The Avalanche Development Kit allows developers to quickly prototype for the lowest power mid-range FPGA platform in the market. At the heart of the kit is a 300k LE (logic element) PolarFire™ non-volatile FPGA from Microchip.

The Avalanche Kit is loaded with several key components including the Panasonic WIFI module PAN9420, Microchip 64Mb of Serial Flash, Alliance 4Gb DDR3 Synchronous DRAM, Microchip VSC8531 Gigabit Ethernet PHY, Embedded FlashPro5, USB2 UART and programming for the PolarFire FPGA. In addition, the board is completed with several Microchip Analog and Power components.

Coupled with the PolarFire FPGA are 3 industry-leading interface standards to enabling engineers to implement virtually any design they can imagine, Sullins Arduino™ compatible shield, mikroBUS™ socket, and Pmod connector/Interface.

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of peripherals that can be connected to the Avalanche Kit.
