Microsemi and Solectrix partners on FPGA-based DSP SoM

April 13, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Microsemi partnered with embedded systems service provider Solectrix to develop a low power, secure and ultra-compact DSP System-on-Module (SoM) based on its SmartFusion 2 SoC FPGA.

The board now available from Solectrix under the SXoM-SF2 name, packs the SmartFusion2 SoC FPGA with 4Gb of DDR3 SDRAM in a 55x30mm footprint. It functions as a modular system core for high performance DSP applications and uses a carrier board with a PCIe interface to enable high-speed streaming of processed data to the host (PCIe streaming server). Users can leverage the SXoM-SF2 module for their own design and benefit from Microsemi’s SmartFusion2 SoC FPGA, which combine a flash-based FPGA fabric featuring 56K logic elements (LEs), 72 DSP blocks, with an ARM Cortex-M3 hard processor system running at 166MHz.
Solectrix offers a high definition serial digital interface (HD-SDI) to PCIe base board to help demonstrate its SXoM-SF2’s capabilities for customers. This board set can capture HD video and perform audio extraction, scaling, etc. Customers looking to leverage the device for their specific applications can purchase the SOM for a single power conversion system (PCS
