Semiconductors dev FPGA kit PolarFire

MICROCHIP TECHNOLOGY RT PolarFire development kit has combined with flight-ready RT PolarFire FPGA and interfaces for evaluating design concepts based on actual in-flight electrical and mechanical characteristics. Developers using FPGAs to meet satellite system payload and throughput requirements can speed designs by prototyping with space-qualified devices rather than commercial off-the-shelf silicon. Dev kit supports various daughter boards and includes two fully populated high-pin count (HPC) FPGA mezzanine card connectors, DDR3 DIMM and RT Gigabit Ethernet connection, SPI flash memory, and SubMiniature Version A (SMA) connectors. Also included is radiation data and the Libero software tool suite for programming the RT PolarFire FPGA.
