Innovative Integration

The Cardsharp a user-customizable, turnkey embedded single board that provides two A9 CPU cores directly-coupled with fabric. runs in core 0 providing Ethernet, USB and disk connectivity while core 1 runs bare-metal, zero-latency, real-time standalone applications.

The Cardsharp Kintex 7-series FPGA fabric is directly connected to an HPC FMC module site and 128MB x 64 DRAM, and is compatible with Innovative's huge assortment of ultimate-performance FMC I/O modules. With its modular I/O, scale-able performance and powerful, 32-bit floating point CPU core architecture, Cardsharp dramatically reduces time-to-market while providing excellent real-time performance.


Uniquely customize-able due to it's XMC footprint and FMC I/O expansion site, Cardsharp is ideal for applications such as distributed . Put the Cardsharp at the data source and reduce data transport bottlenecks and complexity.

Cardsharp is also compatible with Innovative's new ePC-Nano embedded PC/carrier that provides dual 10 Gbps Ethernet ports for fast data streaming to networks of any size and dual mSATA2 connections to multi-TB SSD storage media.

Cardsharp is L3-ruggedized, booting from eMMC flash in a compact, 150x75mm footprint that is ready for operation in harsh environments. This single board is perfect for portable or vehicle-based data loggers or hand-held field equipment use, given it's 8-36V DC-only operation.

“So easy and powerful, using Cardsharp is like cheating your next embedded development.” --Jim Henderson President, Innovative Integration
