  • snickerdoodle is a business-card-sized System-on-Module for any application requiring ARM, abundant I/O, and wireless connectivity. At the heart of snickerdoodle is Zynq, an ARM-based FPGA SoC from Xilinx. This 7010 version has a 667MHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and 159 I/O across snickerdoodle’s six pin headers - which can be configured facing “up” (for bench-top prototyping) or “down” (for use with a baseboard or in production). Along with Zynq is a TI WiLink 8, 2.4GHz SISO Wi-Fi radio with Bluetooth 4.0 (classic + BLE) and 1GB of LPDDR2 RAM.

  • snickerdoodle black is an upgraded version of snickerdoodle. Pin-compatible with snickerdoodle, the black version uses a Zynq 7020 and adds 25 extra FPGA I/O (40 pins), 3x the programmable logic, and a 30% faster dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor (866MHz). snickerdoodle black also upgrades to a dual-band 2.5GHz & 5GHz 2x2 MIMO Wi-Fi radio (along with Bluetooth 4.0 as with snickerdoodle).
  • breakyBreaky is a breakout baseboard for snickerdoodle. snickerdoodle plugs into the top to provide all the snickerdoodle I/O pins on 0.1” headers, along with a power barrel jack and standard JTAG headers.
  • piSmasher is a ‘single-board computer’ baseboard for snickerdoodle. Plug snickerdoodle in to enable 1080P/60 HDMI in and out, gigabit Ethernet, USB-A 2.0, and 0.1” headers for I/O.
