Microsemi builds upon its FPGA leadership in defense & aerospace with new release & certification of Core1553BRT and Core1553BRM IPs

Microsemi Corporation, a leading provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, today announced the new release and certification of its Core1553BRT v4.0 and Core1553BRM v4.0 intellectual property (IP) cores. Core1553BRT v4.0 and Core1553BRM v4.0 now support the company's mainstream SmartFusion®2 SoC FPGAs and IGLOO®2 FPGAs and include enhancements for its currently supported FPGA families. Microsemi's Core1553BRT and Core1553BRM provide the highest quality communication bus interface for military, commercial aviation and space applications.

"Microsemi continues to provide aerospace solutions with the highest levels of quality and reliability by achieving certification and qualification not only for our devices, but also for the IP cores that help customers design with these devices," said Minh Nguyen, Microsemi's marketing manager, space and aviation. "The updated Core1553BRT and Core1553BRM solutions enable customers to implement efficient and low resource-utilization data handling interfaces in our latest technology."

Core1553 is based on MIL-STD-1553 supporting various bus protocols such as Remote Terminal (RT), Bus Controller (BC) and Monitor Terminal (MT). The updated cores were certified per the RT Validation Test Plan outlined in MIL-HDBK-1553 Appendix A. The certification was completed on SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs. 

Continued Microsemi Flight Heritage
Microsemi's Core1553 IP has been flown on the SOFIE scientific instrument of the Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere (AIM) mission. Core1553 IP is also onboard the Commercial Orbital Transportation Service (COTS) for the International Space Station (ISS). The company looks forward to having flight heritage for Core1553 IP on many more programs, including the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) and Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS). 

Availability 
Core1553BRT v4.0 and Core1553BRM v4.0 are available now. A SmartFusion2 SoC FPGA reference design and Core1553 Development Kit supporting SmartFusion2 devices will be available in the next quarter.

About SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs
Microsemi's SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs are designed to address fundamental requirements for advanced security, high reliability and low power in critical communications, industrial, defense, aviation and medical applications. SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs integrate inherently reliable flash-based FPGA fabric, a 166 Mega-Hertz (MHz) ARM® Cortex™-M3 processor, advanced security processing accelerators, DSP blocks, SRAM, eNVM and industry-required high-performance communication interfaces with a 5 Gbps transceiver, all on a single chip.

About IGLOO2 FPGAs 
Microsemi's IGLOO2 FPGAs continue the company's focus on addressing the needs of today's cost-optimized FPGA markets by providing a LUT-based fabric, 5G transceivers, high speed GPIO, block RAM, a high-performance memory subsystem, and DSP blocks in a differentiated, cost and power optimized architecture. This next generation IGLOO2 FPGA architecture offers up to five times more logic density and three times more fabric performance than its predecessors and combines a nonvolatile flash-based fabric with the highest number of general purpose I/Os, 5G SERDES interfaces and PCI Express® endpoints when compared to other products in its class. IGLOO2 FPGAs offer best-in-class feature integration coupled with the lowest power, highest reliability and most advanced security in the industry.
