DSP-Board D.Module2.C6747

The D.Module2.C6747 is based on the Texas Instruments processor TMS320C6747. It is characterized by low power requirements and a broad range of data acquisition and communication interfaces.

Key Features

  • TMS320C6747 floating point DSP
  • 100MBit Ethernet, USB2.0
  • 64 Mbytes RAM
  • versatile peripheral interfaces
  • 2xUART, I2C, SPI, GPIO
  • low power
  • stand-alone operation


The D.Module2.C6657 is a perfect choice for industrial control and measurement. The large number of serial McASP channels for example facilitates building multi-channel, high resolution, synchronously sampled data acquisition systems, as used in vibration monitoring and analysis. A host PC can be connected via USB or Ethernet.
