Microsemi Corporation, a leading provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, today unveiled its IGLOO®2 field programmable gate array (FPGA) family for industrial, commercial aviation, defense, communications and security applications. The non-volatile flash-based IGLOO2 FPGAs have the highest number of mainstream FPGA features including general purpose input/outputs (GPIOs), 5G SERDES interfaces, and PCI Express® endpoints of any similar device on the market today, and feature the industry’s only high-performance memory subsystem.
When compared to other 5G SERDES-based FPGAs under 150K logic elements (LEs), IGLOO2’s high level of integration provides the lowest total system cost versus competitive FPGAs while improving reliability, significantly reducing power and systematically protecting valuable customers’ design IPs.The IGLOO2 FPGA family requires only two power supplies, versus three for competitive devices. Additionally, the non-volatile configuration of IGLOO2 eliminates the requirement for external flash memory, providing the system architect with a higher level of system integration, performance and reliability.
Microsemi has already engaged with lead customers who plan to use IGLOO2 in a broad range of products including industrial controllers, Ethernet switches, FADEC engine controllers, missile systems, and other applications.
