Advantages

  • PROGRAMMABLE with Arduino IDE
  • EMBEDDED 8-bit AVR instruction set compatible microcontroller
  • CONFIGURABLE with custom Xcelerator Blocks on the FPGA
  • FASTER clock rates and overall application speed

A compact footprint and Arduino compatibility make it perfect for fitting into final projects!

*New product!* 


General availability for Snō is scheduled for August as we finalize a new revision of the PCB to ensure full FCC compliance for both commercial and home use.

The current version is available to commercial and industrial users.  If you are interested in using Snō as a embedded SoM in your commercial application, please contact us at sales@aloriumtech.com

Xcelerator Blocks

What’s an Xcelerator Block?

An Xcelerator Block is an optimized hardware implementation of a unique processor intensive function. Since everything needs a cool acronym, we simply refer to one of these blocks as an “XB”.

Snō ships with pre-installed XBs that target application-specific behavior. These are listed on the right. Snō can be field-updated to change the XBs implemented on the FPGA. Learn more about XBs on the Xcelerator Blocks page.

XBs Pre-installed on Snō

Enhanced Analog-to-Digital Converter

NeoPixel Control

Floating Point Math

Servo Control

OpenXLR8

OpenXLR8 is the methodology that allows Snō users to create their own custom Xcelerator Blocks and integrate them into the FPGA.
