Microsemi Corp. has revealed that its customer Ultra Communications (UltraComm), a developer of highly compact and robust photonic components for harsh environment applications, has successfully interoperated its X80 Fury transceivers with Microsemi's SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs and IGLOO2 FPGAs. According to the company, the move by UltraComm confirms the robustness of its mainstream SERDES transceivers.

In selecting Microsemi SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs and IGLOO2 FPGAs for this interoperability exercise, UltraComm has achieved the goal of broadening the solution ecosystem for its ruggedised transceivers that maximise component density, performance and I/O functionality to meet the strict requirements of next-generation defence and commercial aviation applications.

Independent interoperability tests by UltraComm have proved the strength of Microsemi's SmartFusion2 and IGLOO2 SERDES for applications that require the highest reliability, lowest power and highest security. These tests demonstrate the value of integrating Microsemi's FPGAs and UltraComm's breakthrough optical module-based transceivers giving developers the ability to increase performance while reducing size, weight and power (SWaP) to achieve lower total cost-of-ownership advantages and deliver unrivalled security and reliability.

Customers in diverse markets can readily take advantage of the unique differentiation Microsemi's FPGA family offers, including the estimated $250 million defence and aviation market segment that can use this class of products.
