The MPL3E module is a general purpose FPGA module intended for system-on-FPGA designs.
The module contains the basic on-board components normally needed for embedded systems,
such as high-speed DDR SDRAM, FLASH, watch-dog and a power supply. The integration of the FPGA with the standard components on a module, significantly simplifies the design and multilayer PCB layout effort required to build a system on FPGA.
The programmable nature of the FPGA makes it possible to choose to implement the functions needed in the system, including custom designed interfaces commonly found in embedded systems. It also allows the systems to be upgraded should new requirements arise during the
product life. Building and integrating all the system functions onto a single module, simplifies the hardware design and makes it more robust.
Measuring only 49x61 mm (1.93x2.40 ) the module connects to a base PCB using two quality 120-pin 0.8 mm pitch connectors, carrying the power and IO signals.
