Advanced System Development Platform for the Network Edge
The KONDOR AX - Advanced System Development Board is a new ECP5™ development platform for low power applications at the network edge including HetNet, Small Cells, Industrial IoT gateways and IP Cameras.
The heart of this board is a combination of the Lattice ECP5™, a low power, small form factor FPGA bringing flexible interface connectivity and high-performance DSP for image filtering and data analytics, and the Freescale i.MX 6 Solo, a versatile discrete CPU with Linux OS support for system control.
The supported Linux BSP includes a Linux kernel with device drivers, Applications/Services, Libraries, GNU Tools (compilers, linkers, ...) as well as Deployment mechanisms. The board works out of the box as a standalone single-board computer.
All of the features together enable users to shorten the time to market and deploy specific, innovative and cost-effective network edge designs with low power consumption.
Key feature set
- Low Power Consumption
- Rich set of interfaces
- Linux OS with applications and libraries
- HetNet & Small Cells
- Industrial IoT
- Cameras & Displays
The KONDOR AX - Advanced System Development Board is designed around a high value Lattice ECP5 FPGA, complemented with a highly versatile discrete Freescale's i.MX6 processor.
A low power ECP5 FPGA features:
- 84.000 LUTs
- 365 IO pins
- 4 SERDES channels (In/out)
- 400 MHz LPDDR3 Memory Support
These features facilitate flexible connectivity with standards such as CPRI, JESD204B and PCI Express, along with high performance DSP for filtering and image processing.
The versatile i.MX6 control CPU integrates:
- ARM® Cortex™-A9 1 GHz
- 512 KB L2 cache
- PCIe 2.0 (1 lane)
Joined with the ECP5 FPGA, the i.MX6 manages a rich set of external connections and industry-standard interfaces such as HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet, USB OTG, Camera, FMC, LVDS and GPIO.
The resulting solution brings together the power of the FPGA-driven processing and interfacing with a large existing base of applications and libraries on Linux OS available for the i.MX6 ARM processor.
