Project update 8 of 11
Check out this update for news about a low-power FPGA with a highly secure Linux-capable RISC-V subsystem, a DIY console for retro gaming, an open source, programmable, mini 8-key keypad, and a high performance current and magnetic field probe.
PolarBerry is a System-on-Module (SoM) SBC utilizing the Microchip PolarFire FPGA, which integrates a low-power FPGA with a highly secure, four-application-core, 64-bit, Linux-capable RISC-V subsystem. It comes with built-in security, low- and high-speed connectivity, and is designed to be application-flexible, while also being quick to use and deploy. Support this live campaign today.
uSVC is a simple, do-it-yourself game console that allows you to create and play retro-style 8-bit games with standard USB controllers and keyboards. It comes as a kit, and all you need to assemble it are basic, through-hole soldering skills. The ATSAMD21E18 (mounted on the uChip development board) is the core of uSVC; it handles VGA and audio signal generation, graphics (sprites, background, etc), sound/music, input, game logic, etc. that make this project possible.

ANAVI Macro Pad 8 is an open source, custom-programmable, mini 8-key keyboard/keypad. Each key can be reprogrammed to activate a macro or even a dedicated shortcut - all without any coding experience! It is powered by the advanced, but easy-to-use Quantum Mechanical Keyboard (QMK) open source firmware, and uses the Microchip ATMEGA32U4-AU MCU. Pre-order your ANAVI Macro Pad 8 for January 2021 delivery.
Little Bee is an affordable and high performance current probe and magnetic field probe that will allow you to debug and analyze electronic devices more effectively. Little Bee uses the PIC16F1776 microcontroller to auto-zero the analog circuity and respond to user input to swap the bandwidth / gain ranges. By using the PIC16F1776, there’s also no need for expensive external DACs! Learn more about Little Bee and subscribe for a launch alert.
Does your project showcase Microchip components? If so, you could be eligible to enter the Microchip Get Launched electronics design program! Microchip makes great electronic components and we’re looking for equally great examples of how they’re enabling new, innovative products in the real world.
