Microchip Technology announced the second development tool offering in its Smart Embedded Visioninitiative for designers using its PolarFire® RISC-V System on Chip (SoC) FPGA. Microchip’s Smart Embedded Vision development platform joins the company’s previously announced VectorBlox™ software development kit (SDK) and IP for using the PolarFire devices to program a trained neural network without prior FPGA expertise. The latest offering simplifies edge-compute solution development in the thermally challenging environments of the IIoT and factory automation applications. It supports dual 4K MIPI CSI-2 cameras, HDMI® 2.0 with expansion based on the FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC); CoaXPress® 2.0, SDI (6 Gbps and 12 Gbps), Universal Serial 10 GE Media Independent Interface (USXGMII) MAC IP with auto-negotiation, and USB 3.1 Gen 1 and Gen 2 protocols. It enables Wi-Fi®/Bluetooth®, USB 2.0, SD Card, Embedded MultiMediaCard (eMMC), fully integrated PCIe® endpoint and root port functionality configured for four lanes, and a mikroBUS™ connector that can be used with Microchip’s Trust&GO platform for secure cloud connectivity.
