iWave Instrument Cluster Board

iWave Systems Technologies introduced their Instrument Cluster Board. The FPGA based hybrid instrument clusters feature analog gauges for speed, RPM, fuel/oil level, engine temperature and battery voltage display. The solution includes user manual, design document, technical specifications, Netlist for target device and comprehensive test environment with encrypted code. Optional deliverables include the test plan, RTL Verilog synthesizable code and time limited Netlist. The customization services include optimization of core with any peripherals, target hardware/system redesign and validation and customization services for board, FPGA and embedded software.
