Edge compute systems need compact programmable devices with low power consumption and a small enough thermal footprint to eliminate fans and other heat mitigation while providing robust compute horsepower.
Microchip Technology has solved this challenge by cutting static power consumption for its mid-bandwidth field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and FPGA System-on-Chip (SoC) devices in half and giving them the smallest thermal footprint and best performance and compute horsepower compared to alternative devices in their class.
With their ultra-low power consumption, Microchip says its latest low-density PolarFire FPGAs (MPF050T) and PolarFire SoC (MPFS025T) additions exceed the performance/power metrics of any low-density FPGA or SoC FPGA alternatives in the market, with fast FPGA fabric and signal processing capabilities, the most capable transceivers and the industry’s only hardened application class RISC-V architecture-based processor complex with 2 MB of L2 cache and low-power DDR4 (LPDDR4) memory support.
Extending the portfolio with a 25K logic elements multi-core RISC-V SoC and a 50K logic element FPGA opens new application possibilities. They are ideal for low-power smart embedded vision applications and thermally constrained automotive, industrial automation, communications, defence and IoT systems where neither power nor performance can be compromised.
