SoM-MPF1 FPGA module with Microsemi MPF500 or MPF300 FPGA in -1FCG1152 package


SoM-MPF1 is a System on Module using the powerful, low power and high security PolarFire FPGA from Microsemi. It is based on the MPF500-1FCG1152 (or MPF300) FPGA with a small footprint, low power, high security, ample processing resources and  many hard core IPs like JESD204B, RISC etc.  With its relatively low cost it can be suitable for application where cost is important. The module is compatible with some SoMs from Trenz
