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 Releases Video Showcasing Microchip’s Latest MCUs for IoT

Montreal, Canada – August 15, 2018 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has released a video showcasing the latest MCUs for IoT from Microchip Technology.

The SAM L10 and L11 families from Microchip are the industry’s first 32-bit MCU with chip-level robust security features and ARM TrustZone. They are based on the latest Arm® Cortex®-M23 core, and were created to address the growing need for IoT connected security.

The SAM L11 features Arm TrustZone®, a programmable environment that provides hardware isolation between certified libraries, IP and application code, as well as an on-board cryptographic module supporting Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), Galois Counter Mode (GCM) and Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA).

The secure boot and secure key storage with tamper detection capabilities establish a hardware root of trust, and it includes a secure bootloader for secure firmware upgrades.

Both MCU families also deliver the industry’s lowest power consumption. The SAM L10 received a ULPMark™ score of 405, which is over 200 percent better performance than the nearest competitor.
