Fpg Eye

FPG-EYE is a powerful prototyping board that allows to implement complex applications by using the Mico32 softcore and the flexibility of the FPGA logic. The board includes external RAM and Flash memories to store big amount of data, and it also includes Ethernet, serial, and 802.15.4 radio for wired and wireless connections.
The onboard CMOS camera coupled with the FPGA flexibility allows you to run vision algorithms in real time, and to mix hardware and software implementations.
The board fully supports ERIKA Enterprise using the Lattice Mico32 port, and has direct support for the CAL Dataflow Language.
The product comes with a set of demo applications and pre-built images allow developing new peripherals in few minutes!

Hardware

  • FPGA Lattice LFXP2-17E-5QN208C, with 17k LUT.
  • The FPGA hosts a complete system-on-a-chip powered by a 50 MHz Lattice Mico32 softcore and all the peripheral controllers, or a design of your choice.
  • 512 kB 16 bit 12 ns SRAM, for code and data.
  • 32 MB 16 bit 133 MHz SDRAM, used for storing CMOS camera images and data.
  • 2 MB Serial Flash, used for storing code and persistent data to be loaded into the SRAM at boot time.
  • High Efficiency Switching power supply LM2575, which accepts 5-28V AC or 7-40V DC.
  • 2 RJ45 connectors, 12 LEDs, 8 switches, 2 button, 1 real-time clock, MOSFET switches to power-off peripherals, and 3rd-party plugin / Display connector.
  • 72mm DIN bar size, also compatible with TEKO plastic cases “TK series” (e.g., TK22, TK33, TK44).
  •  

Four plugin boards are also available:

  • Ethernet Plugin Board (*) - up to 10 Mb/s using an SPI ENC28J60 controller.
  • Radio Board (*) - with a Microchip MRF24J40MB 802.15.4 Transceiver.
  • Serial Board - with RS232-TTL voltage conversion.
  • Camera Board - providing a color CMOS Camera (HV7131GP), with 640x480 resolution at 30 fps, plus a light sensor.

(*) Ethernet and Radio plugin boards are mutually exclusive.

 

Software
