The IHB is a powerful embedded board, designed to be part of the CySkin system or used as a generic construction block for your embedded application.
CySkin is managed by a network of Intelligent Hub Boards (IHBs) integrating a microcontroller and a CAN bus controller/transceiver on the same small form factor PCB. The IHB is a general purpose software and hardware programmable board based on a Programmable System on Chip (PSoC® Cypress) embedding an ARM CORTEX-M3, high-performance analog peripherals and PLD-based logic.
We are currently working on developing additional extension boards.
We are working to provide expansion boards for many different extra functionalities. Currently we have a stepper control board (MCB-STB) and a break out board (BOB) to interface the IHB with your hardware or for debug purpose.
Stepper Control Board (MCB-STP)
The Stepper Control Board (MCB-STP) extends the functionality of IHB providing a bipolar stepper motor driver. The board can deliver 1.5A per coil (up to 2.2A with proper additional cooling), acquire signals from an incremental encoder and measure currents flowing in each phase. Additional boards can be stacked with a single IHB impementing a compact and embeddable multi-axis stepper motor control system.
