Mouser stocks Arduino MKR VIDOR 4000 development board
Engineers can create their own controller board using the MKR VIDOR 4000 development board from Arduino. The board is equipped with an array of hardware and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity on top of an Intel Cyclone 10 field programmable gate array (FPGA) and a Microchip SAM D21 microcontroller. Distributor Mouser Electronics announces that it now stock Arduino’s MKR VIDOR 4000 development board.
The Arduino MKR VIDOR 4000’s Intel Cyclone 10 FPGA has 16k logic elements and 504kbytes of embedded RAM, and the 32-bit Microchip SAM D21 Arm Cortex-M0+ microcontroller with 256kbytes of flash memory and 32kbytes of SRAM. The board also offers a 2Mbyte QSPI flash chip, 8Mbytes of SDRAM, and 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and dual-mode Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity. Other board features include a Mini PCI Express connector with up to 25 user-programmable pins, MIPI camera connector, and a Micro HDMI connector.
The configurable and powerful board offers 56 18-bit x 18-bit hardware multipliers for high-speed DSP applications. The FPGA pins can toggle up to 150MHz and can also be configured as common communications ports such as UART, I²C, and SPI, for audio and video processing. The MKR VIDOR 4000 also includes a Microchip ECC608 CryptoAuthentication IC, which combines hardware-based key storage with hardware cryptographic accelerators to implement various authentication and encryption protocols.
The MKR VIDOR 4000 uses the Arduino MKR form factor and pinout on the standard analogue and digital pins, allowing engineers to add shields and accessories designed for the other MKR boards.

Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platforms based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino prototyping platforms are intended for designers, beginners, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. Arduino projects can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect their surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. Arduino projects can be standalone or they can communicate with software running on a computer.
