Qomu – an QuickLogic’s Open Source SoC Dev Kit for USB Port

By | February 10, 2021

Qomu development kit, a tiny form Arm® Cortex®-M4F MCU + eFPGA blend that finds a way into a USB Type A port. Streamlined for the QuickLogic Open Reconfigurable Computing (QORC) activity, the pack is upheld by a wide assortment of merchant upheld open source improvement devices, including Zephyr, FreeRTOS, SymbiFlow and Renode, which expands access and empowers originators to create applications practically anyplace.

The Qomu development kit contains QuickLogic’s EOS S3 MCU + eFPGA SoC, which empowers a fantastic measure of handling capacity for a particularly little improvement unit. The MCU empowers consistent programming improvement while the inserted FPGA (eFPGA) can be utilized to quicken or offload calculations from the MCU, or to just execute custom IP or give stick rationale. While the pack can execute a wide scope of usefulness for a wide arrangement of market fragments, it is particularly appropriate to edge IoT applications – particularly those requiring super low force utilization and man-made brainpower or AI capacities.

QuickLogic’s QORC activity has prompted a totally open source, merchant upheld advancement apparatus climate for the Qomu improvement unit. Open source advancement instruments incorporate SymbiFlow amalgamation, place and course, and bitstream age. Numerous model applications and gateware are promptly accessible for nothing. Notwithstanding standard Verilog uphold with SymbiFlow, Qomu underpins nMigen for a Python-to-FPGA configuration stream. Extra open source instruments incorporate Zephyr, FreeRTOS and Renode.
