Mouser now stocking PolarFire FPFA Video and Imaging Kit from Microsemi


September 6, 2019 – Mouser Electronics, is now stocking the PolarFire FPGA Video and Imaging Kit from Microsemi, a wholly owned subsidiary of Microchip Technology. Incorporating a non-volatile PolarFire field programmable gate array (FPGA), the kit enables high-performance evaluation of 4K image processing and rendering using dual-camera sensors, at 50 percent lower power than other SRAM FPGAs.

The Microsemi PolarFire FPGA Video and Imaging Kit, available from Mouser Electronics, includes a PolarFire Video and Imaging Board with onboard PolarFire FPGA with 300K logic elements, 4 GBytes of DDR4, and 1 GByte of flash memory, plus a dual-camera sensor board. Ideal for mid-bandwidth (4K/2K) imaging and video applications, the kit offers a rich selection of interfaces and IP, including bidirectional MIPI, HDMI, DSI, and SDI.

The kit comes with a complete ecosystem, featuring comprehensive application-specific hardware, optimized intellectual property suite for image processing, sample reference designs, demonstration designs and collateral — providing designers with the hardware and software needed to implement 4K resolution designs targeting PolarFire FPGAs.

The kit also ships with a one-year Libero Gold Software License, which includes the Libero SoC PolarFire Design Suite of comprehensive, easy-to-learn, easy-to-adopt development tools. The suite integrates industry-standard Synopsys Synplify Pro synthesis and Mentor Graphics ModelSim simulation with best-in-class constraints management and unique debug capability featuring the SmartDebug tool suite.

The PolarFire FPGA Video and Imaging Kit supports the development of applications such as drones, robotics, machine vision, thermal imaging, gaming, video surveillance, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), machine learning, and human-machine interfaces (HMI).
