Avnet, Inc. Introduces New 'ARTY' Xilinx Artix-7 35T FPGA Evaluation Kit

Avnet, Inc. introduced 'ARTY', a low power, low-cost Xilinx Artix-7 35T FPGA Evaluation Kit. This fully customizable evaluation kit for embedded designers provides a fexible, expandable platform for prototyping designs based on Xilinx’s Artix-7 FPGA family. The evaluation kit offers users a complete development system for exploring FPGA designs for cost sensitive, low-power, embedded applications. The ARTY Kit is available now for $99.00. The small form-factor ARTY board supports multiple expansion capabilities by having Arduino compatible and chipKIT IDE header connectors, along with four Digilent Pmod compatible headers. This combination of 80+ I/O allows unprecedented capability for users to interface with the hundreds of Arduino Shields and Digilent Pmods available. Development based on Xilinx’s MicroBlaze soft processor core is enabled with the on-board 256 MB DDR3 SRAM, 10/100 Ethernet interface, USB-UART and an assortment of switches, LEDs and analog inputs. The Xilinx Artix-7 35T FPGA Evaluation Kit includes: ARTY 35T Evaluation Board; and Xilinx Vivado: Design Edition Voucher card (device-locked to XC7A35T).

Avnet Offers New SmartFusion2 KickStart Development Kit for Applications Requiring Highest Levels of Design and Data Security

Avnet, Inc. and Microsemi Corporation introduced the new SmartFusion 2 KickStart Kit. The versatile prototyping solution designed by Avnet offers engineers in communications, medical, automotive, video, smart energy and industrial markets the much-needed low power, high security and reliability required for present Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled devices in a low-cost development and demonstration platform. The SmartFusion2 KickStart Kit is priced at $59.95. Avnet’s SmartFusion2 KickStart board features the low power, single event upset (SEU)-immune Microsemi M2S010S SmartFusion2 SoC FPGA, a secure and integrated programmable system-on-a-chip device with 10k logic elements and a 166 MHz ARM Cortex-M3 processor. Unlike existing SmartFusion2 development boards, Avnet’s KickStart Board does not require a separate JTAG emulator or power supply, as this is now integrated onto the USB-powered board. For communications, Microchip Technology’s RN4020 Bluetooth Low Energy Module is provided in addition to USB serial. Two tiny, low power onboard sensors also allow engineers access to ambient light, a gyrometer, accelerometer and a temperature sensor. The Arduino and Pmod-compatible interfaces provide for the easy addition of existing custom modules to implement applications such as bridging, acceleration and I/O expansion. An easy to-use Windows-based GUI and an Android app are available to demonstrate the full functionality of the SmartFusion2 KickStart Kit. The SmartFusion2 KickStart board features: SmartFusion2 M2S010S SoC FPGA with embedded security; Bluetooth 4.1 (BLE) interface and an Android app; USB serial with Windows-based GUI; Arduino-compatible interface; three 12-pin PMOD-compatible connectors (supply voltages can be set to 3.3V or 2.5V); On-board 6DoF motion plus temperature sensor and MAX44009 ambient light sensor; USB power and JTAG; two user push-button switches; four dual-filament user LEDs (red, green or yellow). The SmartFusion2 KickStart Kit comes with an Avnet reference design that provides examples of how to use device features and interfaces, and includes a number of easy-to-follow demonstrations.
