EBV Announces Caribou Board for Flexible Industrial Communications and Control

(PresseBox) (Poing/Munich, )
EBV Elektronik, an Avnet (NYSE: AVT) company and the leading specialist in EMEA semiconductor distribution, has announced the Caribou board as a development and evaluation platform for industrial communications. It is based on an OMAP L138 / AM1808 ARM® microprocessor from Texas Instruments, together with an Altera® Cyclone® III FPGA and analog interfaces from Texas Instruments.

A range of different field buses and interfaces for industrial communications are available for developers, including serial-based field buses. These include PROFIBUS and IO-Link as well as real-time Ethernet field buses such as EtherCAT, SERCOS-III, PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, Ethernet POWERLINK and IEEE1588. Encoder interfaces such as EnDat, BISS and HIPERFACE DSL can also be implemented. Featuring additional analog components such as analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), digital-to-analog converters (DACs) and pulse-width modulators (PWMs), they provide interfaces to control systems, co-ordinate converters and output stages.

Rudy Van Parijs, Vice President Technical Development at EBV Elektronik, comments: "The Caribou board provides developers with a special evaluation platform for industrial applications in the areas of programmable logic controllers (PLCs), control systems, sensors, motors with integrated controllers, and industrial bus interfaces. Applications also include 3-phase solar inverters and pitch controllers within the field of renewable energies, and test & measurement equipment."
