Kit for getting started with secure FPGA design

Avnet has updated its design software offering for Microsemi’s SmartFusion2 KickStart development kit to offer a data security demonstration.

Microsemi PUF

The kit, sold exclusively through Avnet, is an entry-level development platform designed to facilitate prototyping using Microsemi’s SmartFusion2 system-on-chip FPGAs.

The development board integrates a single event upset (SEU)-immune SmartFusion2 SoC FPGA, a secure and integrated programmable device with 10,000 logic elements and a 166MHz ARM Cortex-M3 processor.

A Windows app is used to control and view the steps to establish a secure Bluetooth Low Energy connection between a SmartFusion2 “server” and an Android “client.”
