The next generation of embedded DSP and FPGA boards available from Traquair, the D.Module2 product family, provides developers with access to the very latest in high performance single and multi-core DSP processors from Texas Instruments, as well as optional use of high-density Xilinx FPGAs, high bandwidth industry-standard communications (e.g. Gigabit Ethernet), and extensive peripheral and I/O capabilities for commercial and industrial applications.
D.Module2 DSP boards can be utilized as stand-alone embedded systems, or integrated as mezzanine plug-in modules with customer or application-specific hardware designs. Communications and I/O capabilities include 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet, USB, analog and digital I/O, FMC and Pmod peripheral card expansion, and nonvolatile data storage using FLASH memory.
With D.Module2, developers can select from the very latest in DSP processors, optional combined with a user-programmable Xilinx LTX Spartan-6 FPGA, and analog I/O modules. The broad range of configuration options allows developers to optimize for cost, flexibility, resource density, and overall system performance.
FPGA Modules can be used in conjunction with or instead of a DSP module. Use of an FPGA module also adds the possibility of utilizing FMC peripheral card I/O. Analog Interface modules can be optionally used with the DSP or FPGA resources, subject to configuration.
Base boards provide a convenient platform for utilizing D.Module2 DSP board stack. In addition to providing power, they also provide a range of communication and peripheral I/O connectors.
The FMC slot allows rapid prototyping of high-speed data acquisition systems with FPGA and DSP processing. A variety of high-speed data converter boards and specialized functions like SDR frontends are available as FMC mezzanine cards.
The Pmod™ connectors are used to connect low I/O pin count peripherals to the DSP board. By using Pmod™ peripherals (available from Digilent, Analog Devices, Maxim, and others), the DSP system is easily expanded with a display, keyboard, WiFi, low sampling rate A/D and D/A converters.
