Microchip's PolarFire FPGAs

Lowest Power, Cost-Optimized, Mid-Range FPGAs

Microchip's PolarFire FPGAs (formerly Microsemi), deliver the industry’s lowest power at mid-range densities with exceptional security and reliability. The product family spans from 100K logic elements (LEs) to 500K LEs, features 12.7G transceivers and offers up to 50% lower power than competing mid-range FPGAs. The devices are ideal for a wide range of applications within wireline access networks and cellular infrastructure, defense and commercial aviation markets, as well as industrial automation and IoT markets.
