There are a few out there, very few, but none of them are available in appr
opriate packages and inexpensive.
I've found a couple of Chinese startups that seem to have some interesting
devices. AGM has the AG6K, a 6k LUT with 250 MHz ARM in a QFP100, pretty m
uch the perfect part. Trouble is I can't tell if this company is real. Or
maybe they are targeting customers buying millions with nothing to offer t
he smaller users.
Another is by Gowin. They actually make several. They have options for ex
tra memory along with an ARM CPU and 2 or 4 kLUTs. But they fall down on t
he packaging. They offer a 48QFN and a couple of other larger packages, bu
t nothing suitable. They use the 88QFN and 100QFP, but not for the ARM ver
sion. They even have a version with a Bluetooth stack, but for some reason
that uses an ARC processor (not that it's a problem) and still comes up ve
ry short in the packaging/IO count. Gowin seems a bit more real, but still
hard to find anyone selling their product line.
The docs from both companies are not so easy to glean info from. I guess t
hat goes with the territory of start ups.
So close and yet so far...
