Extension boards

Rules: On this page, only a short description is provided, eventually with a picture. A specific page is available for each project with the details.

A number of extension boards are designed and made available to users. An evolving tcl file contain almost all the pins definitions for the FPGA4U extensions utilization.

Camera extensions

Some camera extension for the 20 pins connector:

- 128 x 101 pixels, B/W, global reset : Cam9630_c

The document CMOS Image interface is used to present the design project associated with this interface. Thus the design is actually not fully available on this site as it is an actual exercise for students.

Video/LCD Touch screen extensions for FPGA4U

An extension board has been designed by Joseph Tagg for Embedded Systems Courses. Full documentation is provided at Video_extension_for_FPGA4U. The board can be populated differently dependent on the final goal:

  • VGA connector and RGB D/A convertion
  • 2.5" QVGA 320x240 LCD
  • 3" QVGA 320x240 LCD and touche screen
  • MMC memory

Schematics: EXT_LCD_C (.pdf)

Instrumentation extensions

  • UB2 logic analyzer, and CAN, RS 232, i2c, Ethernet serial analyzer (in preparation, master project) (Schematics: EXT_TX2)

Navigation Module for FPGA4U

Extension board with a GPS receiver and an array or accelerometers/magnetometers (ENAC-TOPO project). Projects aiming to investigate various aspects of indoor/outdoor navigation, are on going. More information here.

Wireless Sensor Node Extension for FPGA4U

Small Wireless Sensor Node extension board based on an MSP430F5437 microcontroller and a CC1101 RF module, both from TI.
