Microsemi: Libero SoC PolarFire v2.0 tool suite available

Microsemi announced the availability of its Libero system-on-chip PolarFire version 2.0 comprehensive design software tool suite, used for the development of the company's lowest power, cost-optimized mid-range PolarFire FPGAs and supporting all PolarFire FPGA family devices and packages.

Microsemi’s Libero SoC PolarFire Design Suite provides a complete design environment for customers working on designs requiring high-speed transceivers and memories with low power consumption. It enables high productivity with its comprehensive, easy to learn, easy to adopt development tools and enables a design launching point for customers with key quick start demonstration designs for rapid evaluation and prototyping. Several full design files for Libero SoC PolarFire targeting the company’s complementary PolarFire Evaluation Kit are also available, including JESD204B Interface, PCI Express Endpoint, 10GBASE-R Ethernet, digital signal processing finite impulse response filter and multi-rate transceiver demonstration, with additional reference designs planned over the coming months.

The enhanced design suite also includes significant runtime improvement for SmartPower, with a 4x speed up of invocation time and almost instantaneous switching between different views. In addition, Libero SoC PolarFire v2.0 introduces a brand new SmartDesign canvas with higher quality, higher speed of displaying nets and easier design navigation.

While Microsemi’s PolarFire FPGAs are ideal for a wide variety of applications within the communications, industrial and aerospace and defense markets, the new software provides new capabilities for high-speed applications, offering particular suitability for access networks, wireless infrastructure, and the defense and industry 4.0 markets. Application examples include wireline access, network edge, wireless heterogeneous networks, wireless backhaul, smart optical modules, video broadcasting, encryption and root of trust, secure wireless communications, radar and electronic warfare, aircraft networking, actuation and control.

With the release of Libero SoC PolarFire v2.0, Microsemi has added support for PolarFire MPF100, MPF200, MPF300 and MPF500 devices for all package options, enabling customers to design with all members of the PolarFire family. It also adds the MPF300TS-FCG484 device to Libero Gold License and introduces the MPF100T device supported by the free Libero Silver License.
