    “VRecs” Eval-Kit

    The DIRIS B02 Board is the evaluation system for the VRecsL

    The evaluation kit meets 4 demands:

    • Test environment for the usage and functional demonstration for the “VRecs L” CPU module
    • Acting as a reference for the integration of the “VRecs” into customer applications
    • reliable referential environment, that if needed – e.g. critical usage of the Vrecs in the final product of the customer – can verify the correct perfomance of the Vrecs CPU module
    • creation of configurations for transfer/copying to other “VRecs modules”

    The “VRecs L evaluation kit” consists of the following components:

    1. “VRecs eval box”:
      • CPU module “VRecs L”
      • “VRecs L IO board” with standard interfaces for the supported ports
      • fitting metal case with milled front plates
    2. MMC or SD card (plugged in the “VRecs eval box”)
    3. Camera (PAL)
    4. Power supply with 12 volts for the eval box and the camera (international adapters in the lining of the suitcase)
    5. FBAS video cable for connection of a monitor
    6. manual with wiring diagram and layout of the IO boards
    7. sturdy suitcase with stuffing inside for transport and storage
    8. 10x “Dual Row Vertical Male Connector (Type Q)” identical to the one on the IO board, fitting to the CPU module “VRecs L”.

    The parts mentioned above are already pre-assembled in the suitcase, so that the system is instantly operational after connecting it with power.
