Advanced Knowledge Associates has designed a new logic module that can facilitate accelerated advanced embedded system design.

The LM150 combines a 32bit ARM9-based MCU and high-density Xilinx Spartan 3E Series FPGA fabric, as well as all associated interfaces and power circuitry. It supports a wide range of standard interfaces and includes multiple on-board functions, simplifying the system integration process.

LM150 is suitable for vertical markets, including medical, military and other high-performance, low-power and space-constrained applications.

The LM150 supports the following interfaces: dual 1553RT, dual CAN, dual Ethernet 10/100Base-T, and USB host and device. Modules also feature an integrated high-density DRAM plus on-module flash, which enables multiple boot images for logic and software applications. Its modular architecture enables easy integration of user-logic and custom peripheral chipsets. Programmable clock generation, voltage regulation and power monitoring circuitry are also included on-module.

The LM150 SOM runs Linux or other MMU-capable OS and comes in a 462-pin PGA package.
