You can buy FPGA accelerated Arduino board at Mouser

You can buy FPGA accelerated Arduino board at Mouser

A distribution deal with Alorium Technology will see Mouser offering an Arduino-compatible board with a difference, it adds hardware acceleration of an FPGA. The XLR8 development board’s main processor is also different for an Arduino board. The ATmega328-compatible microcontroller core is implemented in the Altera MAX 10 FPGA. And developers can also implement custom logic as Xcelerator Blocks (XBs) that can be integrated into the reconfigurable FPGA and interfaced directly to the processor. The result is shorter times to complete complex tasks in hardware which makes more clock cycles available for additional software functions. According to the supplier: “The XLR8’s FPGA-based hardware acceleration and offload results in significantly improved performance in the same physical footprint, using the same tool chain as standard Arduino Uno boards. “Sketches designed for Ard...
