Where Mixed Signal and Programmable Logic Meet

In order to allow engineers to quickly prototype a complete system composed of a microprocessor core, programmable logic and analog blocks, the kit is built around a 1.5M gate M1AFS1500-FGG484 Fusion device. The well-equipped kit also includes the Libero(R) Integrated Development Environment (IDE), SoftConsole, a 5V power supply and full current measurement capability of independent I/O banks and V(CC) for accurate power analysis. The kit is fully RoHS compliant.

Additional contents found in this kit:

    --  Programming support of the Fusion device and debug with SoftConsole
    --  512 Kbytes of SRAM
    --  2 Mbytes of SPI Flash
    --  OLED 96x16 display
    --  USB cables
    --  Full 10/100 Ethernet interface
    --  Design examples
