eeNews Embedded Article: Take PolarFire FPGA And RISC-V, Just Add Linux And Your New Development Platform Is Ready

As a developer, you are facing a constant battle with power levels, security and reliability. To overcome these issues, Microchip technology is offering you a new platform based on the PolarFire FPGA architecture in combination with the a microprocessor subsystem based on the royalty-free RISC-V Instruction Set Architecture. The new SoC platform, together 2 MB L2 memory subsystem (configurable as cache, scratchpad or direct access memory) will allow developers to create real-time Linux embedded applications.
You can evaluate and begin designing with PolarFire SoC today using the Antmicro Renode system modelling platform, which is now integrated with Microchip’s SoftConsole integrated design environment (IDE) for embedded designs targeting PolarFire SoCs. A PolarFire SoC development kit is also available now, consisting of the PolarFire FPGA-enabled HiFive Unleashed Expansion Board and SiFive‘s HiFive Unleashed Development Board with its RISC-V microprocessor subsystem.
