Microsemi Workshops - AVALANCHE 

The Future Electronics AVALANCHE Seminar Series – Featuring Microsemi’s PolarFire FPGA 


Future Electronics launches a series of city workshops promoting their newly released development board AVALANCHE featuring Microsemi’s PolarFire FPGAs

Future Electronics is heating up the market and cooling down the competition with their latest development board! Be part of a growing revolution adopting new technologies to replace the typical platforms.

Join us for this free hands on workshop as Future Electronics introduces Avalanche, a development platform based on the Microsemi PolarFire FPGA technology. Avalanche is the lowest cost development board in the industry promoting Microsemi’s revolutionary mid-range FPGA! It offers the lowest power, lowest cost 10G SERDES based FPGA, smallest form factors, lowest cost DDR4 and high-speed I/O solutions, highest security and SEU immunity.

By attending this workshop, you will experience the easy to use latest software from Microsemi, Libero 2.0 tool flow, explore their debug capabilities, and sample a few of their advanced features. All this will open the doors to an avalanche of creative possibilities.

By attending the FREE Seminar, you will receive a $50 discount coupon to be used for the purchase of the Avalanche board equipped with a FREE 1 YEAR GOLD License Agreement!

There is no cost to attend this seminar
