Future Electronics Announces Launch of Microsemi’s Lowest Power and Cost-Optimized PolarFire FPGAs

Montreal, Canada – February 15, 2017 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has announced the launch of Microsemi’s new mid-range PolarFire field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).

The new PolarFire FPGAs from Microsemi offer the industry’s lowest power at mid-range densities and provide a cost-optimized FPGA product family targeted for access networks, wireless infrastructure, defense, commercial aviation and industry 4.0 markets.

Offering up to 50 percent lower power than competing mid-range FPGAs,  Microsemi’s PolarFire FPGAs deliver 500K logic elements (LEs) and 12.7 Gbps Serializer/Deserializer (SerDes) transceivers with class-leading small form factors and high security.

Microsemi has been delivering programmable logic for over 28 years.
With the introduction of PolarFire FPGAs, Microsemi is now a broad line FPGA supplier with the ablity to support devices from 1K to 500K LEs.  Its IGLOO™, ProAsic3, IGLOO2, SmartFusion™2 and PolarFire FPGAs deliver industry-leading power efficiency, security and reliability, all with instant-on and non-volatile technologies.

“Future Electronics’ engineering customers are continually finding great success utilizing our IGLOO2 and SmartFusion2-based Creative Board for Microsemi’s FPGAs. The new PolarFire family’s unbelievably low power consumption — even with the transceiver operating at 12.7 Gpbs data rates — and powerful Libero SoC PolarFire design tool represent a massively disruptive technology in the mid-range density FPGA market.  PolarFire FPGAs open the door for engineers to utilize Microsemi’s highly differentiated FPGA technology in more applications than ever before,” explained Todd Baker, Corporate VP of Engineering for Future Electronics.

Baker continued, “Future Electronics is proud to collaborate with Microsemi in bringing the PolarFire FPGA launch to our broad customer base and I have no doubt that design engineers are going to find tremendous value in this cost-optimized, low power, mid-range density FPGA family.”

Future Electronics Releases etech ALERT About Microsemi’s Ocelot Industrial IoT Ethernet Switch ICs

Montreal, Canada – December 16, 2016 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components founded in 1968 by Robert Miller, recently released an etech ALERT featuring the Ocelot Industrial IoT Ethernet Switch ICs from Microsemi.

Globally, networks are undergoing a massive transition. For most networks, this means a migration to packet-based Ethernet. Originally conceived for use in Local Area Networks (LANs), Ethernet is the dominant networking technology for today’s IP traffic in carrier and enterprise networks. Ethernet is also increasingly the common denominator in a myriad of other networking applications such as industrial process control, smart grid energy distribution, intelligent transportation, automotive, storage and more.

Microsemi offers a wide portfolio of Ethernet products including Ethernet Switches: Enterprise, Industrial and Carrier; Ethernet PHYs: 10GbE Fiber, 10Gb OTN, GbE/FE Multirate Copper and Fiber; Software: Device Drivers, Application Software and Board Support Packages; Signal Integrity: Signal Conditioners and Crosspoint Switches; Timing: SyncE and 1588 PLLs; and Power over Ethernet (PoE) solutions.

Microsemi recently introduced the Ocelot family of Ethernet switch ICs for the Industrial IoT market. The introduction of this product adds a low-cost, 4-10 port GE / 2.5GE switch family to their overall portfolio. Top applications for the Ocelot family include: Industrial Automation, Smart Grid, Physical Security, Process Control and Intelligent Transportation Systems. In addition, Microsemi offers IStaX Linux application software to enable turnkey Industrial Ethernet managed switch solutions. IStaX is highly integrated with advanced L2 switch features such as QCLs and ACLs, and includes support for synchronization functions such as Synchronous Ethernet, IEEE 1588 and linear and ring protection functions.

Future Electronics to exhibit interactive secure wireless access control board demonstration at Electronica 2016

Egham, UK, 19 September 2016 – Future Electronics, founded in 1968 by company president Robert Miller and now a world-class leader and innovator in the distribution and marketing of electronics components, today announced that visitors to Electronica (Munich, 8-11 November 2016) will be able to view and interact with demonstrations of the latest security, cloud connectivity and power technologies for Industry 4.0 at the company’s stand A4.259.

Future Electronics’ stand will feature pods showing technologies grouped into three themes: Experience Security, Experience Power and Experience the Cloud. The ‘Experience Security’ pod will show a live demonstration of Future Electronics’ own Secure Wireless Access Control evaluation board. This board features triple-pass authentication, using a fingerprint reader, an encrypted NFC tag and a numeric keypad for entering a user’s PIN code.

At Electronica, visitors will be able to meet specialist Future Electronics engineers who can show how to quickly configure the three security features of the board, and explain the way it passes or rejects attempts to gain access and displays the results on the board’s integrated LCD screen.

Based on an NXP Semiconductors LPC43S57 microcontroller, A70CM secure authentication IC, CLRC66302HN multi-protocol NFC front end and PCA8885 eight-channel capacitive touch/proximity sensor, the board was developed at a Future Electronics System Design Centre. Security technology engineers from Future Electronics will be able to explain to visitors to Electronica the steps to integrate this kind of security functionality into their product designs.

In addition, stand A4.259 will feature a new, low-cost Future Electronics-developed Microsemi Creative Board, which enables evaluation of a low-power FPGA for safety-critical applications. This board is a flexible system development platform for users of Microsemi’s Igloo 2 and SmartFusion 2 FPGAs, and features connectors for Arduino™, MikroBUS™ and PMOD™ extension boards. It enables designers to rapidly implement a complete prototype system around a Microsemi FPGA and develop a proof of concept.

Future Electronics will be making 40 Microsemi Creative Boards available exclusively free to qualified engineers who apply at Future Electronics’ stand at Electronica.

The stand’s Experience Power pod will exhibit wireless charging, silicon carbide and Power-over-Ethernet products from ROHM Semiconductor, Microsemi and Semtech, as well as Vicor’s highly efficient two-stage (1.8kW AC in/5V DC out) power supply design.

The Experience Connectivity pod features application development platforms for Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth® Low Energy and LoRa™ wireless technologies from STMicroelectronics, Cypress Semiconductor and Microchip. All will be connected to Future Electronics’ cloud infrastructure to demonstrate ‘chip to cloud’ communication.

Paul Donaldson, Vertical Segment Director of Future Electronics (EMEA), said: ‘Visitors who want a practical demonstration of the technologies that underlie the vision of Industry 4.0 and the broader IoT, and who want hands-on advice on the best ways to implement them, should take the time to meet the segment specialists from Future Electronics and to view the developer-ready demonstration boards on show at Future Electronics’ stand.’

For more information before the start of Electronica about the technology demonstrations which will be on view at Future Electronics’ stand, visitors should contact info@my-ftm.com.
