"Amazing and FPGA in the same word let along the same sentence" do we hear you say?!
Yes, as Arduino continues its quest to 'democratize IoT development,' we've added the new MKR Vidor 4000 board to the MKR family, making the power and flexibility of FPGA accessible to everyone!
Entry level - Simply use the Arduino IDE as usual - including example Vidor software libraries bring in FPGA bitfile too - as if by magic!
Intermediate level - Visual tool let you configure a hardware system.
Advanced level - Quartus project file enables you to develop your own Verilog, which you can make available to others in the visual tool.
Still not convinced that it's AMAZING, well you get all this and the MKR Connector Carrier and Grove Starter Kit Plus for only €125,00.
Meaning, there's never been a better time to enter the world of FPGA and the endless project possibilities it offers!
- 1 x MKR Vidor 4000 - Microchip ATSAMD21 (ARM Cortex-M0+ processor) and standard MKR pinout. Connect a MIPI camera for machine vision applications, or drive a video display via micro HDMI. Control precision robotics systems with a quadrature encoder, or high resolution PWM. An additional MiniPCI Express connector gives the FPGA even more I/O options, while an onboard BLE and WiFi module means you can easily connect your applications.
The first FPGA Arduino board
MIPI Video Input
1 x MKR Connector Carrier - Allows you to connect several Seeed Studio Grove modules to your Arduino board; enabling you to build real systems quickly and easily for your IoT prototype.
Interface with up to 14 Grove Connectors
Analog inputs six at 5V
Digitial input/output six at 5V
Other connectors one 5V I2C, one 5V UART
- 1 x Grove Starter Kit Plus - Simple, quick and easy, the Grove Starter Kit turns building your IoT devices into an enjoyable process. The perfect add kit for the Arduino MKR Vidor 4000, it contains a compatible Grove Base Shield and a bunch of sensors and actuators with built in Grove interfaces. Simply plug in the modules and you are ready to bring your IoT solution to life.
Enter the world of FPGAs using the simplicity of Arduino and Seeed Studio’s Grove ecosystem.
