ARIES Embedded Expands System-on-Modules Product Range with First RISC-V Based FPGA Module
Fuerstenfeldbruck, Germany, June 8, 2021 – ARIES Embedded, a specialist in embedded services and products, has started volume production of the powerful and efficient M100PFS System-on-Module (SoM). The platform is based on Microchip’s PolarFire® System-on-Chip (SoC) FPGA family, the high-performance 64-bit RISC-V quad-core processor subsystem with low-power FPGA technology. “The M100PFS is now fully available and we have already supplied the first customer projects with it,” explained Andreas Widder, Managing Director of ARIES Embedded. “In addition to general availability, we have added significantly to the range of functions. The module features its IP reference design, a customized zero-stage bootloader, U-Boot as a generic bootloader, Linux with Yocto support, and Hart Software Services (HSS).” The embedded board impresses with its low power consumption, very good efficiency and high system security in a variety of different use cases. It is ideal for applications such as safety-related systems and artificial intelligence, where a high-performance, secure and energy-efficient computer architecture is to be combined with an FPGA. Its wide range includes applications such as smart embedded vision, industrial automation with robotics, telecommunications and industrial Internet of Things (IIOT).
