SparkFun Thing Plus - QuickLogic EOS S3 is a collaboration between
SparkFun and QuickLogic. We took QuickLogic’s
updated the onboard sensor selection and ported it to the SparkFun
Thing Plus form factor, a critical piece of which is a Qwiic
As with all our prototypes, the boards pictured here have a black PCB,
but all production boards that will actually ship to backers will come
in SparkFun’s standard red PCB color.
Perfect for Wearable & Voice Applications
Betweeen the onboard Li-Po battery connector and charging circuitry,
wake-on-sound PDM microphone, and low-power, three-axis accelerometer,
this Thing Plus board is ideal for wearable and voice
applications. The strong firmware support for the the microphone and
accelerator make it easy move sensor data into the embedded FPGA. From
there, use SensiML, TensorFlow
Lite, or other tools to train and
run embedded machine learning algorithms specific to your application.
Tons of expansion boards: There are over 150 Qwiic-compatible
expansion boards to choose from, including everything from RFID
readers to displays to keypads.
No soldering: Qwiic cables (4-pin JST) plug easily from
development boards to sensors, shields, accessory boards, and more,
making easy work of setting up a new prototype.
Polarized connector: There's no need to worry about accidentally
swapping the SDA and SCL wires on your breadboard. The Qwiic
connector is polarized so you know you'll have it wired correctly
every time, right from the start.
Daisy chain-able: It's time to leverage the power of the I²C
bus! Most Qwiic boards will have two or more connectors on them,
allowing multiple devices to be connected.
This board features the QuickLogic EOS S3 System-on-Chip (SoC), which
contains a low-power Arm® Cortex®-M4F processor and an embedded
FPGA. The EOS S3 is supported by a full suite of open source tools.
Since 2003, SparkFun has been helping turn ideas into reality – whether you’re creating a smart weather station, exploring the frontier of machine learning, building a robot for school or prototyping your first (or tenth) product.
