|AcroPack APA7-200 Module|
Wixom, MI: Acromag’s new APA7-200 series provides a user-customizable FPGA on an AcroPack mezzanine module. The module plugs into a connector on an AcroPack carrier to add up to 48 TTL or 24 EIA-485/422 I/O signals or a mix of both types. Mix and match I/O combinations in a single slot for embedded applications running on Linux®, Windows®, or VxWorks® operating systems. APA7-200 modules begin at $900 each along with a recommended one-time purchase of the $310 Engineering Design kit software.
The APA7-200 offers a wide operating range of -40 to 85°C. Reconfiguration of the FPGA is possible via a direct download into the Flash configuration memory over the PCIe bus. The on-board 32Mb Quad Serial Flash memory loaded with configuration data allows automatic configuration of the FPGA on power-up.
