The IGLOO2 Evaluation Kit makes it easier to develop embedded devices for motor control, system management, industrial automation or high-speed serial I/O applications based on the IGLOO2 FPGAs. These FPGAs are notable for their strong feature integration, low power consumption, exceptional reliability, and proven security.
The IGLOO2 Evaluation Kit provides a platform to develop transceiver I/O-based FPGA designs for PCI Express- and Gigabit Ethernet-based systems. The board is compliant with the small form-factor PCIe format, allowing quick prototyping and evaluation using any desktop PC or laptop with a PCIe slot.
The kit enables developers to:
- Develop and test PCI Express Gen2 x1 lane designs
- Test signal quality of the FPGA transceiver using full-duplex SERDES SMA pairs
- Measure the low power consumption of the IGLOO2 FPGA
- Quickly create a working PCIe link
The board includes an RJ45 interface to 10/100/1000 Ethernet, 512 Mbits of LPDDR, 64 Mbits of SPI Flash, and USB-UART connections as well as I2C, SPI and GPIO headers.
The RDK-919Q is a development board for the INN3949CQ, a member of the InnoSwitch3-AQ family of power conversion ICs. Operating from an input-voltage range of 50 V to 1000 V dc, ideal for use in 800 V bus systems, the board provides an isolated power supply for loads of up to 60 W, at an output voltage of 24 V. Conversion efficiency is 82%.
The RDK-919Q works in hot conditions: at 85°C, it can provide a continuous 20 W output with an input at 1,000 V dc.
The board offers all the benefits of secondary-side control with the simplicity of primary-side regulation: it is insensitive to transformer variation, and provides extremely fast transient response which is independent of load timing. The maximum output ripple voltage is 240 mV.
The STEVAL-LLL014V1 evaluation kit features the SPC582B60E1 32-bit automotive-grade microcontroller for controlling the ALED7709 LED driver via an I2C interface. The main board can be configured and controlled via a Mini-USB connection to a PC running the STSW-LLL014GUI software. The kit also includes an LED board with four strings of 10 LEDs.
