Arrow’s New FPGA-Based IoT Maker Board

Arrow Electronics has introduced a new FPGA IoT Maker Board designed for end-to-end application development and optimised for cost. The Arrow MAX1000 board can be installed directly into a custom application or integrated on to a completely separate board.

It has been created for start-ups, universities or established equipment manufacturers who want a flexible, low cost FPGA platform for development, and the distributor can also supply customised variants.

At the heart of the maker board is a compact (11x11mm) Intel MAX10 FPGA with 8000 logic elements. This single chip includes integrated flash memory, a 1Msps 12bit ADC for analogue signals and a 3.3V power supply. Other features include embedded SRAM, DSP blocks, instant-on within milliseconds, and the ability to implement Intel’s NIOS II soft core embedded processor to perform microcontroller tasks. The board is equipped with an integrated Arrow USB-Blaster that enables the FPGA to be programmed directly from a PC and debugged using the free of charge Intel Quartus Prime Lite software.

The MAX1000’s power can be supplied as 5V from the USB port or via a separate pin. An Enpirion DC/DC converter with integrated coil then generates the 3.3V supply used on board. A MEMS oscillator provides the clock supply for the FPGA and the USB bridge. The low power, 3-axis acceleration sensor – also based on MEMS technology, can be used for position and motion detection, which are often required in IoT applications. External SDRAM can be used for storage of application data or as memory for the NIOS II processor.

Arrow Certification Makes Your Next Product Crowd-funding On Indiegogo Easier

ArrowCertified_Large@3x

Arrow Electronics, the well known company specialized in distribution and services related to electronic components and computer products, and Indiegogo crowd-funding website announced the “Arrow Certification”.

ArrowCer

Crowd-funding a hardware product is something not so easy and complicated especially when we talk about manufacturing, supply chain management, packaging and warehousing. For this reason Arrow decided to help hardware entrepreneurs with this new certificate.

‘Arrow Certification” benefits are in a lot of aspects needed in your crowd-funding campaign like marketing and engineering.
Arrow engineers will evaluate and consult you especially in the fields Arrow are good at like Bill of Materials Optimization and Design for Manufacture. Arrow will help you in manufacturing, managing supply chain, packaging and warehousing.

“Arrow Certification” will allow you to access to a lot of Arrow engineering tools like:

  • 6 Free months access to SiliconExpert part search engine the largest electronic component database according to Arrow.
  • Access to Arrow Testdrive™ to try new tools from leading semiconductor manufacturers before you buy them free of charge for 21 days.

You will save money using this certification up to $1,000 for BOM (Bill of Materials) and 10% discount on Arrow.com beside free domestic ground shipping.

If your product successfully certified by Arrow, then your Indiegogo campaign page will receive an “Arrow Certified” badge and you’ll receive instructions to claim “Arrow Certified” special benefits. For more information about the Arrow Certification, read the following pages:
