XLR8™ Arduino-Compatible FPGA Development Board

Alorium's XLR8 lets users work in the Arduino IDE while taking advantage of the Intel® MAX® 10 FPGA platform

Image of Alorium's XLR8: Arduino Compatible FPGA Development Board Alorium's XLR8 is a drop-in replacement for an Arduino Uno with out-of-the-box Arduino simplicity with FPGA performance, speed, and precision. XLR8 integrates an AVR-compatible microcontroller in the on-board MAX 10 FPGA, providing compatibility with the vast ecosystem of Arduino shields and accessories and the Arduino IDE.

Alorium Technology provides a library of custom logic functions called Xcelerator Blocks (XBs) through the Arduino IDE that accelerate specific functionality that is slow, problematic, or even impossible for an 8-bit microcontroller. This library includes XBs such as Servo Control, Quadrature, Floating Point Math, NeoPixel, and Enhanced Analog-to-Digital Converter.
