snickerdoodle black system-on-module (SoM) is a Zynq-based computer module with dual-band Wi-Fi, BLE, 1GB RAM, 16MB flash, 180 I/O, an SD card cage, and is the size of a business card. Built on a Xilinx® Zynq™-7020 system-on-chip (SoC) and a Texas Instruments WiLink™ 8 wireless module, snickerdoodle is designed to make high-performance, power-efficient computing and artificial intelligence (AI) at the network edge practical, affordable, and scalable.
The 2.0″ x 3.5″ (50.8mm x 88.9mm) board offers a Zynq SoC with two 866MHz Arm® Cortex®-A9 cores and a 1.3M gate Xilinx Artix®-7 field-programmable gate array (FPGA), dual-band Wi-Fi and BLUETOOTH® Low Energy connectivity, 1GByte of LPDDR2 RAM, 125 reconfigurable FPGA inputs/outputs (I/O), and 55 additional I/O pins. Out of the box, snickerdoodle supports Ubuntu Linux, Python, PYNQ, C/C++, and bare metal. Every snickerdoodle black includes an adhesive-backed copper heat sink.
snickerdoodle black is offered in two variants for design flexibility: The Connectors Down variant features bottom-mounted headers, while the Connectors Up variant features top-mounted headers.
piSmasher is a snickerdoodle baseboard for audio/video processing, networking, edge AI, and general computing applications. It includes dual, FPGA-connected Gigabit Ethernet interfaces with PHY support for Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN), and simultaneous HDMI video input and output at up to WUXGA (1920x1200p) at 60Hz and 8-channel, 32-bit/192kHz HDMI audio input and output.
Additionally, piSmasher has four High-Speed USB 2.0 Type-A Host receptacles and a dedicated 96kHz Stereo Audio Codec with color-coded 3.5 mm jacks for line-in, line-out, and headset (stereo audio, mono microphone), and provides access to 25 of snickerdoodle’s reconfigurable FPGA I/O. The 3.5″ × 5.66″ (88.9mm × 143.8mm) board also has an I2C identification and configuration EEPROM, 14-pin Xilinx JTAG header, DC power jack, and four adhesive-backed locking PCB supports.
breakyBreaky is a snickerdoodle breakout baseboard that enables engineers to access the full snickerdoodle pinout via 0.1″ (2.54mm) headers. For applications and projects that have less stringent size constraints, the 3.94×4.92″ (100×125mm) breakyBreaky comes loaded with 270 pins, and a 14-pin Xilinx JTAG header, a 0.1″ (2.54mm) grid plated-through-hole prototyping area, DC power jack, and four adhesive-backed locking PCB supports.
Capitalization and Pronunciation
- “krtkl” is pronounced like the English word “critical” and should be written in all lower case (not ALL CAPS—it is not an acronym)
- “snickerdoodle” is pronounced like the cookie and should be written in all lower case
- “piSmasher” is pronounced “pie” (as in the food) “smasher” and should be written using camelCase with a leading lower-case “p”
- “breakyBreaky” follows the same capitalization ‘rules’ as piSmasher
