SmartFusion embedded Boards

The SmartFusion® and SmartFusion®2 family by Microsemi® combines the classical benefits of FPGA with equally flexibly configurable analog circuits and one of the most popular embedded processors, the ARM® Cortex®-M3, in one chip. SmartFusion® FPGA are ideal for hardware and software developers who need a real system in chip solution which is more flexible than a microcontroller-FPGA combination or the use of a softcore in the FPGA.
