RS Components adds Trenz Electronic’s FPGA and SoC modules 

Development boards and modules, based on FPGAs and SoCs from Trenz Electronic, target industrial and educational applications and are available from distributor RS Components.

FPGAs and other semiconductors that perform efficient processing in parallel are increasingly used to meet the demands of applications that are gathering and storing increasing amounts of data, particularly in IoT applications.

RS Components has added the Trenz development boards and system on modules (SoMs) to help educate engineers and researchers working in industry or academia and get them up and operating in a relatively short timeframe.

Targeting a range of industrial applications, in addition to scientific research areas, the Trenz modules are suitable for embedded vision, industrial cameras for monitoring and control, medical instruments, atomic force microscopy (AFM), and ASIC-emulation applications.

Initial products in the Trenz range available from RS Components are a series of Xilinx FPGA-based boards, such as a Kintex-7 FPGA module with multi-Gigabit transceivers, an Artix-7 35T FPGA module with dual 100Mbit Ethernet transceivers, and an Artix-7 based module offering 32Mbyte of Quad SPI flash memory and a large number of configurable I/Os.

These boards will shortly be joined by a range of Xilinx Zynq SoC modules and starter kits, including the ZynqBerry FPGA module, which comes in the Raspberry Pi form-factor and is based on the Zynq-7010 SoC; and the UltraSOM+ module, which integrates the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC.

The Trenz FPGA and SoC modules are now in stock at RS for businesses and educational establishments in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.

RS Components offers more than 500,000 industrial and electronics products, sourced from over 2,500 leading suppliers, and serves over one million customers. It has operations in 32 countries and ships more than 50,000 parcels a day.
