SoM-MPF2 is a System on Module using the powerful, low power and high security PolarFire FPGA from Microsemi. It is based on the MPF300T-1FCG784E  FPGA with a small footprint, low power and high security.  With its relatively low cost, it can be suitable for applications where pricing is important.  But more importantly, the use of Sundance SOMs in your design can remove much complexity from the development and increases the success rate and decreases time to market.  The module is compatible with some SoMs from Trenz and can be used on their SOM carrier card.

PolarFire FPGAs offer design security with transceivers, low power transceiver devices, data security with transceivers, and low power data security with transceiver devices. All PolarFire FPGAs are integrated with multi-protocol industry-leading low-power transceivers. Low power (L) devices provide up to 35% lower static power. Also, data security (S) devices have an integrated DPA safe crypto accelerator. PolarFire Devices are currently offered in Extended Commercial (0ºC to 100ºC) and Industrial (–40ºC to 100ºC) device offerings.

The Libero SoC PolarFire Design Suite delivers a number of many soft IP cores, including a RISC-V processor, Data Security, Ethernet, DES encryption, error detection and correction, and more. This helps kick start many development projects and reduces time to market.
