ECUcore-5484 - a insert-ready 32-bit Embedded SBC Module with Freescale MCF5484 processor
The SBC module ECUcore-5484 is a very compact, insert-ready, high-performance single board computer subassembly module, based on the 32-bit Freescale MCF5484 microcontroller.
Designed to performance, the SBC module incorporates all high-speed components on an extremely compact, low-EMI multilayer PCB. The target specific base board holds the slower clocked peripheral components and thus, can be kept "simple" and less critical in PCB design. The embedded module has a single-voltage power supply of 3.3V and a digital I/O expansion interface to connect custom peripherals.
The SBC module ECUcore-5484 has a powerful on-board CPLD (MACH XO 640) or FPGA (ECP2-6 / ECP2-20) . It allows for implementation of basic digital input and output lines as well as highly complex peripheral units. Apart from basic I/Os, the standard version of the CPLD as well as the FPGA also contains one freely configurable high-speed counter and an extremely powerful PWM/PTO unit. Both, the VHDL sources of the CPLD as well as of the FPGA and the C source code of the Linux I/O driver, are available with the Driver Development Kit (DDK). The on-board CPLD/FPGA of the SBC module provides the most flexible way to adapt the I/O configuration to specific needs. Thus, proprietary algorithms for pre-processing of process data could be "outsourced" to the hardware level. In addition to memory mapped interfaces, the DDK also supports the usage of standard I/O extension busses like I2C and SPI. Hence, the user is able to adapt the I/O configuration freely and easily to various application-requirements.
Thanks to enhanced firmware, the same hardware module is also available as a Linux-based Hard-PLC for the usage in OEM applications. This so-called SYS TEC PLC core module - PLCcore-5484 is supporting C/C++ as well as textual and graphical programming methods according to IEC 61131-3.
