SBS Technologies, represented in Australia by Metromatics Pty Ltd , has introduced a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) processor for PC/104 Plus systems, the Tsunami PC104.
The Tsunami PC104 architecture is integrated with SBS' Wave FPGA software tool kit, which offers developers a platform for easy application development.
Aimed at leveraging FPGA processing into small embedded systems, this platform is ideal for mobile cart based systems, machine sensor and control I/O applications.
The PC/104 Plus processor includes Altera Stratix FPGAs on a 32bit/33MHz PCI interface, with enough memory and high bandwidth data paths to make full use of the outstanding processing power of the Stratix chip.
The Wave FPGA software tool kit provides API, drivers, memory controller, source code and application examples.
The Tsunami PC104 is one in a family of FPGA processors and I/O modules provided by SBS Technologies. Choose from PCI, PC/104 Plus form factors or select EP1S25 or EP1S40 FPGAs, all operating in a common Wave software development environment for Windows XP/2000.
