Solar Express 50 (SE50)

miniPCIe IO and processing module based on Microsemi PolarFire MPF300T-1FCVG484 FPGA

The SE50 Mini PCIe card is a small form factor board used to implement the PCI Express interface to expand embedded PC I/O. The card size is 30mm wide by 50.95mm long. The Minicard standard defines a 52-pin card edge connector. The card is based on PolarFire MPF300T-1FCVG484E from Microchip. It provides additional processing power, GPIOs as well as high speed transceivers to the host. SE50 has x1 GEN2 PCIe interface as an End Point and JTAG for programming and development. SE50 included 4GB of DDR4 memory and can optionally be fitted with lower cost MPF100 and 200 in the same package.


  • MPF300T-1FCVG484E PolarFire FPGA from Microchip (can also use PMF100 and 200 in the same package);
  • Two 1024×16 DDR4 chips for RAM (4GB of DDR4);
  • PCIe x1 Gen2 as EP;
  • Samtec SS4-30-3.00-L-D-K I/O connector for GPIOs and tranceivers.
  • 1.27mm headers for interfacing to JTAG signals;
  • LEDs for power good;
  • Two Green user LEDs;
  • Temperature range, 0°C to +100°C
