Using the IGLOO2 High-Performance Memory Subsystem in Innovative Bridging Applications White Paper
White Paper Abstract:
Microsemi IGLOO2 devices include an innovative High-Performance Memory Subsystem (HSMS) that provides dedicated functions (like DDR Controllers, embedded non-volatile and SRAM memory, DMA and an efficient AHB Matrix) to speed common system operations typical of innovative bridging applications. When the advanced features of the HSMS are combined with a wealth of FPGA fabric (including advanced DSP and embedded memory blocks), and up to 16 lanes of multi-protocol SerDes, impressive external bandwidth can be matched with extensive internal data-processing and data-management capabilities. This allows even the most bandwidth hungry bridging applications to run continually at full speed while keeping power, cost and board space within even the stingiest of budgets. This white paper will demonstrate the needs and requirements of systems with advanced bridging functions to directly illustrate the advantages of IGLOO2 devices in these types of applications.
