Trenz Electronic TE0320 FPGA-based Industrial Micromodules

Trenz Electronic introduced the TE0320 family of FPGA-based industrial micromodules for harsh environments and pervasive deployment. The TE0320 micromodule featuers a Xilinx Spartan-3A-DSP FPGA, a USB 2.0 microcontroller, 128 MByte DDR RAM (32 bit wide), 4 MByte Flash memory for configuration and operation, and a switch-mode power supply for all on-board voltages. A large number of configurable I/Os are provided via standard board-to-board connectors. Customized versions, as well as modules with industrial-grade components are available on request.
