Future Electronics Now Carries Microchip’s New PolarFire FPGA Imaging and Video Kit

Summary: Future Electronics now offers its customers Microchip’s new PolarFire FPGA imaging and video kit. 

Montreal, Canada – March 27, 2019 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Microchip’s new PolarFire FPGA imaging and video development kit.

The new PolarFire FPGA imaging and video solution from Microchip Technology Inc. delivers the high-performance computing, memory and connectivity resources that today’s designers require for a wide variety of imaging and video applications.

“Our PolarFire imaging and video offering serves as a one-stop solution to enable the evaluation of multiple imaging protocols and the development of high-resolution image and video processing applications in thermal, power and space constrained environments,” said Shakeel Peera, vice president of marketing for the FPGA business unit at Microchip’s Microsemi subsidiary.

PolarFire FPGAs achieve high-resolution imaging with rich, vivid detail capabilities that support resolution as high as 4K in small, low-power form factors. These FPGAs are ideal for mid-bandwidth (4K/2K) imaging/video applications due to their rich memory and Digital Signal Processor (DSP) resources in addition to offering up to 50 percent lower power than competing Static Random-Access Memory (SRAM)-based devices.

The PolarFire imaging and video solution includes dedicated hardware to enable evaluation of multiple imaging and video protocols on PolarFire FPGAs. The development kit, optimized intellectual property suite, sample reference designs, demonstration designs and collateral are also included as part of the solution’s complete ecosystem, along with a free one-year gold license to the Libero® SoC Design Suite, Microchip’s comprehensive development tool.

“The kit will also enable a flexible development platform that’s easy to test and design, especially when developing custom intellectual property for applications like stereo video, which have scarce customizable development platforms today,” Peera said.

Future Electronics Offers Low-Power, High-Precision Operational Amplifiers from Microchip

Montreal, Canada – April 19, 2018 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Microchip’s MCP6031 operational amplifier and Photodiode PICtail™ Plus Demo Board.

Future Electronics customers will benefit from the high accuracy and extended battery life delivered by these operational amplifiers. Microchip’s low-power Complementary Metal–Oxide–Semiconductor (CMOS) technology and implementation of non-volatile memory for in-package trimming enable the MCP6031/2/3/4 amplifiers’ extremely low offset. This minimizes error, especially at higher gains.

Additionally, with an operating voltage range of 1.8V to 5.5V, the amplifiers can run off of two 1.5V battery cells with full battery utilization. Their low power consumption extends battery life, and their rail-to-rail input/output structure enables greater dynamic range and better performance across the entire operating-voltage range.

The MCP6031 Photodiode PICtail™ Plus Demo Board is also available from Future Electronics. It supports the Microchip MCP6031 high precision op amp, and uses a transimpedance amplifier as a sensor conditioning circuit, and a PIN photodiode (PNZ334) as a light detector. It also features test points for connecting lab equipment.

Microchip’s MCP6031 operational amplifier and Photodiode PICtail™ Plus Demo Board are available now from Future Electronics. For more information and to watch a video about this product, click here.
