Digi-Key Electronics signs global partnership with QuickLogic

Embedded FPGA IP (eFPGA) for hardware acceleration, pre-processing, and heterogeneous multi-core SoCs that integrate eFPGA with other processors and peripherals, as well as open source FPGA tools by QuickLogic are now available from Digi-Key, via the distributor’s Marketplace.

Fabless semiconductor company, QuickLogic uses open source FPGA tools through its QuickLogic Open Reconfigurable Computing (QORC) initiative.

QuickLogic products are supported by many popular open source software tools such as Zephyr, FreeRTOS, SymbiFlow and Renode.

The QuickLogic EOS S3 family of SoCs can be used when adding always-on wake word detection, deploying AI inferencing models at the edge/endpoint, or using a low power Arm Cortex-M4F microcontroller based on open source software, explains Digi-Key.

The product portfolio, available via Digi-Key Marketplace includes the EOS S3 microcontroller sensor processing platform. Using the integrated Arm Cortex-M4F MCU and embedded FPGA (eFPGA) core, customers can go from idea to prototype to mass production quickly, says Digi-Key. The platform It is supported by a low-cost development kit and open source software toolchains (Zephyr, FreeRTOS) as well as QuickLogic’s FPGA user tools.

There is also the EOS S3 Voice + Sensor Hub. This supports concurrent sensor processing with voice recognition.

The EOS S3-AI is an all-inclusive, low power development environment to economically incorporate the benefits of AI in endpoint applications.

The portfolio includes QuickFeather development kit supported by open source tools. The onboard EOS S3 has a Cortex-M4F MCU and integrated eFPGA.

Also included is the Qomu development kit which has a low power embedded processor and low power FPGA technology, making it a suitable development platform for edge IoT applications and artificial intelligence/machine learning. The tiny board plugs straight into USB Type-A ports.

“QuickLogic products are optimised for ultra-low power consumption, making them ideal for IoT and consumer mobile applications,” said Anissa Lauer, senior product manager – Marketplace for Digi-Key. “In addition, the Basic Edition of the Analytics Toolkit from QuickLogic’s subsidiary, SensiML, is already available at Digi-Key. As a result, our customers now have a complete software and hardware solution enabling a more rapid ideation and design process.”

SensiML’s Analytics Toolkit offers customers a complete AI development workflow for data collection, labeling, model generation and test/validation of embedded AI.
