Case Histories

Beside offering off-the-shelf modules, also called System-On-Module, DAVE Embedded Systems provides technical consultancy service related to embedded systems. Particularly, we design embedded systems on specific customer's request as following case studies demonstrate.

Simultaneous dual IP video decoding H264

In this video is shown a simple video streaming application where 2 video streaming are delivered to the target platform. On the target platform the 2 streams are received, decoded and played simultaneously on dual LVDS screens. The target board is a NXp i.MX6 mounted on DAVE Embedded Sysrtems SBC Axel

BORA Xpress supports two different Zynq part numbers: XC7Z015 and XC7Z030. XC7Z015 integrates GTP transceivers whose maximum data rate is 6.25 Gbps. XC7Z030 integrates GTX transceivers instead. In this case maximum data rate is 6.6 Gbps.
Actual maximum attainable data rate is determined by several factors, many of which are related to the carrier board design. One important factor that lies in the middle of the SoM/carrier stacking is the connectors mating.
This Technical Report describes the tests that have been performed on BORA Xpress's serial transceivers with the Vivado 2014.4 Serial I/O Analyzer and IBERT IP. These are valuable tools are very useful to provide a first order approximation of the characterization of such a mating.

DAVE Embedded Systems' BORA XILINX ZYNQ SoM with Lumineq Display

DAVE Embedded Systems with Lumineq Display (BENEQ) has developed a proof of concept display solution for industrial applications. The solution includes DAVE Embedded Systems’ BORA System On Module. BORA board is designed with XILINX Zynq dual core ARM processor with FPGA. BORA board provides flexibility and CPU power which allows the end customer to build other applications along with the display. DAVE Embedded Systems is the first company to provide such an integrated solution for applications which require clear display in the presence of sun and with wide viewing angle. This solution can be customized for various target markets. This evaluation board is a development platform for the end customer to build their own applications which uses real Hi Rel components like BORA board and Lumineq Display.
