Part NumberA2F500-DEV-KIT-2

Microsemi's SmartFusion Development Kit offers a full-featured development board so you can try the world's only FPGA with hard ARM Cortex-M3 and programmable analog. The device contains on-chip flash and SRAM memory, as well as additional off-chip memory on the board. The board can communicate via Ethernet and HyperTerminal. The board also contains LEDs, switches, OLED, and extensive analog experimentation, including voltage rail monitoring, current POT, temperature diodes and voltage sweeping using active bipolar prescalers (ABPS). Networking interfaces include Ethernet PHY, EtherCAT, CAN, UART, and RS485. See board details below for more information.


Detailed Description

Microsemi SmartFusion Development Kit (A2F500-DEV-KIT-2)

The kit is supported by Libero SoC, Microsemi's design software that includes SoftConsole Eclipse-based GNU software IDE. You can also use a free evaluation version or full licensed version of either KeilTM or IAR Systems compilers. The quickstart card and the user's guide will walk you through the options for software, downloads, and licensing.

  • Devices On-Board
    • A2F500M3G-FGG484
      • 500,000 System FPGA gates, 512 KB flash memory, 64 KB SRAM, and additional distributed SRAM in the FPGA fabric and external memory controller
      • Peripherals include Ethernet, DMAs, I2Cs, UARTs, timers, ADCs, DACs and additional analog resources
    • Flash Memory, SRAM Memory, and PSRAM
    • EtherCAT ASIC
  • Interfaces
    • Programming connection for program and debug from Microsemi's design tools
    • RVI header for application programming and debug from either Keil or IAR Systems
    • Mixed-signal header for daughter card support
    • USB-to-UART connection to UART_0 for HyperTerminal examples
    • DB9 connector for RS485 UART_1
    • Two DB9 connectors for CAN ports
    • RJ45 connector for 10/100 Ethernet (on-chip MAC and external PHY)
    • Two RJ45 connectors for EtherCAT port connection through soft SPI core in the fabric and external PHY)
    • IGLOO PLUS expansion header for I/O expansion (for routing through the EMC I/Os)
    • A2F500 connector provides access to additional digital I/Os available in the A2F500 device
    • I2C headers
    • SPI headers
    • DirectC header
