ARIES Embedded, a provider of hardware and software development and standard products for industrial and agricultural sectors, released the M100PF System-on-Module (SoM), based on Microchip’s PolarFire FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) family. Working with the complementary evaluation platform M100PFEVP, ARIES provides a fast and easy project start for its customers. The M100PF board delivers full flexibility of the popular FPGAs for demanding applications in industrial and medical technology.
PolarFire comes out on top with up to 50 percent lower power consumption than competing FPGAs, at mid-range densities with great safety and reliability. Through the SoM, the FPGA functionality is extended with RAM, Flash, Clocking and additional features. Regarding industrial use, the system-on-module allows an expanded temperature range, from 0° to +70 °C up to -40° to +85 °C. Furthermore, the M100PFEVP starter kit includes the M100PVEVP baseboard, M100PF-1DB storage extensions, a 7-inch touchscreen, and power supply.
