Digi-Key announces global partnership with QuickLogic

1 min read

Digi-Key has secured a global partnership with QuickLogic through the Digi-Key Marketplace to offer their range of low power, multi-core MCU, FPGAs and embedded FPGAs, voice and sensor processors.

QuickLogic is a fabless semiconductor company that uses open source FPGA tools through their QuickLogic Open Reconfigurable Computing (QORC) initiative.

With the addition of QuickLogic products to the Digi-Key Marketplace, customers will now have a complete software and hardware ultra-low power solution, enabling them to go quickly from idea to design.

QuickLogic products are supported by a broad number of popular open source software tools such as Zephyr, FreeRTOS, SymbiFlow and Renode.

QuickLogic's EOS S3 family of SoCs can help customers to add always-on wake word detection, deploy AI inferencing models at the edge/endpoint, or access a low power Arm Cortex-M4F MCU based on completely open source software.

The product portfolio includes:

EOS S3 MCU Sensor Processing Platform – With the integrated Arm Cortex-M4F MCU and embedded FPGA (eFPGA) core, customers can go from idea to prototype to mass production quickly. It is supported by an easy-to-use, low-cost dev kit and opensource software toolchains (Zephyr, FreeRTOS) as well as QuickLogic’s FPGA user tools.

EOS S3 Voice + Sensor Hub – Supports concurrent sensor processing with voice recognition. The ultra-low power solution supports long battery life without sacrificing user experience.

EOS S3-AI – An all-inclusive low power solution and development environment to economically incorporate the benefits of AI in endpoint applications.

QuickFeather Development Kit – QuickFeather is small, Feather compatible, inexpensive, and fully supported by opensource tools. With a Cortex-M4F MCU and integrated eFPGA, the onboard EOS S3 lets you innovate with fully opensource hardware and software.

Qomu Development Kit– Having both an extremely low power embedded processor and low power FPGA technology makes Qomu the perfect development platform, especially for edge IoT applications and artificial intelligence/machine learning capabilities. The tiny board plugs straight into USB Type-A ports, making it possible to design anywhere.

“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, labelling, model generation and test/validation of embedded AI.
