C641xCPU (Legacy *)

TMS320C641x DSP Board with Spartan-3E FPGA

* Legacy Product: Established product with extended availability for our long-term commercial customers, but not recommended for new designs. Please visit our home page for the latest active products.

micro-line C641xCPU DSP boards combine an integer TMS320C6410, TMS320C6413, or TSM320C6418 DSP processor, with a Xilinx Spartan 3E FPGA, SDRAM, FLASH boot program EPROM, and the micro-line bus interface.

Designed for system developers looking to reduce time to market while lowering total cost, the C641xCPU series of boards lets developers maximize software creativity and minimize high density, high frequency hardware design for their industrial embedded DSP and FPGA applications.

An optional micro-line power supply functions as a base for a micro-line stack of DSP, data acquisition and I/O boards. It delivers power to the micro-line stack and provides additional services such as RS-232 communications connector, a reset button and a power-on indicator. OEM developers may wish to mount the micro-line stack on their own hardware.

Interfacing Options

A rich suite of peripheral & I/O options are provided for interfacing with micro-line DSP boards. These include serial and parallel digital I/O, 400MBit/sec IEEE 1394 FireWire communications, and direct access to the micro-line bus for memory mapped peripheral hardware design and integration.
