The CPT-DFTS provides a development environment for the CPT-DFCC MCU controller cards.
The card has a DF Series Main Interface for direct plug-in of the DF Series Control Card as well as ribbon cable connections for the DF series Communications and JTAG interfaces. The card has expansion IDC headers on its edge which enable it to interface to other cards.
In addition, the CPT-DFTS board can be configured via on-card jumpers to operate as a fully automatic test environment for the CPT-DFCC MCU controller cards.
The CPT-DFTS does not provide buffering or signal conditioning for digital signals from the CPT-DFCC as the Piccolo and Delfino Processors are fully configurable. Any buffering or signal conditioning on card would lock them into a particular capability. The CPT-DFTS is not intended for anything beyond development or testing use due to this limitation.
All analog signals are passed directly through to the DF Series Main Interface analog Header.
The CPT-DFTS board requires a CPT-DFCC Single/Dual MCU processor card to operate.
