The Microsemi IGLOO families, which include IGLOO/e, IGLOO nano, and IGLOO PLUS devices, are reprogrammable, full-featured flash FPGAs designed to meet the demanding power and area requirements of today's portable and power-conscious electronics. Based on Microsemi's nonvolatile flash technology and single-chip ProASIC®3/E FPGA architecture, the 1.2 V / 1.5 V operating voltage family offers the industry's lowest power consumption, smallest footprint, and competitive prices.
The IGLOO families support up to 3 million system gates with up to 504 kbits of true dual-port SRAM, up to six embedded PLLs, and up to 620 user I/Os. Low power applications that require 32-bit processing can use the ARM® Cortex™-M1 processor without license fee or royalties in M1-enabled IGLOO devices. Developed specifically for implementation in FPGAs, Cortex-M1 offers an optimal balance between performance and size to minimize power consumption.
The highly configurable Cortex-M1 processor operates at up to 72 MHz in Microsemi's flash-based, low-power IGLOO FPGAs. Providing a good balance between size and speed for embedded applications, the core can be implemented in as few as 4300 tiles, roughly 20 percent of an M1AGL1000 IGLOO device. The free delivery of the Cortex-M1 processor for use in Microsemi's M1-enabled FPGAs provides system designers programmable flexibility and system-level integration, enabling the development of low-cost, high-performance systems. Microsemi will support the Cortex-M1 processor with its CoreConsole IP Deployment Platform, its SoftConsole program development environment, and Actel Libero IDE – all available for free download from the Microsemi SoC Product's Group website.
