M100PF - SoM featuring Microsemi PolarFire FPGA
Low Power Mid-Range FPGA for industrial applicartions
The M100PF SoM family spans from 100K logic elements (LEs) to 300K LEs, features 12.7G transceivers and offers up to 50% lower power than competing mid-range FPGAs. The devices are ideal for a wide range of applications within wireline access networks and cellular infrastructure, defense and commercial aviation markets, as well as industrial automation and IoT markets.
PolarFire FPGAs offer various device features such as design security, low power devices and data security. All PolarFire FPGAs are integrated with multi-protocol industry-leading low-power transceivers.
The M100PF combines most FPGA features on a 74mmx42mm footprint, the board-to-board interconnect is implemented by using two high-quality connectors which expose 360pins. The SoM is available in both the commercial temperature range 0°C...+70°C as well as in the industrial temperature range -40°C....+85°C.
The schematics of the M100PF SoM are available von request.

M100PF- versatile usability at its best
M100PF is of course one of the most flexible System on Module in the embedded market. All PolarFire FPGAs are integrated with multi-protocol industry-leading low-power transceivers
Maximum flexibility for using the SoM with 'exotic' interface requirements. Combining standard IP cores like i.e. display-controller, Ethernet, CAN, serial, I²C, SPI, etc, unique SoM configurations can be used. Benefit from the variety of freely available IP-cores, or, create your own.
Robust and Reliable
High-quality connector suitable for high frequency signals and applications in harsh environments. Use a well designed System on Module with sufficient ressources in terms of performance, interfaces and memory.
M100PFEVP - PolarFire FPGA Evaluation Platform
The M100PFEVP supports a quick start-up of FPGA projects and can easily be used as a fast-prototype platform.
M100PF offers the full flexibility of the PolarFire FPGA family. PolarFire cost-optimized 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. The devices are ideal for a wide range of applications within wireline access networks and cellular infrastructure, defense and commercial aviation markets, as well as industrial automation and IoT Markets.
