Low-power, Low-Cost ForgeFPGA

The ForgeFPGA™ family fulfills the design need for relatively small amounts of programmable logic that can be quickly and efficiently designed into cost-sensitive applications. ForgeFPGA devices provide dramatic cost savings versus other alternatives, including non-FPGA designs.

The new FPGAs use the same business model and infrastructure as the popular GreenPAK line: free, easy-to-use software with no license fees, and available worldwide applications support.


Lowest power consumption

  • Half the power of FPGAs on the market
  • Target standby current of <20uA, the lowest on the market
  • Low power allows for use in wide range of applications previously closed to FPGAs

Easy, free software

  • License-free software
  • Software is free to download 
  • Software is easy to use
  • Two development modes
    • “HDL Mode” for  experienced FPGA
    • “Macro-cell Mode” uses schematic-capture-based development flow
    • Users can freely switch modes on-the-fly
  • Fast and easy sample ordering

Competitive price point

  • Lower device cost than competition
  • High level of integration lowers overall system price
  • Allows for use of an FPGA in more targeted applications previously gated by cost
  • Allows for using FPGAs in high-volume consumer applications previously inaccessible to FPGAs due to cost
