The PATI is a highly integrated I/O Board in PC/104-Plus form factor. Build around the MPC555 Motorola PowerPCTM Processor and the PLX9056 PCI Bridge it brings the superb MPC555 peripherals to a standard PCI Interface.
With the possibilities for firmware update over the PCI bus, parameter passing via the on-board SDRAM, allowing the PATI to access the host memory via PCI busmaster access and various configurations options it is well suited for fast prototyping application.
A stand-alone mode allows the PATI to work without the host. Application developed and tested in a host environment can be executed on the PATI in the stand-alone mode without any code modification.
The MPC555 peripherals are available on 2 standard 50 pin 2.54 mm header which offers easy connections. It features 8 differential 10bit Analog/Digital channels, 32bit TPU channels, 2 serial interfaces and 2 CAN interfaces
