These comprehensive IPMC and Carrier IPMC solutions based on Pigeon Point's field-proven IPMC offerings and the SmartFusion intelligent mixed signal FPGA accelerate customer design cycles and enable designers to concentrate on differentiating their ATCA board products (including those with AMC slots) instead of expending internal effort meeting management requirements for xTCA™ specification compliance.
In a separate release:
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Pigeon Point Systems (PPS), an Actel company (Nasdaq: ACTL), today announced a new Module Management Controller (MMC) Board Management Reference (BMR) Starter Kit based on Actel's SmartFusion™ intelligent mixed signal FPGAs. SmartFusion is the only device that integrates an FPGA, hard ARM® Cortex™-M3-based microcontroller subsystem (MSS) and programmable analog.
