FMC-IOT Internet-of-Things Daughter Card

FMC-IOT daughter card provides a set of peripherals and interfaces commonly used in embedded designs and being the key enabling Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications. There are various wireless communication standards used in such designs and this board enables prototyping with any of the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, Sub-GHz RF devices as well as wired Ethernet and USB. It extends functionality of Aldec’s Main FPGA boards if given interfaces are not available on them or if they are required to be connected to another FPGA on the main board. Typical applications for this daughter card are ASIC/SoC physical prototyping, In Circuit Emulation (ICE) or evaluation and prototyping of embedded and IoT designs.
