For right angle board-to-board optical interconnections, when the daughter card is inserted, the locking mechanism assures a zero air gap interconnect between adjoining ferrules, allowing sufficient insertion force flex to be compatible with adjoining electronic pin connectors on the daughter board
. This configuration assures good coupling while avoiding a hard stop insertion of the board.
The new Virtex-II Pro daughter board
incorporates a Xilinx XC2VP7-6FG456C FPGA that contains 11,088 logic cells arranged in 4,928 CLB slices.
Some cards can also be upgraded with daughter boards
, which plug into them, for added capabilities.
A flexible cable connects the peripheral module with up to 8 daughter boards
each with a DB9 serial port and power output selectable for 5V or 12V.
The Signal Analysis PICtail Daughter Board
and accompanying PC software, when plugged into the PICkit 1 Flash Starter Kit, enables engineers to analyze analog signals as processed by Microchip's low pin-count PIC 8- bit microcontrollers.
A 16-pin CBC51100 module is included as a daughter board
, providing the EH functions, battery management, and 100?Ah of solid-state rechargeable energy storage.
The MCP795XX SPI RTCC PICtail(TM) plus daughter board
(part # AC164147) will be available for purchase in February 2012, at microchipDIRECT (http://www.microchip.com/get/FU5C).
Microchip Technology announced the availability of the ZeroG Wireless ZG2100M and ZG2101M Wi-Fi Modules, ZeroG IEEE 802.11 Development Kit for Explorer 16 (part # AC164136) and the ZeroG Wi-Fi PICtail/PICtail Plus Daughter Board
(part # AC 164136-2).
In a multidrop backplane design, for example, each daughter board
would receive data relative to a specific clock signal.
This evaluation kit includes the PIC32MZ EC Starter Kit board, a PHY daughter board
, an Ethernet patch cord, and two USB cables (a Standard-A to Micro-B and a Standard-A to Mini-B).
For the implementation and evaluation of CAN, Microchip's CAN(TM)/LIN PICtail(TM)/PICtail Plus Daughter Board
(part # AC164130-2) may be used in conjunction with its PIC18 Explorer or Explorer 16 development boards.
An Innovation Station includes three standard peripheral boards and one FPGA daughter board
