Aeroflex Colorado Springs, a division of Aeroflex Incorporated, a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announce prototype availability of their UT699E and UT700 LEON 3FT-based mi croprocessors.
Next gener at i on LEON f ami l y products, the LEON UT699E and UT700, migrated from 250nm CMOS to 130nm CMOS process technology. The UT699E is pin-to-pin compatible with the UT699. Software developed for the UT699 is 100 percent compatible with the UT699E and UT700.
The 166 MHz UT700 is a derivative of the UT699E that has a more powerful Reed Soloman EDAC scheme, SPI port, as well as a 1553 interface to support the bus controller/remote terminal monitor functions. Reed Solomon EDAC provides fault-tolerant protection for external SDRAM. The UT700 has a slightly different pinout, but is offered in the same packages as the UT699/699E.
Both devices have a seven-stage pipelined, high-performance, fault-tolerant SPARC V8/LEON 3FT CPU and a compliant 2.0 AMBA bus interface that integrates the LEON 3FT CPU with SpaceWire, Ethernet, memory controller, 32-bit 33MHz PCI, CANbus, and programmable interrupt peripherals.
“Aeroflex’s customers have been pleased with the UT699 microprocessor,” said Anthony Jordan, Director, Standard Products. “Our plan to satisfy customer’s requests and grow the family included adding 1553, SDRAM fault-tolerant protection, and SPI, etc. We kept the same packages, the 484-CLGA and CBGA per customer requirements.”
Future pl ans are to update the UT699 Power Cal cul ator f or the UT699E/700 and a LEON Expandabl e Appl i cati on Pl atf orm (LEAP) Board earl y i n 2014.
“ The new LEON mi croprocessors j oi n A er of l ex’ s f ami l y of over 140 st andar d products,” conti nued Jordan.
“ We have a hi story of provi di ng our customers the products they need Dat abus, T r anscei ver s, L V DS,
SpaceW i r e, M emor i es, M SI L ogi c. We conti nue devel opi ng an assured, worl d cl ass, and secure hi gh-reliability
processor family based on A er of l ex Gai sl er I P at A er of l ex.”
The SMD number 5962-13237 has been assigned to the UT699E, while the UT700 SMD number is 596213238.
Pricing is $20,500.00 with QML screening in lots of 100 for the UT699E; the UT700 is $21,600.
