pico SOM Card Cyclone II Altera FPGA

Typical applications of this SOM are in the “Smart Core” of smart subsystem such as motors, sensors position, graphic leds matrix, communication controller in digital, analog and power signals, management of setup parameters, command, status and faults.


In the typical application, the SOM module is hosted on the application board such as a doughter. The application board must host the application interface circuities and the physical interfaces of the SOM communication channel, such as RS4222/RS485, USB, CAN and so on.
