In addition, Microsemi's Libero SoC PolarFire Design Suite has been updated with version 1.1 Service Pack 1 enabling design starts for the broad customer base, together with key quick start demonstration designs for rapid evaluation and prototyping.
Microsemi's PolarFire FPGA ES devices, which feature 12.7G transceivers and offer up to 50 percent lower power than competing mid-range FPGAs, have shipped to early access program (EAP) customers since February and are now available for all customers.
The FPGA product family is for a wide range of applications within wireline access networks and cellular infrastructure, defense and commercial aviation markets, as well as industry 4.0 which includes the industrial automation and Internet of Things (IoT) markets.
"The release of the evaluation kit allows customers to port complex designs and test out advanced features—including 12 Gbps package protocols, high-speed DDR3/4 memory interfaces and general purpose input/outputs (IOs)—as well as complex signal and waveform processing, all in the industry's lowest power, cost-optimized midrange FPGA."said Shakeel Peera, senior director of SoC product marketing, at Microsemi.
Multiple demo reference designs are available now with full design files for Libero SoC PolarFire targeting the PolarFire Evaluation Kit, including JESD204B Interface, PCI Express (PCIe) Endpoint, 10GBASE-R Ethernet Loopback, DSP FIR Filter and Multi-Rate Transceiver Demo, with additional reference designs planned over the coming months.
Microsemi's PolarFire Evaluation Kit is a comprehensive platform for evaluating the company's recently introduced PolarFire FPGAs and is well-suited for high-speed transceiver evaluation, 10Gb Ethernet, IEEE™ 1588, JESD204B, Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) and CPRI.
The solution is also ideal for a wide variety of end markets and applications, including communications (high-speed transceiver evaluation, full-duplex 12.7 Gbps SerDes channel testing, SyncE and 1588 applications, and dual Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 solutions), industrial (PCIe edge testing, and SyncE and 1588 applications), and aerospace and defense (encryption and root-of-trust, secure wireless communications applications, aircraft networking, and actuation and control).
The kit features a high-pin-count FPGA mezzanine card (FMC), numerous surface mount assemblies (SMAs), PCIe, dual Gigabit Ethernet RJ45, small form-factor pluggable (SFP) modules, DDR4 and USB.
Offering additional design support for customers, Microsemi's Libero SoC PolarFire Design Suite provides high productivity with its comprehensive, easy to learn, easy to adopt development tools for designing with Microsemi's PolarFire FPGAs.
The suite includes a complete design flow with Synopsys SynplifyPro synthesis and Mentor Graphics ModelSim mixed-language simulation with best-in-class constraints management, as well as Microsemi's differentiated FPGA debugging suite, SmartDebug.
The SmartDebug tool enables hardware debugging using the in-built dedicated signal probe and offers advantages including live on-chip debugging, eliminating extra FPGA resources, reduced FPGA design debug cycles and enabling read-write capability to LEs and memory blocks.
The release of v1.1 SP1 includes faster run time, DDR3 support, and support for advanced 10 Gbps transceiver based protocols, as well as IBIS Algorithmic Modeling Interface (AMI) models for advanced simulation of signal integrity.
