KAD/MAT/101 Microcontroller-Based Module
The KAD/MAT/101 allows you to run your own programs based on a dual-core C6000DSP+ARM9 microcontroller. It provides high-performance DSP functions in a widely used architecture. You can develop C-based programs using a standard Integrated Development Environment (IDE).
The KAD/MAT/101 offers the functionality of a modern microcontroller and DSP and it facilitates access to the backplane so you can read parameters from and/or write results to other modules. These features allow you to perform a range of complex and computing-intensive real-time operations (such as Fast Fourier Transforms [FFT]) to any of the parameters available on the backplane.
DSP programming is facilitated by the use of a C674x DSP library. This library includes C-callable, general-purpose signal-processing routines that are typically used in computationally intensive real-time applications. The Software Development Kit (SDK) comprises of a suite of tools used to develop and debug user applications and includes many other features such as a source code editor, compiler, debugger, profiler, and simulator.
When using the KAD/MAT/101, the user object code is developed using the Texas Instruments (TI) tool set on a Linux Virtual Machine (VM) running on a Windows operating system. The resulting binary file can be downloaded to the KAD/MAT/101 without the need for additional equipment or third-party software.
Aerospace Instrumentation Brochure
Modern aerospace instrumentation systems can be highly complex, and it can be difficult to know how to meet program needs. It’s not unusual for requirements to change during a campaign and cause significant delays, and data must be captured reliably no matter what – otherwise expensive additional flights will be needed or months of program data could be lost. Read our brochure to learn how you can reduce your risk with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions.
