New BeagleV single board computer utilizes Microchip's PolarFire SoC

BeagleBoard.org announced the BeagleV-Fire, which combines the powerful capabilities of Microchip's PolarFire MPFS025T FCVG484E 5-core RISC-V system-on-chip (SoC).

BeagleV opens up new opportunities to explore the vast potential of RISC-V architecture and FPGA technology.

With its compact form factor, high performance, and versatile I/O interfaces, the BeagleV-Fire SBC is well suited for a variety of applications including Internet of Things (IoT) devices, robotics, AI, and embedded systems. Key features and specifications of the BeagleV-Fire SBC:

1. RISC-V CPU: quad-core 64-bit RV64GC application processor and 1x 64-bit RV64IMAC monitor core with performance of 3.125 CoreMarks/MHz and 1.714 DMIPS/MHz.
2. FPGA (FPGA) die: 23k logic elements (4-input LUT + DFF), 68 math blocks (18×18 MACC) and 4 SerDes lines at 12.7 Gbps (line rate).
3. Memory: 2GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 16GB of Kingston eMMC memory, 128Mbit SPI flash memory and microSD card slot.
4. Networking capabilities: Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi via M.2 Key E connector.
5. Connectivity options: USB Type-C, Ethernet and M.2 connector for 2.4GHz/5GHz Wi-Fi modules.

The board features high-speed SYZYGY and CSI connectors and is compatible with BeagleBone Cape add-on modules to expand its modular capabilities.

The single-board computer, which uses open source hardware principles, allows for customizable design and firmware. It comes with Ubuntu OS for Linux compatibility and ease of use.
