High-speed protocol IP can drop in to FPGAs from Microsemi

June 04, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Microsemi and Sibridge Technologies have collaborated to develop a portfolio of interface IP for deployment on Microsemi’s SmartFusion2 and IGLOO2 FPGAs

Microsemi endorses Sibridge Technologies as CompanionCore provider; Microsemi has previously collaborated with the company by using its triple-speed Ethernet media access controller (MAC), USB2.0 OTG controller, as well as PCI Express IP and verification IP suites, for Microsemi’s SmartFusion2 and IGLOO2 FPGA families. Sibridge Technologies is now working to add support for USB3.0 host and device controller, 10 Gigabit Ethernet MAC, SATA Gen 1/2 host and device controllers, CAN2.0 network controller, and eMMC host controller for Microsemi FPGAs as part of Microsemi’s CompanionCore program.

This extends Microsemi’s prior engagement with Sibridge Technologies, adding Sibridge as an approved CompanionCore provider. The CompanionCore program offers a wide selection of synthesisable IP cores that are licensed, supported and maintained directly by Microsemi partners. Microsemi comments, “Sibridge Technologies enables our customers to develop high-speed interface designs by providing and integrating IP cores in designs and verifying multiple instances in a timely and cost-effective manner.”
