Integration. Integration. Integration. More and more SoCs from the leading semiconductor manufacturers have just about everything but the kitchen sink in their devices. Some of these options include MCU cores, programmable logic, wired and wireless connectivity, memory controllers and high-performance serial communication interfaces.
While Xilinx and Altera continue to dominate the SoC/FPGA market, MicroSemi continues to launch innovative, niche solutions. The MicroSemi SmartFusion2 SoC FPGA is a popular option combing the necessary processing capabilities with low power and high reliability targeting industrial, military, aviation, communications and medical applications.
Samtec recently partnered with Arrow Electronics on the release of the Arrow-Built SF2+ Development Kit. This kit enables hardware and software engineers to shorten design cycles of SoC FPGA-based designs. Samtec connectors provide I/O expansion from the SoC FPGA and between PCBs.
