Evaluation kit puts components to the test

Electronic components distributor Mouser Electronics has announced it is now offering the PolarFire Evaluation Kit from Microsemi (www.mouser.com/new/microsemi/microsemi-polarfire-evaluation-kit), which allows designers to evaluate the PolarFire FPGA product family. The flash-based PolarFire field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) deliver 100K to 500K logic elements at up to 50 per cent lower power consumption than equivalent SRAM-based FPGAs, as well as best-in-class security and reliability.

The Microsemi PolarFire Evaluation Kit provides a robust hardware design platform based on a 300K logic element PolarFire FPGA with DDR4, DDR3 and SPI-flash memory. The onboard FPGA integrates reliable non-volatile FPGA fabric, 12.7 Gbps transceivers, 1.6 Gbps inputs and outputs (I/Os), best-in-class-performance, hardened security IP, and crypto processors.

The silicon features power optimisation with the lowest static power for mid-range FPGAs, while the Flash*Freeze mode yields best-in-class standby power.

Included with the evaluation kit are SMA connectors for testing the transceiver channel, high pin count FPGA mezzanine card, x4 PCIe edge connector, dual Gigabit Ethernet connectors, and programming using an on-board embedded FlashPro5 programmer. The kit provides high-performance evaluation for a variety of applications, such as industrial automation, cellular infrastructure, security, imaging and video, and USB.

In adition, the kit also ships with a one-year Libero 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 with best-in-class constraints management and debug capabilities.
