Microsemi introduced the IGLOO2 FPGA Evaluation Kit. The low-cost kit is a PCI Express (PCIe) compliant form factor evaluation platform. The IGLOO2 FPGA Evaluation Kit is available now for an introductory price of $99 (for the first 1,000 orders). The kit includes Microsemi’s Libero SoC Gold Software License for designing with Microsemi FPGAs and SoC FPGAs.
Microsemi launched their IGLOO2 field programmable gate array family. The new FPGA devices are ideal for industrial, commercial aviation, defense, communications and security applications. Pricing for IGLOO2 starts at less than $7 for high volume orders. The M2GL050 is shipping in volume production now with subsequent device configurations rolling out throughout 2013 and early 2014. IGLOO2 FPGAs will be available in extended temperature offerings of up to 125 degrees centigrade temperature junction.
