Microsemi – Splash Kit supports development with the PolarFire mid-range FPGA


Microsemi’s PolarFireTM FPGA Splash Kit is a development board which provides general-purpose interfaces for evaluation and development using the PolarFire family of mid-range FPGAs.

The kit’s connections include an RJ45 interface for Gigabit Ethernet, PCIe and LPC FMC interfaces. The main board features an MPF300TS-1FCG484EES PolarFire FPGA with 300,000 Logic Elements (LEs), as well as on- board DDR4 DRAM and SPI Flash memories.

The kit is supplied with a 12V power pack and AC adaptor, a USB2.0 A male-to-Mini-B adaptor, a QuickStart Card, and one year’s free licence for the Libero Gold design software.

The PolarFire family of FPGAs is available in versions with from 100,000 Logic Elements (LEs) to 500,000 LEs. The FPGAs feature 12.7Gbits/s transceivers, and consume as much as 50% less power than competing mid- range FPGAs.
