Optimising board performance and accelerating development time

Paul Boughton

Arrow Electronics has announced the latest addition to its portfolio of development tools with the Arrow DECA evaluation board, featuring Altera’s MAX 10 FPGA and Enpirion power solutions.

Altera’s MAX 10 FPGAs transforms non-volatile FPGAs by integrating dual-configuration flash, analogue blocks, memory, DSP and embedded processing capabilities all within a small form-factor single chip package.

Arrow Electronics has collaborated with Altera, Texas Instruments (TI), Silicon Labs, Micron, Molex and Cypress in the development of the DECA board.

Featuring TI’s new HDC1000 humidity sensor and temperature sensor, DECA is a full-featured hardware evaluation board that enables engineers to reduce board area, cost, and complexity while interfacing to a multitude of sensors and interfaces.

Additionally, the board incorporates other signal chain, audio, and logic integrated circuits from TI. Coupled with a BLE/WIFI cape, both software and hardware engineers can utilise DECA to kickstart an Internet of Things (IoT) design that takes integration to the next level.
