Microsemi to host security forum, present expertise and demonstrate
Microsemi will be participating in Embedded World 2017, where experts will be on hand to discuss the company’s recently introduced cost-optimized lowest power PolarFire FPGA family and demonstrate its Libero SoC PolarFire software, motor control and thermal imaging solutions; LX3301 inductive sensor interface integrated circuit and RISC-V intellectual property core running on an IGLOO2 FPGA device.
The company will also be hosting the Microsemi Security Forum, a one-day, highly informative forum focused on the technology needed to secure critical infrastructure, on Tuesday, March 14 from 9:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
At Embedded World on Wednesday, March 15 from 2-2:30 p.m. Ted Marena, director of SoC FPGA marketing for Microsemi, will share his expertise in a presentation titled, “What is SEU and How to Leverage SEU Immune Devices for Safety Critical Designs.” Marena will also be presenting “Demystifying IEEE 1588 for Industrial Designs” at the tradeshow on Thursday, March 16 from 10-10:30 a.m. Richard Newell, senior principal product architect for Microsemi’s SoC Products Group, will be teaching an Embedded World session titled, “Security-Hardened RISC-V Microprocessors” on March 15 from 10:30-11 a.m. during class 11: The ESCRYPT Class: A Multi-Layered Approach to Embedded Security.
In addition, Microsemi will be hosting an in-booth theater with informative sessions named, “Rethink FPGAs: Microsemi FPGA Forum,” March 14-16 during Embedded World exhibition hours. These sessions will focus on Microsemi’s new mid-range density PolarFire FPGA family, FPGA-based functional safety and the RISC-V soft IP processor core for embedded designs led by Rick O’Connor, executive director of the RISC-V Foundation. PolarFire and RISC-V sessions will also be hosted at the Arrow Electronics booth.
