Mid-range FPGAs deliver 300K LE and SerDes performance

PolarFire field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) from Microsemi are in stock at Mouser Electronics. The flash-based, mid-range FPGAs deliver 300K logic elements at up to 50% lower power consumption than equivalent SRAM-based FPGAs. The devices offer excellent security, single event upset (SEU)-immune fabric, and serializer/deserializer (SerDes) performance for a variety of applications in the communications, defence, aviation, industrial automation, and Internet of Things (IoT) markets.

The FPGAs provide cost-effective bandwidth processing capabilities for the increasing number of converged 10 Gpbs ports with the lowest power footprint.

They integrate the non-volatile FPGA fabric, 12.7Gbps transceiver performance, 1.6Gbps differential inputs and outputs (I/Os), hardened security IP, and a cryptographic processor.

The 28 nm CMOS silicon features power optimisation combined with the lowest static power for mid-range density FPGAs, while the Flash*Freeze mode yields even lower standby power.

Mouser also stocks the Microsemi PolarFire evaluation kit, designed to help engineers evaluate a broad class of applications such as high-speed transceiver evaluation, 10Gb Ethernet, IEEE1588, JESD204B, SyncE, and SATA.

The kit connections include a high-pin-count FPGA mezzanine card (FMC), six SMAs, PCIe edge connector, Dual Gigabit Ethernet connectors, SFP+ cage, and USB-to-UART terminal.

It ships with a one-year Gold Software License, which includes the Libero SoC PolarFire Design Suite of comprehensive, easy-to-learn, easy-to-adopt development tools.

The suite integrates industry-standard Synopsys Synplify Pro synthesis and Mentor Graphics ModelSim simulation.
