SmartFusion intelligent mixed signal FPGAs are the only devices that integrate an FPGA, ARM® Cortex™-M3, and programmable analog, offering full customization, IP protection, and ease-of-use. Based on Microsemi's proprietary flash process, SmartFusion FPGAs are ideal for hardware and embedded designers who need a true system-on-chip (SoC) solution that gives more flexibility than traditional fixed-function microcontrollers—without the excessive cost of soft processor cores on traditional FPGAs.
When faced with options for co-processing or interface customization, SmartFusion devices offer a compelling solution in a wide variety of applications, including motor control, system and power management and industrial automation. These applications span the industrial, military, medical, telecommunications, computing and storage markets.
The SmartFusion family is supported by Libero® Integrated Design Environment (IDE), Microsemi's comprehensive software toolset for designing with all Microsemi FPGAs.
Libero IDE includes industry-leading synthesis, simulation and debug tools from Synopsys and Mentor Graphics as well as innovative timing and power optimization and analysis. For embedded designers, Microsmei offers free SoftConsole Eclipse-based IDE with GNU, as well as, evaluation versions of software from Keil™ and IAR Systems®. Full versions are available from the respective suppliers. Micrium supports SmartFusion devices with their new real-time operating system (RTOS) µC/OS-III, TCP/IP stack and µC/Probe products.
