About this course

Microchip PolarFire® FPGAs offer the industry’s lowest-power FPGA fabric and 12.7G transceivers and the smallest footprint packaging at mid-range FPGA densities, enabling high performance in small, power-constrained applications.  This class will include an overview of the PolarFire® FPGA family, describe how to estimate and verify the power consumption of a design and introduce techniques to reduce power consumption. Following the lecture, the instructor will demonstrate how to use the power estimation tools to estimate the power requirements of a low power transceiver design using the Microchip power analysis tools, and measure the power on a Microchip development kit.
