Industry Pack FPGA Boards
Industry Pack FPGA Modules
Acromag’s Industry Pack FPGA modules feature a user-customizable Altera Cyclone-II®EP2C20 FPGA. These modules allow users to develop and store their own instruction sets in the FPGA for a variety of adaptive computing applications.
User application programs are downloaded through the JTAG port or via the IP bus directly into the FPGA. A pre-programmed internal CPLD facilitates initialization by acting as the bus controller during power-up and while the program is downloading. This bus controller is limited to functions necessary for power-up and downloading. After the program downloads, the FPGA takes control of the IP bus and the CPLD disables.
Common FPGA applications include specialized communication systems over RS422/485 networks, test fixture simulation of signals over TTL-switched lines, and analysis of acquired data using advanced mathematical formulas such as those developed with MathWorks® MatLab® software.
