Microchip – SmartFusion Family

Product Overview

SmartFusion® System on Chip (SoC) FPGAs are the only devices that integrate an FPGA fabric, ARM Cortex-M3 Processor, and programmable analog circuitry, offering the benefits of full customization and IP protection, while still being easy to use.

Based on a proprietary flash process, SmartFusion SoC FPGAs are ideal for hardware and embedded designers who need a true system-on-chip (SoC) solution that gives more flexibility than traditional fixed-function microcontrollers without the excessive cost of soft processor cores on traditional FPGAs.
SmartFusion SoC FPGAs provide you with:

Full Design Customisability.

– Create a product with exactly the features you need
– Innovate and differentiate for a competitive edge
– Incorporate last-minute changes with an on-chip FPGA fabric
– Future-proof your design with in-application programming (IAP) capability for field upgrades
– Experiment with hardware acceleration for select algorithms in FPGA fabric

Intellectual Property (IP) Protection

– Inherent flash FPGA IP security with a complete SoC
– Snoop-free interface between microcontroller and FPGA
– High design security since no bitstream download is required at power-up
– Secure in-system programming (ISP) with 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) via JTAG
– FlashLock ® to prevent FPGA contents from being read back
– Protection against overbuilding with customer programmable device key

Ease-of-Use Increases Productivity

– A single platform for your entire line of products
– Libero SoC integrated design environment for both FPGA and embedded designers
– Simple GUI-based configuration of complex programmable analog
– Industry leading compile and debug from Keil™, IAR Systems® and GNU
