ReFLEX CES & Mouser sign a global distribution agreement

Mouser Signs Global Agreement with ReFLEX CES to Distribute Out-of-the-Box Arria 10 Development Kits

April 10, 2017 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, today announced a global distribution agreement with ReFLEX CES, a leading provider of complex, high-density FPGA-based boards. Through the agreement, Mouser is stocking the company’s Attilla, Alaric, and Achilles Arria® 10 Instant  development Kits (IDKs). All ReFLEX CES IDKs are complete, out-of-the-box solutions that combine a compact hardware platform with an efficient and intuitive software environment.

ReFLEX CES’s portfolio of Arria 10 IDKs, now available from Mouser Electronics, are highperformance kits that provide all the hardware, software design tools, and pre-verified test designs
necessary to develop solutions based on Intel® Arria 10 FPGAs and systems-on-chips (SoCs).
The ReFLEX CES Attila IDK, based on the Intel Arria 10 FPGA GX, is designed for high-performance serial transceiver applications. The Atilla IDK comes equipped with an advanced memory interface with DDR4 SODIMM memory up to 16 GBytes, extension inputs and outputs (IOs), an on-board programmable PLL oscillator, and an eight-lane PCIe. Network communications are developed using an RJ45 copper connector with 10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet (through the RGMII PHY).

The Alaric IDK is based on Intel’s system-on-chip (SoC) FPGA technology, which integrates a dualcore ARM® Cortex®-A9 processor subsystem into a user-customizable FPGA that leverages a highbandwidth interconnect. Also designed for high-performance serial transceiver applications, this IDK comes equipped with an advanced memory interface with DDR3 on-board memory up to 4 GBytes, a display output port for video and an eight-lane PCIe.

The Achilles IDK also features a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore, as well as up to 660,000 advanced low-power FPGA logic elements, combining the flexibility and ease of programming a CPU with the configurability and parallel processing power of an FPGA. The kit is comprised of the Arria 10 SoC system-on-module (SoM) plus a starter board for quick prototyping and application testing. This IDK offers superior signal integrity, and provides support for multi-Gigabit serial protocols including PCIe Gen3 and 10G Ethernet. Target applications for the ReFLEX CES IDKs include video capture and processing devices, industrial products, test and measurement equipment, and medical devices.
