Motion Control Kit for Intel FPGAs

Feb 21, 2017

Enclustra Universal Drive IP Core Evaluation Kit

The tried-and-tested Enclustra BLDC Evaluation Kit is now also available for Intel FPGAs. In addition to an evaluation license for the Universal Drive Controller IP Core from a Mercury SA1 SoC module, which is based on an Intel Cyclone® V SoC, the Kit also includes a Mercury+ PE1-200 base board, an FMC-DR2 power electronics card and a Maxon BLDC Motor with MR encoder

Set lock times for high and low-side switches so that they are accurate to just a few nanoseconds or PWM and control frequencies to an accuracy of a few hundred Kilohertz without any jitter: all of this is possible thanks to our Universal Drive Controller IP Core, which supports DC, BLDC and 2 and 3-phase stepper motors.

PCI Express to Wishbone Bridge

Feb 14, 2017

We were asked to migrate the SPI slave interfaces of an existing FPGA design to PCIe interfaces, providing massively more bandwidth, while maintaining the internal FPGA Wishbone communication infrastructure and as much as possible of the embedded software controlling the SPI masters. To do this, we replaced the SPI slave interfaces with a multi-function PCIe endpoint with attached Wishbone masters, and mapped the new FPGA design to an Altera Cyclone V GX device.

On the embedded software side, the low-level SPI driver was replaced by a custom PCIe driver, emulating the same behavior. This development provided our customer with a smooth transition to the latest FPGA technology, and delivers the performance required for next-generation systems.

Enclustra Mars XU3 Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC Module

We've just got our hands on the PCBs for the Mars XU3 Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ module, have shipped them off to assembly, and are eager to get them back in a few weeks. The XU3 comes in the extremely compact and well-established SO-DIMM form factor, and is optimized for applications that require the greatest processing power possible in the smallest of spaces, without having to make any compromises when it comes to functionality.

On offer are up to 154,000 systems logic cells, 108 user I/Os, 6 ARM® processors, a GPU, up to 4 GByte of ultra-fast DDR4 SDRAM, 64 MByte QSPI flash memory, 4 GByte eMMC flash memory and Gigabit Ethernet and USB 2.0/3.0 ports, all on a surface area measuring just 67.6 × 30 mm. Additionally, in order to ensure that the design-in process is as simple as possible, the module only requires a single 3.3 V feed for the power supply.

Enclustra at Embedded World 2017

 

From the 14th to the 16th of March 2017, the Nuremburg Exhibition Centre will be dedicated to all things related to embedded systems. Enclustra will once again be present at Embedded World, with two stands, together with AntMicro, the specialist for embedded software. Mark the dates on your calendar and come visit us at Stand 121 in Hall 4A or Stand 101 in Hall 1 at the world's largest trade fair and congress dedicated to embedded technologies.

New year, new announcements

Enclustra Mars MA3 Altera® Cyclone® V SoC Module

 

We’re ready to get our teeth stuck into 2017, and we hope you are too. To get the ball rolling, we’re happy to announce that the development of the Mars MA3, our first Altera Cyclone V SoC module in the compact Mars form factor, is now underway.

The Mars MA3 system-on-chip (SoC) module combines Altera's Cyclone V SoC device with fast DDR3L SDRAM, quad SPI flash, a Gigabit Ethernet PHY and an RTC, and thus forms a complete and powerful embedded processing system. The SO-DIMM form factor allows space-saving hardware designs, as well as quick and simple integration of the module into the target application.

The icing on the cake: we offer a comprehensive design-in support and Linux board support package in the form of the Enclustra build environment. Nice.
