The CUB, as the announcement and information page attest to, is a series of boards designed specifically to speed the integration, test, and calibration of ArcticLink III VX devices into a customers system. Essentially, the CUB is a series of boards designed to allow system designers to connect to their development/prototype systems through blue-wire, or via a specially-designed board/FPC that plugs directly between the customer system and the CUB.
The CUB is designed as a flexible design tool: it is designed to accommodate all 17 variants of the ArcticLink III VX CSSP, as well as the 15 variants of the ArcticLink III BX CSSP. The CUB system supports:
- VEE and DPO
- Full i2C communications with the QuickLogic device (through a convenient USB port)
- Command and control testing for software interaction with the host system
- Probing of all display signals for testing and debug purposes
The CUB is intended to allow a system designer (with QuickLogic’s assistance, of course) to insert an ArcticLink III variant into their system design through a known good board, to create the correct initialization code for the ArcticLink III, to perform display bring-up and testing, and to test and calibrate VEE and DPO. We expect that this system can save designers a significant amount of time in development through the known-good architecture of the board.
Available only through QuickLogic sales, we are loaning CUB systems immediately to qualified customers for their bring-up needs.
Questions about the CUB are always welcomed…
