Programmable logic technologies, such as field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), are an essential component of any modern circuit designer's toolkit. With their expansive capabilities uniquely suited to a wide array of applications, FPGAs are ideal for solving many of the problems facing the rapidly evolving technology sector. The key benefits of programmable logic technologies include immense flexibility, cost savings over custom silicon, and increased performance by hardware parallelism.
The FPGA products available from Rapid include a wide range of training boards and programming modules.
Microcontrollers like the PIC32MX370 form the basis of training kits that give students and developers the ability to gain maximum exposure to a wide range of concepts in embedded systems.
The Digilent range of Pmods (peripheral modules) are small I/O interface boards that offer an ideal way to extend the capabilities of programmable logic and embedded control boards. Pmod modules communicate with system boards using 6, 8 or 12-pin connectors that carry multiple digital control signals. They allow for more effective designs by routing analog signals and power supplies only where they are needed, and away from digital controller boards.
Breadboards, oscilloscope probes, components and ribbon cables for use with Digilent development kits and training boards. We will be adding more Digilent accessories as our range grows.
