Microchip’s Mi-V ecosystem has enabled customers to ramp products based on PolarFire® devices more quickly, from prototypes to production.
The first SoC Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) to support the royalty-free RISC-V open Instruction Set Architecture (ISA) has entered volume production, marking a major milestone in the evolution of embedded processors. As customers continue to adopt PolarFire® SoC FPGAs at a rapid pace, Microchip Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MCHP) announces the production qualification for the MPFS250T and the previously announced MPFS025T. Microchip also announces that its Mi-V ecosystem continues to streamline RISC-V adoption while enabling a new class of smaller, more power-efficient and less-costly industrial, IoT and other edge-compute products.
“We now have a large funnel of customers who have designed in the PolarFire SoC family with our suite of Mi-V tools and solutions,” said Shakeel Peera, vice president of marketing for Microchip’s FPGA business unit. “These customers have developed innovative products that bring best-in-class solutions to market with superior thermal and power efficiency, as well as unprecedented compute capability in small form factors. We are now writing a new chapter in the history of RISC-V with the availability of production-qualified SoC PolarFire devices.”
