BASe-Box - Rapid Prototyping Extension Board

With the rapid prototyping extension board the BASe-Box base system becomes an universal rapid prototyping platform. It can be used for commissioning and test purposes as well as for small batch series and scientific instruments. Due to its compatibility to widespread development platforms it facilitates fast and cost-efficient implementation of applications.

  • Development Support

    In cooperation with the Open Source Automation Development Lab (http://www.osadl.org/) IMMS is regularly offering Embedded Linux workshops. The accompanying hands-on sessions introduce the development of applications with the help of the BASe-Box rapid prototyping platform to the participants.

     

  • Power Supply

    The rapid prototyping extension board is powered by an external power supply unit and supports industrial wide-range input voltages from 10 to 36 V. It is highly efficient and offers EMI filtering, over-voltage and reverse polarity protection. This power supply is shared with the BASe-Box processor board.
