OZYmandias - interface module
About the OZY Module
The OZY module is an FPGA based interface controller card that provides the input and output connections to the real world. The use of an Altera Cyclone II FPGA provides numerous control lines for interfacing the various boards connected to the Atlas backplane.
OZY also provides a high speed USB 2.0 interface to the controlling PC. The USB interface will use a Cypress FX2 chip which greatly simplifies the design, development time and effort. The FX2 supports full duplex USB communications at a measured 35MB/s, which should allow sufficient bandwidth for current and future requirements.
The FPGA also provides the necessary control logic and data formatting for the Janus board as well serial and parallel interfaces for user defined I/O.
The software interface to the Janus module is being written in Verilog by Phil, VK6APH and Bill, KD5TFD.
The project leader for OZY is Phil, N8VB.
