SPARK-100 plug & play ARM environment with FPGA fully configurable


Product Overview
Spark-100 block diagramThe Spark-100 is a ready to use industrial embedded System-On-Module (SoM) based on Altera Cyclone® V SOC.
Using the FPGA´s configurable logic, the Spark enables unlimited possibilities to add customized accelerators and virtually any peripheral set, giving the developer the power and flexibility to design the optimal solution for his application. Spark-100 uses a standard SMARC® interface, which is supported by key industry vendors, ensuring adherence to strict technical specifications and offering compatibility with other vendor´s platforms.
