nanoFIP Test Board

The nanoFIP test board is used to test the functionality of the nanoFIP design. Apart from the nanoFIP chip, the FielDrive and the FieldTR it houses another Actel FPGA that can access nanoFIP in stand-alone or in memory mode. This FPGA can also communicate through a RS232 port with a windows PC running the NFTC software. The components on the board are placed in such a way that with a focused beam, radiation tests can be performed to the nanoFIP, FielDrive and FieldTR, leaving the rest if the components in a radiation-safe zone. The card has been designed by the company HLP.
