Novel FPGAs from Cologne Chip
GateMate from Cologne Chip is a FPGA family with components of small to medium density. The company addresses a variety of applications in automation, communication, security, automotive, IoT, lighting, etc.
According to Cologne Chip, the company's GateMate family combines logic density, power consumption and package size with the »lowest cost in the market", making the devices suitable for university projects as well as high volume applications. The chips were not only designed in Germany, but are also manufactured in Germany. Dr. Michael Gude, CEO of Cologne Chip, explains: »I am particularly pleased that we were able to carry out this successful product development in cooperation with Globalfoundries. Our customers benefit from the European-based production at GFs Fab 1 in Dresden. Thus, the risk of trade restrictions or high customs duties is minimized with GateMate FPGA.« Dr. Thomas Morgenstern, SVP and Managing Director GF Dresden, adds: »GateMate is an excellent example of how innovative semiconductor solutions can be designed and manufactured in Europe. The combination of our low-power 28SLP technology with our manufacturing strength in Dresden and the deep design know-how of the Cologne-based development team have resulted in a new FPGA family that will make a difference in the markets it addresses.«
