MARCH 14--Silicon Recognition (Petaluma, CA; www.silirec.com), a supplier of ultrafast devices for pattern recognition, has chosen to implement a version of its zero-instruction-set-computing (ZISC) solution within the Actel Corporation (Sunnyvale, CA; www.actel.com) A500K050 and A500K130 flash-based field-programmable-gate-array (FPGA) devices. Silicon Recognition's ZISC solution, a proprietary application-specific integrated circuit, is designed to provide the ultrafast pattern recognition, information classification, and matching performance required for next-generation, real-time smart devices, such as security cameras and health-monitoring equipment.

"The performance and security features of Actel's ProASIC FPGAs enable us to safely and easily embed our intellectual property into their A500K050 and A500K130 solutions. This benefit translates well to our customers, who are developing smart and efficient systems for image, sound, or signal processing on the smallest form factor possible," said Guy Paillet, chairman and founder at Silicon Recognition.
