Part NumberSF2-DEV-KIT

Microsemi's SmartFusion2 Development Kit offers a full-featured development board for SmartFusion2 System-on-Chip (SoC) FPGAs, which integrate inherently reliable flash-based FPGA fabric, a 166 MHz ARM Cortex-M3 processor, advanced security processing accelerators, DSP blocks, SRAM, eNVM and industry-required high-performance communication interfaces all on a single chip.


Detailed Description

The board contains numerous transceivers to support the built-in Microcontroller Subsystem such as HS USB 2.0 OTG, CAN RS232, RS484, and IEEE1588 time stamping and Sync E capable Triple Speed Ethernet PHY's. The kit will ship with a wall mounted power supply but also has the option to be powered through PoE (Power over Ethernet), includes a 16-bit ADC and has IEEE 1588 Packet Time-stamping capabilities. There is also 512MB of on-board DDR3 memory and SPI Flash to utilize SmartFusion2's memory management system. The SERDES blocks can be access via the PCI Edge Connector or High Speed SMP Connectors.

Kit Capabilities:

    Evaluate the 5G SERDES on SmartFusion2 through the available SMP connectors.
        SmartFusion2 devices provide the highest 5G SERDES densities in the industry.
    Build PCI Express Endpoint applications through the x4 card edge fingers provided on the board.
    Evaluate DDR3 and GPIO performance.
        SmartFusion2 provides the highest General purpose and 3.3V I/Os in the industry.
    Build sub-systems that require:
        1588 Timing Synchronization
        Power over Ethernet
        Industrial Motor Control
        Gigabit Ethernet/10 Gigabit Ethernet switches
        Mixed Signal Power Management
