Each edition of X2C holds ready-to-use Demo Applications for a set of evaluation boards listed below. All basic features required for rapid prototyping of control schemes are included. Simply open the Xcos model of the respective Demo Application and follow the instructions in the included manual for having your code generated.
The BeagleBone Black is a low-cost, community-supported development platform for professional developers and hobbyists. It is powered by a hefty AM335X 1GHz Cortex-A8 processor. A sound package of connectivity options rounds off this piece of hardware.
ChipCAD / Microchip
ChipCAD released a special X2C Development Board! It comes with either a 16bit dsPIC33EP256MC502 / 70MHz / 256kB Flash / 32kB RAM or with a 32bit PIC32MX170F256B / 50MHz /256kB Flash /64kB RAM processor onboard.
The STM32 Discovery Kit with STM32F051R8 processor is supported. The USB interface is used for power supply and can be used for programming and debugging.
NOTE: Early revisions of this board do not feature a (virtual) serial interface via USB port. In this case, for using the communication functionality implemented within our demo project, a USB-to-3.3V-TTL converter cable (e.g. the FTDI TTL-232R-RPI cable or the Adafruit 954 cable) is required.
The connection setup is as follows:
- Rx-wire to board pin “PA9”
- Tx-wire to board pin “PA10”
- Ground-wire to any available “GND” board pin
The STM32 Nucleo evaluation board “NUCLEO-F072RB” uses a STM32F072R8 processor.
The USB interface is used to power the board and can be used for programming and communication via virtual serial interface.
The Texas Instruments controlCard with TMS230F28335 processor plugged into the appropriate docking station (Docking-Stn USB-EMU) is supported. The USB interface can be used for power supply and for programming and debugging.
Alternatively, an external DC power supply can be used.
The Texas Instruments controlSTICK with TMS320F28069 processor is supported.
The USB interface is used for power supply and can be used for programming and debugging.
NOTE: This board is out of production.
