PolarFire FPGAs from Microsemi
15 November 2017, Electronics Technology

Microsemi unveiled the cost-optimised PolarFire field programmable gate array (FPGA) product family, delivering what the firm claimed

as the industry’s lowest power at mid-range densities with 12,7 Gbps serialiser/deserialiser (SerDes) transceivers as well as best-in-class security and reliability. The FPGA product family is ideal for a wide range of applications within wireline access networks and cellular infrastructure, defence and commercial aviation markets, as well as Industry 4.0 which includes the industrial automation and Internet of Things (IoT) markets.

PolarFire FPGAs provide cost-effective bandwidth processing capabilities for the increasing number of converged 10 Gpbs ports with a low power footprint. They also address the market’s growing concerns over tangible cybersecurity threats as well as reliability concerns that face deep submicron SRAM-based FPGAs as they relate to single event upsets (SEUs) in their configuration memory.

PolarFire also provides inherent immunity to configuration SEUs. Additional features to aid with reliability include built-in single error correction and double error detection (SECDED) as well as memory interleaving on large static random access memory (LSRAMs), and system controller suspend mode for safety critical designs.

Leveraging Microsemi’s expertise in security, the FPGAs offer Cryptography Research Incorporated (CRI) patented differential power analysis (DPA) bitstream protection, integrated physically unclonable function (PUF), 56 KB of secure embedded non-volatile memory (eNVM), built-in tamper detectors and countermeasures, true random number generators, integrated Athena TeraFire EXP5200B Crypto Co-processors (Suite B capable) and a CRI DPA countermeasures pass-through licence.
