Mouser Electronics has signed a global distribution agreement with San Francisco-based krtkl inc (“critical”), a provider of high-performance, low-power embedded hardware and software for edge computing applications ranging from mechatronics and automation to computer vision and remote sensing. Through the agreement, Mouser now stocks three krtkl products, including its popular embedded platform, snickerdoodle black.

krtkl’s snickerdoodle black system-on-module is a prototype-to-production platform for building high-integrity IoT products. Built on a Xilinx Zynq-7020 system-on-chip and a Texas Instruments WiLink 8 wireless module, snickerdoodle is designed to make high-performance, power-efficient computing and artificial intelligence at the network edge practical, affordable and scalable.

The 51 x 89mm board offers a Zynq system-on-chip with two 866 MHz Arm Cortex-A9 cores and a 1.3M gate Xilinx Artix-7 field-programmable gate array (FPGA), dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth low-energy connectivity, 1Gbyte of LPDDR2 RAM, 125 reconfigurable FPGA inputs/outputs and 55 additional I/O pins. Out of the box, snickerdoodle supports Ubuntu Linux, Python, PYNQ, C/C++ and bare metal. Every snickerdoodle black includes an adhesive-backed copper heatsink.

breakyBreaky is a snickerdoodle breakout baseboard that enables engineers to access the full snickerdoodle pinout via 2.54mm headers. For applications and projects that have less stringent size constraints, the 100 x 125mm model comes loaded with 270 pins, as well as a 14-pin Xilinx JTAG header, a 2.54mm-grid plated-through-hole prototyping area, DC power jack and four adhesive-backed locking PCB supports.

piSmasher is a single-board computer snickerdoodle baseboard for audio/video processing, networking, edge AI and general computing applications. It includes dual FPGA-connected Gigabit Ethernet interfaces with PHY support for time-sensitive networking as well as simultaneous HDMI video input and output at up to WUXGA (1920 x 1200) at 60Hz and 8-channel, 32bit/192 kHz HDMI audio input and output.

Additionally, piSmasher has four high-speed USB 2.0 type-A host receptacles and a dedicated 96kHz stereo audio codec with color-coded 3.5mm jacks for line-in, line-out and headset (stereo audio, mono microphone), and provides access to 25 of snickerdoodle’s reconfigurable FPGA I/O. The 89 x 144mm board also has an I²C identification and configuration EEPROM, 14-pin Xilinx JTAG header, DC power jack and four adhesive-backed locking PCB supports.
