FPGA SoC for RISC-V enters mass production

Microchip has announced production qualification of its PolarFire MPFS250T SoC FPGA supporting the ISA royalty-free RISC-V open standard. Mass production of the MPFS250T, which provides 254,000 logic elements, extends PolarFire’s portfolio of multi-core RISC-V SoC FPGAs, providing an even smaller thermal footprint for low-power smart embedded vision applications. It can also be used in automotive, industrial automation, communication, defense and IoT systems.

Equally important to RISC-V adoption is Microchip’s Mi-V ecosystem, which spans a full variety of IPs, hardware, operating systems, middleware, debuggers, compilers, and services. Design. With more than two dozen partners, the ecosystem enables embedded engineers, software designers, and hardware developers to leverage the benefits of RISC-V ISA and the PolarFire SoC FPGA’s combination of small form factors, d thermal efficiency and low power consumption.

The PolarFire MPFS250T and the previously announced MPFS025T are available for purchase now and are supported by the Libero 2022.1 SoC design suite. Sixteen Mi-V partners will showcase their solutions for PolarFire SoC FPGAs at the Mi-V Virtual Summit, July 20-21, 2022.
