Stocks in this article: MSCC









ALISO VIEJO, Calif., May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Microsemi Corporation (Nasdaq: MSCC), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, today announced shipment of production-qualified SmartFusion ®2 system-on-chip (SoC) field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). The company also announced the availability of its full-featured SmartFusion2 development kit with support for mainstream industry interfaces.

Since the SmartFusion2 introduction in October 2012, Microsemi has engaged with over 400 customers worldwide, and the device family has been adopted into numerous customer systems in the communications, industrial and defense markets. Microsemi's lead customer program, coupled with the early availability of SoC development tools and now production-qualified devices and a development kit, enables customers to ramp to manufacturing volumes in a timely manner.

"With scores of active customer engagements, it is gratifying to note that more than 30 percent of these are new customers that have never used Microsemi FPGAs before, validating our strategy to provide differentiated FPGA-based SoCs for the marketplace," said Paul Ekas, vice president of marketing for Microsemi. "Customers seeking to design with mainstream FPGA features, including high-speed SERDES, DDR3 memory controllers and integrated math blocks, can now do so on the industry's lowest power, most secure and SEU-immune SoC FPGA."

"HMS is delighted that SmartFusion2 has gone into volume production. The SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs provide an ideal secure and flash-based programmable system-on-chip platform that addresses our existing customer requirements and tomorrow's expectations," said Staffan Dahlstrӧm, CEO, HMS Networks. "The combination of a non-volatile FPGA that does not require an external boot device and a compact, low-power ARM® Cortex™ M3 processor is ideal for our small form-factor industrial networking systems. Moreover, the built-in security features of these FPGAs will prove to be useful for future customers who are building highly secure versions of these systems. We look forward to continuing the strategic relationship we have with Microsemi and will continue to build on SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs as a key element in our solutions for demanding industrial network applications."
