We took QuickLogic’s QuickFeather, updated the onboard sensor selection, ported it to the SparkFun Thing Plus form factor, and added SparkFun's Qwiic Connect System!
For several years now, SparkFun has worked with Crowd Supply to find great products and connect with innovative creators. With the release of the Sparkfun Thing Plus - QuickLogic EOS S3, this collaboration went a step further by connecting SparkFun (known for rapid prototyping and open hardware) and QuickLogic (known for ultra-low-power FPGAs and SoCs for use in high-volume, power-sensitive applications) to jointly produce a small form factor, open source FPGA dev board with many unique applications.
This low-power consumption board is ideal for IoT, TinyML and traditional MCU applications. Additionally, the eFPGA opens up many use cases, such as hardware offloading, I/O expansion, and real-time I/O control.
The QuickLogic and SparkFun teams are currently experimenting with many use cases, including air quality monitoring, voice processing and gesture recognition. Once the documentation comes together, we will be sure to share.
Whether you are designing products/prototypes or creating an at-home project, the SparkFun Thing Plus – QuickLogic EOS S3 can support your IoT and machine learning needs. We would love to hear how you would use this board or use cases you would like us to create - leave a comment.
