The Q5 processor card offers the following key features:
- Almost 5 years of proven performance in orbit
- Xilinx Vertex II Pro (with integral PowerPC 405 core)
- Memory: 32 or 64 Mbytes SDRAM, 16Mbytes of Flash
- Power: typ. 1.1W @ 3.3V
The following Q5 board stack configurations are available:
The Embedded Deployment Module (EDM) is a Q5 daughterboard that provides power, an SD card socket, 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, as well as analog and digital I/O, all in a PC/104 form factor. It measures 96 x 90 x 26 mm, has a mass of 78 g (94 g when combined with a Q5) and dissipates an average of 1.4 W (2.5 W including the Q5).
The Q5-NET-DDK board stack includes a Q5 and two daughterboards: the Q5-Net card and the Q5 Development Daughterboard Kit (DDK). The DDK is the ideal host platform for prototyping Q5-based software and logic applications; it provides power and easy access to Q5 digital and analog I/O lines and serial interfaces via screw-terminal blocks and DB9 connectors. The Q5-Net card provides 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, USB, and SD Card storage for rapid software development.
Simulink users can perform model-based development of real-time applications for the Q5 EDM and Q5-Net-DDK stack using the Q5/Xenomai Embedded Real-time Target for Real-Time Workshop.
