ARM Cortex-M3-based SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs

Speaker: Luca Cattaneo, Microsemi

Microsemi's solutions offering for Embedded Systems Design has been recently extended with the introduction of the SmartFusion2 device family. SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs are designed to address fundamental requirements for advanced security, high reliability and low power in critical industrial, defense, aviation, communications and medical applications. SmartFusion2 integrates inherently reliable flash-based FPGA fabric, a 166 MHz ARM Cortex-M3 processor, advanced security processing accelerators, DSP blocks, SRAM, eNVM and industry-required high-performance communication interfaces all on a single chip. An additional industry unique feature “Flash*Freeze” allows further reduction in power consumption from mW downto uW range. High efficiency within the application is achieved by leveraging the embedded microprocessor sub-system  Cortex-M3 based, and the design specific flexibility introduced in the FPGA side.
