The carrier board delivered with the Application Kit ECUcore-1021 integrates a broad number of commonly used high-speed interfaces like Gigabit Ethernet, USB3.0, SATA3.0, PCI-Express, LVDS, DVI and SD-Card. In addition various other communication interfaces and user-input elements are available on the board, including CAN, RS485, RS232, PMOD, Arduino, keypad, scroll-wheel, audio, push buttons and LEDs. The delivered schematic diagram of the Application Carrier Board may serve as a base for own hardware designs and accelerates the development time significantly by eliminating typical pitfalls when it comes to the LS1021A chip configuration or power-supply design.
This vast variety of on-board peripherals is an ideal base for implementation of own IoT gateway applications. Supported by an industry-proven Linux version and up to 3 Gigabit Ethernet ports the Application Carrier Board integrates well in existing IT infrastructures. In addition it supports WLAN interface cards connected via MiniPCIe socked.
The on-board SD-Card as well as the mSATA socked allow for easy integration of mass-storage devices onto the Application Carrier Board.
For use in applications where user interaction is required, the Application Carrier Board offers an interface to connect LVDS capable LCD screens or a DVI socket for use with standard COTS monitor devices. A dedicated touch screen controller is available for connecting resistive touch screens and accessing the on-board ambient light sensor. A dedicated 4x4 keyboard matrix input on a standard 2.54mm pitch pin-header connector allows for interfacing user-specific keypads. Alternatively, you can also use common Human Interface Devices (HID) like keyboard or mouse connected via USB. In case you wish to use the ECUcore-1021 in networked HMI device applications, the on-board scroll wheel with click-input function is an ideal choice for an simplified input device for target visualizations where the use of a keypad or USB connected input devices are not favorable.
A single frequency beeper device is available for acoustic signaling. In addition, the Application Carrier Board offers a dedicated audio channel with stereo line-in/line-out.
To support an easy and standardized local I/O extension the Application Carrier Board offers one socket connector for interfacing Arduino Shields and two PMOD sockets, the standard interface to connect sensors from Analog Devices. A number of push-buttons, switches and LEDs, as well as a temperature sensor are already integrated on-board.
Users with higher demands in I/O functionality may extend functions using the on-board PCI-Express slot e.g. for connecting FPGA cards or use the available USB3.0 ports. At the same time common field bus interfaces like Ethernet, CAN or RS485 are available for remote I/O extension. Please contact us for supported field bus protocols such as POWERLINK, CANopen and/or Modbus.
To reliably support the huge number of interfaces on the Application Carrier Board with their respective voltage domains, a comprehensive industrial-grade power-supply circuitry, including power-fail detection, is integrated on the board. This can save you a great deal of effort when designing own devices based on the ECUcore-1021 System on Module.
The Application Kit includes an Application Carrier Board with pre-assembled ECUcore-1021 and heat-spreader plate. The DVD contains the development environment for C/C++ application development on the ECUcore-1021 pre-installed on a ready-to-use virtual machine (VMware). The delivered documentation include the Application Carrier Board schematic diagram and its Bill of Material (BOM), the components used have been selected for applications in industrial environments. The schematic diagram provides a start point for the development of own application specific boards. The user gets to know the software environment, can execute performance tests and can begin to write application software.
