APF51

Description

The APF51 is a reduced size processor board benefiting from a highly competitive price/performance ratio.

Fitted with a 800 MHz i.MX51x processor, 64 MB to 512 MB LPDDR RAM, 256 MB to 32 GB SLC FLASH, a 10/100Mbits Ethernet port, 2 USB 2.0 high speed ports, and one USB OTG port, it is easily integrated into an embedded system thanks notably to its regulators and on board PHYs (Ethernet & USB).

As usual at Armadeus systems, this board is equipped with a FPGA, here a Spartan 6A XC6SLX9, which increases considerably the hardware fonctionalities of the module.

Note: no external debugger (BDI, JTAG) is required. A simple RS232 connection is enough for "low-cost" development. A Linux debugger is available (GDB).
