CES720 – SWaP Embedded System
The CES720 (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 CES720 features a low-power x86 CPU tightly coupled to a high-performance Kintex-7 and FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC - VITA 57.1). The Kintex-7 410T 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 stand-alone 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 CES720 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 CES720 can be ordered with Windows 7 or Debian Linux. Embedded operating system options are available. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
