Today, many applications require low-power programmable logic solutions. For this reason, many programmable logic vendors have focused on minimizing device power consumption. Of these vendors, several claim low-power superiority. However, only one can be the true leader. In this paper, the power consumption of six competitive programmable logic devices is compared via published vendor datasheets, power-estimation tools, and real silicon measurements. In the end, this paper will prove that Actel's flash-based IGLOO FPGAs are the undisputed low-power leaders in the industry, regardless of logic density, design configuration, or power mode.
