Mercury Code

The Mercury Code IV is based on the latest generation of the Altera® low cost FPGAs Cyclone® V

The DB5CEA7 is the fourth generation of DBC industrial development boards. The latest version is based on the Altera Cyclone V Low cost FPGA 5CEFA7F27C7N. Two DDR3 memory banks are connected by a 16 bit width using the hard Memory Controller IP of the FPGA and a 8 bit width using a soft memory controller in the same I/O Bank. Several Industrial peripherals are implemented like Dual Ethernet (10/100Mbit), Dual CAN Transceiver, quad RS485 and RS232. A LVDS Based TFT interface is implemented, 8 User LEDs, 4 Buttons and a Navigation key. For extension 32 GPIO Pins are available for 3.3 V and 16 GPIOs with selectable IO Voltage. Additional 16 Channels 24V I/O are provided for direct implementation into PLC Systems. For Industrial Communication, IPs and protocol stacks for the Mercury Code board are available via several partner companies.

DB5CGXFC7 Cyclone V development board

The DB5CGXFC7 Board is based on the Altera Cyclone® V GX Device providing PCIe and SFP cages for the transceivers, 32 bit DDR3 memory and a QSPI device for active serial configuration. Two 100 Mbit Ethernet Phys and one Gigabit Phy is available for communication purposes, as well as two CAN transceivers and two RS485 transceivers. 43 GPIO signals are available on pin headers, 4 button, a Dip-Switch and 8 LEDs are available for debug purposes. Host connection can be done with the implemented embedded USB-Blaster™ II or via the normal JTAG connector.

DB4CGX15

Altera's Cyclone IV GX family is the first low-cost, high-volume FPGA family with integrated PCIe Hard IP

The DB4CGX15 is the ideal starting point for low-cost, high-volume FPGA applications requiring the PCIe interface based on Altera's EP4CGX15BF14C6N device. The board provides 24 user I/Os, which can connect to user specific add-on boards. Furthermore, the DB4CGX15 offers on-board memory that enables the user to run Nios™ II applications. EBV provides DB4CGX15 reference designs for Nios II and PCIe. Together with the on-board USB-Blaster, the DB4CGX15 offers a highly flexible out-of-the-box solution for your first low-cost PCIe design on an FPGA.

 

DB_Start_4CE10 Development Board

Low-Cost Cyclone IV E FPGA starter kit, based on a 10,000 LE device

The DB_Start_4CE10 is a powerful platform for design evaluations based on Altera™ Cyclone™ IV FPGAs. The board is easy to use and provides SDRAM memory, embedded USB-Blaster and pin headers for customer peripheral adaption. The on-board USB-Blaster of the Cyclone IV E starter kit can be used to configure the FPGA, to program the EPCS configuration device, to use the Signal-Tap logic analyser or to download and debug software (along with the NIOS™ IDE, Integrated Development Environment). The board can be powered over USB. Just connect the USB cable to your PC and you can start working with the board.

SoCrates

SoCrates is a starter kit based on the new Altera SoC

The SoC integrates a dual-core ARM Cyclone®V FPGA with a dual-Cortex™A9 Hard Processor System (HPS). The HPS provides the processor core and several peripherals. SoCrates provides a subset of the peripherals like Ethernet, USB, SPI, I2C, UART, SDCard and GPIO. A 32 bit DDR3 Memory is used together with a QSPI Flash as a BootOption, together with the SD Card interface. The FPGA can be configured using a second QSPI Flash. The FPGA I/O Pins are connected to several connectors, providing 3.3 V I/O and LVDS I/O Standard. A special LVDS connector is available to connect the EBV Observer CMOS Sensor Board to SoCrates. On the Bottom of the board, a TFT/Touch-display with an LVDS-interface can be connected.

FalconEye 3 Level Inverter

For 3-level inverters, EBV Elektronik offers the reference platform FalconEye as a quickly implemented solution

The FalconEye 3-Level Reference Design provides a 3-phase – 3-level design for 10kW inverters that can be used in several applications like UPS, Smart Grid Inverters or high performance drive applications. The kit is designed as a block based system that comes completely with source code (available under NDA) and is ideal as a starting point for 3-level applications. Main Technologies used: Infineon for the IGBT Power Stages, Broadcom for the gate driver and ΣΔ-ADC devices and Intel for the control part.

FalconEye FPGA

FalconEye FPGA is a motor control reference design, which enables an easy entry into highly efficient FPGA-based motor control

The FalconEye FPGA is ideally suitable for brushless AC and induction motors. FalconEye FPGA Motor Control is real time VHDL on hardware and a 'C' based software solution running on NiosII. The modular FalconEye board with PFC (Power Factor Correction) is used for controlling and/or regulating brushless synchronous and induction motors. FalconEye from EBV offers developers enormous potential benefits, ranging from huge energy savings to high-precision control options and significant improvement in EMI behaviour. At present, FalconEye is optimised for controlling brushless direct current motors (BLDC). The board can be easily converted for use with alternating current motors (BLAC), switched reluctance motors (SR) and induction motors (IM).
