Generic PC or industrial PC

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The Generic PC or industrial PC is a generic target (typically a general purpose or industrial PC with x86 based CPU like a PC/104 stack) without any specific Input/Output. This target can be used as template for own x86 PC-based targets. Linux supported I/O cards can be added to provide the required inputs and outputs. The following picture shows a PC/104 stack with some mounted boards: a FireWire extension board and a fully configurable FPGA-based digital I/O board.
