Microsemi has teamed up with Digi-Key Electronics, a global electronic components distributor, to provide the SmartFusion2 System-on-Chip (SoC) Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) maker board exclusively to Digi-Key’s global customer base. This low-cost evaluation platform lowers the barrier for hardware and firmware engineers to develop embedded applications for the ARM Cortex-M3 and 12K logic elements (LE) FPGA fabric in the SmartFusion2 device. Contents include the new SmartFusion2 board, a USB cable to provide power, programming and communication, and a QuickStart Guide.
This device family offers more resources in low-density FPGAs all while delivering the lowest power, proven security and single event upset (SEU) FPGA configuration immunity.
The key features of the SmartFusion2-010 SoC FPGA are an ARM Cortex-M3 processor, GigE MAC, USB OTG, built in DDR2/3 controller, numerous other peripherals, 12K FPGA LEs and the highest levels of security to protect customers’ IP. The board also features a 1000BASE-T PHY and connector, two unpopulated interfaces for the ESP32 and the ESP8266 (not included), USB connectivity and more.
The board itself is ideal to prototype applications such as internet of things gateway, medical instruments, handheld industrial/test products, motor control, secure connectivity designs, etc.
