Design av en 32-bitars CardBus PC-Card baserad System Test Platform för SoCTRix Wireless LAN Transceivern (Swedish)
Today, wireless communications is used more then ever before. Wired systems are replaced with wireless versions. New methods and transmission standards are developed and tested. The purpose of this thesis is development of a flexible high-performance System Test Platformfor test of the SoCTRix Wireless LAN Transceiver.
The result is a Xilinx Virtex-II FPGA based System Test Platform board with CardBus PC Card interface to a computer. The hardware achieved has the following features:
- 8-layer PCB
- PCMCIA CardBus PC Card interface, enabling 133 MB/s data throughput
- 1M Gate Virtex-II FPGA with reprogrammable configuration memory
- Debugging via LEDs and Logic Analyzer connectors
- 2x SPI EEPROM
- 40 MHz system clock
- Easy connection of two daughter-boards
Specially designed for wireless transmitter development, can also be used for other computer related highperformance applications.
