The Jade Automotive Platform for motor vehicles
The Jade Automotive Platform is a hardware and software platform for the development of automotive display, monitoring, and diagnostics systems based on the Fujitsu Jade MB86R01 processor (331 MHz) and Embedded Linux OS.
This innovative high-tech platform significantly cuts the development time for complex onboard vehicle equipment and allows engineers to focus on critical system components.
The Jade Automotive Platform employs highly complex system elements:
- BGA electronic components for the processor and the memory
- A speed data bus
- An operating system
- Development tools
- Examples of GUI applications
Hardware platform components
The CPU contains of the main high-speed elements of the system, which are critical to PCB layout. It has a compact 100 x 58 mm form factor with two 100-pin connectors.
Modules can be based on Fujitsu Jade MB86R01 or Fujitsu Jade-L MB86R03 processors in the lite version, which has reduced memory and lacks support for MediaLB, USB, and IDE66 interfaces.
A CPU module can be used on development stage or in the target devices directly.
A peripheral interface board, which interconnects with the CPU module, is used for development products based on the platform.
It contains electronic peripheral components; a power control unit; RS232, USB, CAN, and K-Line connectors; LEDs; and buttons. This board has dual display interfaces, as well as the inputs and outputs for analog video and audio.
