer is able to program – and reprogram – the design into the finished array. Engineers can control every function not governed by memory and microprocessor chips.
