control products

The B-Box RCP is a high-performance controller dedicated to power converters. Specially engineered for rapid prototyping applications, it distinguishes by its hardware and software configurability. Simultaneously, the B-Box also guarantees an easy use and programming.

The B-Board PRO is the heart of the B-Box controller. It is also available as a standalone product for embedded applications. The board feature a ZynQ-based dual-core ARM processor and a Kintex-grade FPGA, plus advanced communication capabilities and extensive I/Os.

Software

Easy programming

Imperix provides two Software Development Kits (SDK), dedicated to either graphical or C/C++ programming. Engineers are thus free to chose between the automated generation of code – e.g. from Matlab Simulink™ – or the superior flexibility and performance of hard coding:

  • C/C++ SDK – support for Xilinx SDK™
  • ACG SDK – support for Matlab Simulink™
C/C++ SDK

The C/C++ programming SDK provides everything engineers need to program the B-Box RCP or B-Board PRO in a straightforward manner from Xilinx SDK, the development environment from Xilinx.
For advanced users and complex projects, C/C++ is a must, thanks to its superior flexibility and performance over the ACG SDK.

ACG SDK

The Automated Code Generation (ACG) SDK allows the generation of code and the programming of B-Box RCP or B-Board PRO directly from MATLAB™ Simulink™, which is achieved in only one click!
This also enables realistic PC-based simulation the complete application before the actual programming.
