PolarFire Evaluation Kit

Microsemi's PolarFire Evaluation Kit offers high-performance evaluation across a broad class of applications.

This kit is ideally suited for high-speed transceiver evaluation, 10Gb Ethernet, IEEE1588, JESD204B, SyncE, SATA and more. The kit connections include a high pin count (HPC) FPGA mezzanine card (FMC), numerous SMAs, PCIe, Dual Gigabit Ethernet RJ45, SFP+ and USB. A 300K logic element (LE) PolarFire FPGA with DDR4, DDR3 and SPI-flash allow a broad class of high-performance designs to be developed.
