Embedded Board Targets Digital Communications and Imaging

12/4/2002 - Traquair Data Systems announced immediate availability of an industrial temperature version of the micro-line C6211CPU embedded DSP board, providing full functionality for the -40°C to +85°C industrial temperature range. The new option extends the capabilities provided by the micro-line family of embedded DSP products for commercial and industrial OEM applications.

The industrial temperature version of the C6211CPU (Traquair Part Number M-C6211CPU-150-32-I) uses an extended temperature qualified board design and is populated with industrial temperature compliant components capable of operating with case temperatures in the range of -40°C to +85°C. The board combines a TMS320C6211 DSP Processor clocked at 150 MHz to provide up to 1200MIPS of performance, 32MBytes of external SDRAM, and 512 KBytes FLASH ROM, all in a small 98mm x 67mm form factor. Users have access to an open bus interface for hardware expansion, two TMS320C6000™ McBSP ports, a programmable digital I/O interface, and a FLASH file system that allows the user to store and handle FLASH application programs easily via RS232 from a PC or laptop.

The open bus interface allows OEM developers to integrate the C6211CPU as a mezzanine resource within their own hardware environment, or have the ability to add their own memory mapped peripheral hardware as vertically stacking daughter modules. The flexible architecture allows the DSP board to be enhanced with up to seven additional peripheral resources, each controlled and accessed by the DSP processor via its 20-bit address and 32-bit data busses. A carrier board is optionally available, providing developers with a ready to use desktop development environment capability.

“We are mindful of the need to provide our OEM customers with properly qualified extended temperature options for their industrial applications,” commented Steve Bradshaw, President and Technical Director of Traquair. “Extended temperature support is an important step forward for the micro-line embedded DSP product family.”

The micro-line C6211CPU-150-32-I is manufactured according to ISO 9001:2000 standards and is CE certified.
