The first Constellation development board to provide support for a one million logic gate APEX family PLD, the Constellation-20KE is fabricated in the compact (3.60 3 3.80 3 0.60), industry-standard PC/104 form factor. In addition, the development board includes ISA and USB interfaces as well as flash programmable memory. This powerful development board can be re-used in a variety of product development tasks, such as rapid prototyping, hardware acceleration, and custom test equipment.
Constellation products improve designer productivity by reducing simulation times. Constellation's ISA and USB connectivity allow designs to be directly downloaded from a PC into the PLD and then simulated using real-time hardware.
Constellation can be used as a Digital Pattern Generator, Bit Error Rate Tester, or Vector Waveform Generator. The board can also be embedded in production or custom test fixtures to automate and reduce the cost of testing.
