Electronica Azi & Microchip PolarFire SoC Discovery Kit

Win a Microchip PolarFire SoC Discovery Kit (MPFS-DISCO-KIT) from Electronica Azi and if you don’t win, receive a 15% off coupon for this kit, plus free shipping.

The PolarFire SoC Discovery Kit features a quad-core, RISC-V application-class processor that supports Linux® and real-time applications, a rich set of peripherals and 95K of low-power, high-performance FPGA logic elements. This full-featured, yet low-cost kit allows rapid testing of application concepts, developing firmware applications, programming and debugging user code. 

The Discovery Kit is built around the PolarFire MPFS095T SoC FPGA that features an embedded microprocessor subsystem consisting of a quad-core, 64-bit CPU cluster based on the RISC-V Instruction Set Architecture (ISA).  A large L2 memory subsystem can be configured for performance or deterministic operation and supports an asymmetric multi-processing (AMP) mode.

The board includes support for Microchip’s Mi-V ecosystem, a MikroBUS™ expansion header for Click Boards™ and a 40-pin Raspberry Pi® connector, as well as a MIPI video connector. The expansion boards can be controlled using protocols like I2C and SPI. One GB of DDR4 memory is available as well as a microSD® card slot for booting Linux. Communication interfaces include one Gigabit Ethernet connector and three UART connections via the USB type C connector. An on-board FlashPro5 programmer is available to program and debug the PolarFIre FPGA through USB-to-JTAG channel.

  • Using high-precision architectures enables superior DC performance, regardless of operating conditions
  • Low noise and additional EMI filtering on the inputs provide additional protection in electrically noisy environments
  • Small packages, such as leadless DFNs, are ideal for space-constrained designs
  • A wide operating temperature range of –40°C to +125°C provides a robust solution even at extreme temperatures

Microchip Instrumentation Amplifier with mCAL Technology

The MCP6N11 and MCP6V2x Wheatstone Bridge Reference Design demonstrates the performance of Microchip's MCP6N11 instrumentation amplifier (INA) and a traditional three op amp INA using Microchip's MCP6V26 and MCP6V27 auto-zeroed op amps. The input signal comes from an RTD temperature sensor in a Wheatstone bridge. Real world interference is added to the bridge's output, to provide realistic performance comparisons. Data is gathered and displayed on a PC, for ease of use. The USB PIC® microcontroller and included Graphical User Interface (GUI) provides the means to configure the board and collect sample data.
