An antifuse is an electrically programmable two-terminal device with small area and low parasitic resistance and capacitance. Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) using antifuses in a segmented channel routing architecture now offer the digital logic capabilities of an 8000-gate conventional gate array and system speeds of 40-60 MHz. A brief survey of antifuse technologies is provided. the antifuse technology, routing architecture, logic module, design automation, programming, testing and use of ACT antifuse FPGAs are described. Some inherent tradeoffs involving the antifuse characteristics, routing architecture and logic module are illustrated
