Embedded Board for Data Acquisition and Networking Transfer
BAB 550 is an example for a complex baord for an embedded project. It has as PowerPC CPU with 900 MHz MHz (750 GX), dual 100 Mb networking, and a DMA controller connected to an ESSI serial interface, used by some DSPs. The task to manage was in this project, to transfer sensor data into main memory - this had to be achieved completely in hardware. The CPU has the task to send this data vie Ethernet to remote control computers.
- CPU PowerPC 750 GX at 900 MHz
- 2 * network 100 Mb
- ESSI interface in FPGA
- Application-specific form factor and power supply
