The CES820 (Compact Embedded System) is a standalone, small form factor embedded system designed to provide a complete and generic processing platform for data acquisition, signal processing, and communication. With Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) in mind, the CES820 features a low-power x86 CPU tightly coupled to a high-performance Kintex UltraScale FPGA and an FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC - VITA 57.1). The UltraScale FPGA provides a flexible and powerful processing backbone for interfacing to the FMC site, CPU, and DDR3 SDRAM, with plenty of room left over for high-performance Digital Signal Processing needs.
The system is ideal for development and prototyping purposes, and it can serve as a customizable standalone lab instrument or a deployed embedded solution for applications such as UAVs. FMCs can be chosen from 4DSP's extensive portfolio or from a third-party vendor. The seemingly modest CES820 provides high-performance embedded processing and computing with flexible IO in a compact footprint for applications where Size, Weight and Power are the primary concerns.
The CES820 can be ordered with Windows 7 or Debian Linux. Embedded operating system options are available. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
