By offering more flexibility in the combinations of logic functions that can be achieved, the configurable logic allows design flexibility, reduced inventory cost and faster qualification in customer’s applications. The dual configurable logic devices combine two or more different functions in a single package, separately configurable, hence offering readily-available glue logic.
At the heart of the Big I.D.E.A. (International Design Engineering Award) challenge, sponsored by NXP and Mouser, is the Dual PCB Configurable Logic product line together with products from other NXP Business Units, including smart analog, load switches, protection and filtering, small signal MOSFETs, small signal diodes, and other devices on the same evaluation board.
The Big Idea will launch worldwide January 1, 2015 with huge cash and merchandise awards for the most creative design using all the NXP products together in one application solution.
The contest will entail engineers navigating from the sign-up process, through an on-line schematic tool, to working with a demo board in the final submission. Prizes are awarded at the conclusion of every stage of the contest, so more engineers can qualify, regardless of how far they go in the contest.
