EnSilica has appointed Anglia Components as its business development partner in the UK and Ireland for its eSi-Modules family of FPGA-based system-on-modules. Anglia will target the eSi-Modules at key vertical industry sectors including utilities, smart cities, oil and gas, access control, medical devices, IoT, industrial internet and telematics.
Ian Lankshear, CEO of EnSilica, said: “With its strong application knowledge, extensive team of field application engineers, good outreach into key vertical markets, excellent geographical coverage and complementary product lines, Anglia is the perfect choice.”
John Bowman, Marketing Director of Anglia added: “EnSilica helps us to offer a solution for both existing FPGA users and for customers who have a design which requires an FPGA but perhaps don’t have the budget or design resource to develop their own solution.”
EnSilica’s eSi-Modules family comprises the eSi-ZM1 small form factor system-on-module built around the Xilinx Zynq extensible programming platform with Xilinx Series-7 FPGA fabric and powered by an ARM dual-core Cortex A9 processor running embedded Linux. This is supported by the eSi-ZB1-DK full development kit comprising carrier board, ZM1 module and a power supply, and eSi-ZB1-BB carrier board without the ZM1 module.
The eSi-ZM1 is claimed to facilitate low risk and fast-time-to-market development with minimal integration effort across a range of applications and hardware designs without sacrificing differentiation or flexibility. It also provides a range of advanced I/O including gigabit Ethernet, USB, I2C and SD card.
