Global distribution agreement offers multi-core SoC platform and dev kits

20-04-2021 | Mouser Electronics | Development Boards

Mouser has announced a global distribution agreement with QuickLogic Corporation. Through the agreement, the company now supplies the company’s EOS S3 microcontroller and FPGA-based platform and QuickFeather development kit.

The EOS S3 sensor processing platform is a multi-core SoC that facilitates a comprehensive array of concurrent sensor applications, from basic to computationally demanding algorithms for smartphone, wearable, and IoT devices. The platform combines an ultra-low-power Arm Cortex-M4F microcontroller subsystem and eFPGA fabric, with optional Sensory LPSD for on-chip voice recognition. The heterogeneous architecture of the sensor allows designers to partition their software and use cases across the variety of cores to optimise their system for the lowest power consumption.

The QuickFeather development kit is a small form factor system that allows the next generation of low-power ML-capable IoT devices. The QuickFeather, powered by the EOS S3, is based on open-source hardware compatible with the Adafruit Feather form factor. The board is constructed around a 100% open-source software ecosystem, incorporating SymbiFlow FPGA tools, Zephyr and FreeRTOS real-time operating systems, and Renode). Furthermore, an abundance of third-party software is offered for various sensor processing, voice, and AI/ML use cases, including SensiML and Google’s TensorFlow Lite for Microcontrollers.
