Spark 102: Based on Altera Cyclone® V SOC
Low-cost ARM and FPGA SoC with optional ready-to-use Industrial Ethernet support
The Spark-102 is low cost, ready to use industrial embedded System-On-Module (SoM) based on Altera Cyclone® V SOC.
The Spark-102 combines a high performance ARM using one or two Cortex-A9 cores and a configurable FPGA.
For industrial automation, the Spark-102 offers an optional Industrial Ethernet core that will reduce R&D development time significantly. The core includes dedicate Ethernet ports, Industrial Ethernet slave IP by Softing Industrial Automation GmbH (www.softing.com ) that supports multiple Industrial Ethernet standards..
The Spark-102 uses a standard SMARC® interface, which is supported by key industry vendors, and ensures adherence to strict technical specifications as well as compatibility with other vendor’s platforms.
- Low cost beats the make option!
- Slash industrial automation R&D costs by offering a build-in Industrial Ethernet core
- SMARC-compliant for easy interoperability and extensibility
- Accelerated development using a Shiratech value pack that includes plug and play software and sample applications, a development board and extensive documentation
- Guarantee your product life cycle with a 10+ year product longevity policy
