Frequently Asked Questions
All Card Engines are designed to be interchangable on all Zoom Starter Development Kit (SDK) baseboards with the exception of the NXP LH79524 Card Engine and Freescale MCF5329/MCF5373 Fire Engines which require different versions of the SDK baseboard.
These are accronyms for Logic PD's bootloader software.
Most of the processor signals are available on the SOM's expansion connector(s). Please refer to the specific SOM Hardware Specification manual for a complete reference.
Yes, the Card Engine connector consists of a 144-pin SODIMM (widely used as laptop memory connectors) and two high-density 80-pin Hirose connectors (widely used in cell phone applications). Logic has leveraged both the robustness and the cost efficiency of these industry standard connectors to provide a reliable low-cost connection scheme.
No, the SOM does not have ESD protection.
The reason for this is that the SOM was designed to be adaptable to many different applications, which makes it impractical to design in ESD protection. The SOM does not provide any ESD protection circuitry on the board and must be provided by the product it is used in. Logic PD has extensive experience in designing products with ESD requirements.
Yes, our model numbers contain encoded information. Please refer to White Paper 293: Model Number Explanation & Decoder for specific information on Logic PD's Model Numbering scheme.
LogicLoader requires a CompactFlash card to be formatted with a primary partition.
White Paper 293: Model Number Explanation & Decoder explains how to identify your product by part number, serial number, and model number.
No, LogicLoader does not support RLE encoded bitmaps. Only uncompressed bitmap formats are supported.
The latest version of LogicLoader is always marked by (current) on the downloads page.
The build.sh file must use Unix end of line terminations.
