FPGAs address rising complexity of MIPI-based vision
Today’s embedded vision system designers must address a number of market trends. For example, current designs feature an ever-rising number of sensors to collect higher levels of data or perform new functions. Take the average automobile as an example, and it's here that FPGAs can play a key role.

System-on-module integrates multi-core RISC-V SoC FPGA
ARIES Embedded has announced that it will present their new System-on-Module (SoM) M100PFS at Embedded World 2020, stand 441 in hall 3A from February 25th to 27th, 2020. The M100PFS SoM is based on the PolarFire SoC, the System-on-Chip (SoC) FPGA family from Microchip that combines a high-performance 64-bit RISC-V multicore processor subsystem with low-power FPGA technology.
Low-power radiation-tolerant FPGA for high-bandwidth space systems
Microchip has announced the RT PolarFire FPGA that is optimised to meet the most demanding requirements in spacecraft payload systems’ high-speed data paths with the lowest possible power consumption and heat generation. Microchip has extended its RT FPGA offering to bring these capabilities to emerging high-performance space applications.
FPGA module with dual board-mount optical assemblies
VadaTech, a manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, has announced the FMC259, an FPGA Mezzanine Module per VITA 57.4 (FMC+) specification with dual Board-Mount Optical Assemblies, each providing 24 channel full-duplex transceivers capable of up to 28.1 Gb/s per channel (more than 1344Gb/s total bi-directional).
How to migrate custom logic from an FPGA to MCUs
Just like a CPLD or FPGA, CLB is composed of programmable logic primitives that can be configured in many ways to implement custom blocks of logic. Instead of using VHDL or Verilog to configure these logic primitives, CLB is programmed with a GUI-based SysConfig tool and function calls. Since the configuration method is different, the CLB is technically not a CPLD or FPGA, but it can be used to achieve identical results.
FPGA board facilitates large buffer sizes
VadaTech has announced the AMC573, which utilises the Xilinx XCZU28DR RFSoC and is compliant to AMC.1, AMC.2, AMC.3 and AMC.4 specifications. It has an onboard, re-configurable FPGA which interfaces directly to the AMC FCLKA, TCLKA-D. The module has two banks of 64-bit wide DDR4 memory with ECC (16 GB in total). This allows for large buffer sizes to be stored during processing as well as for queueing the data to the host.
FPGA platform enables low power edge applications
Lattice Semiconductor has announced its new low power FPGA platform, Lattice Nexus. The platform is architected to deliver power-efficient performance that will benefit developers of a wide range of applications, including AI for IoT, video, hardware security, embedded vision, 5G infrastructure and industrial/automotive automation.
