Mouser Electronics has released the latest version of Quartus II software from Altera Corp. According to the company, the software is the industry's leading software in performance and productivity for CPLD, FPGA, SoC and ASIC designs, and claims to be a complete software package offering design-entry, simulation, synthesis, place-and-route and design verification.

Quartus II software supports the development of complex systems through a suite of full-featured, high-level design environments that include C-based, system- or IP-based and model based design entry tools.

Mouser is offering the latest release of the Quartus II software subscription edition. Version 13.0 allows for an average of 25 per cent faster compilation compared with Quartus II software v12.1 and up to three times improvement for some designs, stated the firm. In addition, Quartus II software v13.0 provides an advantage over the nearest competitor in high-end space and superior logic packing capability. Quartus II software v13.0 includes a notification centre that provides remote real-time compiler status.

Mouser has also begun stocking the Freescale Kinetis KL02 MCU that combines the world's smallest ARM Cortex-M0+ processor running at 48MHz with improved energy efficiency and feature integration.

Freescale's Kinetis KL02 MCU, available from Mouser Electronics in a chip scale package (CSP), is the world's smallest ARM Cortex-M0+ based MCU. The Freescale Kinetis KL02 uses 25 per cent less PCB area than the nearest competing microcontroller and adds 60 per cent more general purpose I/O (GPIO).

The energy-saving architecture is optimised for low power, benefiting from 90nm TFS technology as well as clock and power gating techniques. The MCU also boasts a low power boot option, an efficient bit manipulation engine, a peripheral bridge crossbar for more efficient peripheral intercommunications and zero wait state flash memory. A variety of built-in low power modes provide flexible software options for maximising battery life.

Features include 32KB of Flash, 4KB of RAM, serial connectivity, a 12bit ADC, low power timers, integrated temperature sensor, memory security circuitry and on-chip debug.

Also available from Mouser Electronics is the FRDM-KL02Z Freedom Development Platform to help engineers discover more about the KL02 MCU.
