IGLOO Device Family Overview
1- 2
Flash Advantages
Low Power
Flash-based IGLOO devices exhibit power characteristics similar to those of an ASIC, making them
an ideal choice for power-sensitive applications. IGLOO devices have only a very limited power-on
current surge and no high-current transition period, both of which occur on many FPGAs.
IGLOO devices also have low dynamic power consumption to further maximize power savings;
power is even further reduced by the use of a 1.2 V core voltage.
Low dynamic power consumption, combined with low static power consumption and Flash*Freeze
technology, gives the IGLOO device the lowest total system power offered by any FPGA.
The nonvolatile, flash-based IGLOO devices do not require a boot PROM, so there is no vulnerable
external bitstream that can be easily copied. IGLOO devices incorporate FlashLock, which provides a
unique combination of reprogrammability and design security without external overhead,
advantages that only an FPGA with nonvolatile flash programming can offer.
IGLOO devices utilize a 128-bit flash-based lock and a separate AES key to secure programmed
intellectual property and configuration data. In addition, all FlashROM data in IGLOO devices can
be encrypted prior to loading, using the industry-leading AES-128 (FIPS192) bit block cipher
encryption standard. AES was adopted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology
(NIST) in 2000 and replaces the 1977 DES standard. IGLOO devices have a built-in AES decryption
engine and a flash-based AES key that make them the most comprehensive programmable logic
device security solution available today. IGLOO devices with AES-based security allow for secure,
remote field updates over public networks such as the Internet, and ensure that valuable IP
remains out of the hands of system overbuilders, system cloners, and IP thieves. The contents of a
programmed IGLOO device cannot be read back, although secure design verification is possible.
Security, built into the FPGA fabric, is an inherent component of the IGLOO family. The flash cells
are located beneath seven metal layers, and many device design and layout techniques have been
used to make invasive attacks extremely difficult. The IGLOO family, with FlashLock and AES
security, is unique in being highly resistant to both invasive and noninvasive attacks. Your valuable
IP is protected and secure, making remote ISP possible. An IGLOO device provides the most
impenetrable security for programmable logic designs.
Single Chip
Flash-based FPGAs store their configuration information in on-chip flash cells. Once programmed,
the configuration data is an inherent part of the FPGA structure, and no external configuration
data needs to be loaded at system power-up (unlike SRAM-based FPGAs). Therefore, flash-based
IGLOO FPGAs do not require system configuration components such as EEPROMs or
microcontrollers to load device configuration data. This reduces bill-of-materials costs and PCB
area, and increases security and system reliability.
Live at Power-Up
The Actel flash-based IGLOO devices support Level 0 of the LAPU classification standard. This
feature helps in system component initialization, execution of critical tasks before the processor
wakes up, setup and configuration of memory blocks, clock generation, and bus activity
management. The LAPU feature of flash-based IGLOO devices greatly simplifies total system design
and reduces total system cost, often eliminating the need for CPLDs and clock generation PLLs. In
addition, glitches and brownouts in system power will not corrupt the IGLOO device's flash
configuration, and unlike SRAM-based FPGAs, the device will not have to be reloaded when system
power is restored. This enables the reduction or complete removal of the configuration PROM,
expensive voltage monitor, brownout detection, and clock generator devices from the PCB design.
Flash-based IGLOO devices simplify total system design and reduce cost and design risk while
increasing system reliability and improving system initialization time.
IGLOO flash FPGAs allow the user to quickly enter and exit Flash*Freeze mode. This is done almost
instantly (within 1 µs) and the device retains configuration and data in registers and RAM. Unlike
SRAM-based FPGAs the device does not need to reload configuration and design state from
