Arduino MKR Vidor 4000

Added to your shopping cart

Looking for a board for a very specific use that Arduino doesn’t make? Or maybe you want a more complex central board, optimized for your particular needs that will interface with all other Arduino boards and devices. The MKR Vidor 4000 is highly configurable and powerful, and it can perform high-speed digital audio and video processing.

With the MKR Vidor 4000 you can configure it the way you want; you can essentially create your own controller board. It comes loaded with hardware and potential: an 8MB SRAM; a 2MB QSPI Flash chip — 1 MB allocated for user applications; a Micro HDMI connector; an MIPI camera connector; and Wifi & BLE powered by U-BLOX NINA W10 Series. It also includes the classic MKR interface on which all pins are driven both by SAMD21 and FPGA. Plus, it has a Mini PCI Express connector with up to 25 user programmable pins.

The FPGA contains 16K Logic Elements, 504KB of embedded RAM, and 56 18x18 bit HW multipliers for high-speed DSP. Each pin can toggle at over 150MHz and can be configured for functions such as UARTs, (Q)SPI, high resolution/high frequency PWM, quadrature encoder, I2C, I2S, Sigma Delta DAC, etc.

The on-board FPGA can be also used for high-speed DSP operations for audio and video processing. This board also features a Microchip SAMD21. Communication between FPGA and the SAMD21 is seamless.

How to program SAMD21 or SAMD51 boards (or other ARM processors).

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

5 Programming

Skill Level: Expert - You should be extremely comfortable programming on various hardware in several languages.
See all skill levels

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
