EOS S3 Low Power MCU with embedded FPGA - Supported by 100% Open Source Hardware Development Kit and Software Tools

View Full Diagram

Unlike other development kits which are based on proprietary hardware and software tools, QuickFeather is based on open source hardware, compatible with the Adafruit Feather form factor, and is built around 100% open source software (including the Symbiflow FPGA Tools).

The QuickFeather is powered by QuickLogic’s EOS™ S3, the first FPGA-enabled Arm Cortex®-M4F MCU to be fully supported with Zephyr RTOS. Other functionality includes:

  • GigaDevice 16-Mbit of flash memory #GD25Q16CEIGR
  • mCube MC3635 accelerometer
  • Infineon DPS310 pressure sensor
  • Infineon IM69D130 PDM digital microphone
  • Powered from USB or a single Li-Po battery
  • Integrated battery charger
  • USB data signals tied to programmable logic

SensiML Analytics Toolkit suite automates each step of the process for creating optimized AI IoT sensor recognition code. The overall workflow uses a growing library of advanced ML and AI algorithms to generate code that can learn from new data either the development phase or once deployed.
