Actel Fusion Advanced Development Kit

The Actel Fusion Advanced Development Kit enables the development of system and power management applications in a single board with multiple on-board voltage regulators, an array of indicator LEDs, and an OLED display to provide direct feedback on flag status, system messages, and voltage, temperature, or current readings. The kit offers designers targeting Fusion mixed-signal FPGAs with a robust hardware platform for rapid development and quick time-to-market of designs requiring system or power management. The Fusion Advanced Development Kit (M1AFS-ADV-DEV-KIT-PWR) with two 9 V power packs is now available for US $720.
