QuickFeather Low Power MCU Open Source Hardware Development Kit

The QuickFeather Low Power MCU Open Source Hardware Development Kit (HDK) is a small form factor system ideal for next generation low-power, Machine Learning (ML) capable, IoT devices. Unlike other development kits based on proprietary hardware and software tools, QuickFeather is based on 100% open source hardware, compatible with the Adafruit Feather form factor, and is built around 100% open source software (including the Symbiflow FPGA Tools).

The QuickFeather HDK is powered by QuickLogic’s EOSTM S3, the first
eFPGA-enabled Arm CortexR-M4F MCU to be fully supported with Zephyr RTOS and FreeRTOS.

Other functionality includes:

• QuickLogic EOS S3 MCU Platform
• mCube MC3635 accelerometer
• Infineon DPS310 pressure sensor
• Infineon IM69D130 MEMS microphone
• 16Mbit of on-board flash memory
• User button and RGB LED
• Powered from USB or a single Li-Po battery
• Integrated battery charger
• USB data signals tied to programmable logic
• IO signals break-routed into general purpose pinheads
• Compatible with standard 0.1″ breadboards

For more information and pre-ordering, see the QuickLogic product page.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
