Actel PolarFire SoC

PolarFire SoC

The PolarFire SoC FPGA family delivers an unparalleled combination of low power consumption, thermal efficiency and defense grade security for smart, connected system.

It's the first system on chip (SoC) field-programmable gate array (FPGA) with a deterministic, coherent RISC-V CPU cluster and a deterministic L2 memory subsystem enabling Linux and real-time applications.

Built on the award-winning, mid-range, low power PolarFire FPGA Architecture, PolarFire SoC devices deliver up to 50% lower power than alternative FPGAs, span from 25k to 460k logic elements (LEs) and feature 12.7G transceivers.

Here are some key features and details about the Actel PolarFire SoC:

  1. FPGA Fabric: The PolarFire SoC combines FPGA fabric with a hard-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor subsystem. This combination allows users to integrate custom hardware accelerators with a powerful ARM-based processing system on a single chip.

  2. ARM Cortex-A53: The PolarFire SoC incorporates ARM's Cortex-A53, a 64-bit multicore processor that is commonly used in various embedded applications, including industrial control, communications, and more.

  3. Low Power: One of the notable features of PolarFire SoC is its focus on low power consumption. It is designed to be used in applications where power efficiency is critical.

  4. Security: The PolarFire SoC includes security features such as a Secure Boot capability and tamper-resistant features to enhance the security of embedded systems.

  5. Variants: The PolarFire SoC comes in different variants with varying FPGA sizes and processor configurations, allowing users to choose the right level of processing power and FPGA resources for their specific application needs.

  6. Applications: It is suitable for a wide range of applications, including aerospace and defense, automotive, communication infrastructure, industrial automation, and more. Its versatility makes it a compelling choice for applications that require both processing power and FPGA customization.
