FPGA-based system-on-a-chip for motor control and medical electronics introduced by Microsemi SoC



MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., 31 Aug. 2011. The Microsemi Corp. SoC Group in Mountain View, Calif., is introducing its A2F060 cost-optimized SmartFusion customizable system-on-chip (cSoC) device for high-volume applications such as motor and motion control, gaming machines, and solar inverters, as well as clinical and imaging medical electronics. The A2F060, which is based on field-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology, is available in commercial- and industrial-temperature grades.

The A2F060 has 60,000 system gates, a hard 100 MHz 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3-based microcontroller with 128 kilobytes of embedded flash memory and 16 Kbytes of embedded SRAM, and programmable analog including one analog-to-digital converter, one digital-to-analog converter, and two comparators.

The chip's microcontroller has 100 MHz, 125 DMIPS throughput; dedicated external memory controller; and two SPI, UART, and 32-bit timers. Its programmable analog has two clock conditioning circuits and one integrated analog PLL with phase shift, multiply/divide, and delay capabilities; and input frequency range from 1.5 to 350 MHz. Its FPGA fabric has 350 MHz system performance, can create additional standard interfaces or proprietary interfaces using high speed FPGA I/Os and gates, and as many as 107 user I/Os including FPGA, microcontroller GPIO and analog I/Os.
