This is an Actel SmartFusion Development Kit. It features many interfaces and has an ARM Cortex-M3 Hardcore included, in addition to that it has an ACE (Analogue Computing Engine) in order to perform analog measurements.

Type Actel Smart Fusion Schematic Description
V1.0 Actel Smart Fusion Dev-Kit Actel Smart Fusion Dev-Kit Schematic PDF Development Kit with ARM cortex M3 and Analog components
V1.0 Smart Fusion Mixed Signal Header Converter Smart Fusion Mixed Signal Header Converters Schematic PDF Convertes the Mixed Signal header to more practical and known Connectors. It can be used for the Actel SmartFusion Dev-Kit but also the Actel SmartFusion Eval-Kit

This Converter needs to be connected inversed (Connectors below)
