PolarFire FPGAs

PolarFire cost-optimised FPGAs deliver the lowest power at mid-range densities with 12.7 Gbps SerDes transceivers as well as best-in-class security and reliability. They offer unprecedented capabilities and value with 10G transceivers, advanced I/Os, security and DSP capabilities while maintaining all the advantages traditionally associated with non-volatile FPGAs such as static power, security and single event upset (SEU) immunity.

PolarFire FPGAs are ideal for a wide range of applications within wireline access networks and cellular infrastructure, defence and commercial aviation markets, as well as industrial automation and IoT markets.

Get started with your design today by downloading the Libero SoC PolarFire Design Suite and ordering a PolarFire development kit that best matches your needs.

Cost-Optimised Architecture

  • Architecture and process optimisations for 100K/500K LE devices
  • Transceiver performance optimised for 12.7 Gbps, which yields smaller size
  • 1.6 Gbps I/Os supporting DDR4/DDR3/LPDDR3, LVDS – hardened I/O gearing logic with CDR (supports SGMII/GbE links on GPIOs)
  • Best-in-class high-performance, hardened security IP in mid-range devices

Power Optimisation

  • The lowest static power—1/10 static power vs. competing devices
  • Transceiver optimised for 12.7 Gbps, which yields 1/2 the power vs. competing devices
  • Integrated hard IP—DDR PHY, PCIe endpoint/root port, crypto processor
  • Total power (static and dynamic)—up to 50% lower power

Radiation-Tolerant (RT) PolarFire FPGA Achieves QML Class Q Qualification

The RT PolarFire FPGA family brings Microchip’s 60 years of space flight heritage to a product line that delivers the necessary computing and connectivity throughput for modern space missions. These FPGAs consume up to 50 percent less power than SRAM-based alternatives while enabling on-orbit data processing systems to meet demanding performance requirements and reliable operation without excessive heat generation in the harsh radiation environment of space. Low-power and reprogrammable RT PolarFire FPGAs offer expanded logic density and high performance, providing significant improvements in signal processing throughput and reducing satellite signal processing congestion.
