The development system consists of a baseboard which provides connectors for the main module interfaces. All 200 module SODIMM pins are accessible as header locations. There are connectors for Ethernet, USB Host and Device, 2x RS-232, RS-485 and CAN, as well as an SD Card. An LVDS port is provided for flexible display connectivity, as well as a parallel RGB port for specific touch-screens. Audio in/out, SATA and JTAG are also available.

For production purposes, a custom baseboard is created from the supplied Mainboard-7 PDF schematics. We are happy to offer baseboard design and manufacture as a service, as well as checking of a customer’s own baseboard design.

Mainboard-7SD

Mainboard-7SD is a new version of Mainboard-7 which includes 1.8v level shifters, so that modules with 1.8V I/O processors, such as the new TRITON-TXSD, and some older modules can be accommodates. The two baseboards are identical except for this additional capability of Mainboard-7SD, which therefore ships as standard with TRITON-TXSD.
