Product Reference Designs, Development Platforms, and Evaluation Modules help product developers leverage the capabilities of leading processors and SoCs, enabling them to quickly bring out embedded devices and gadgets for a wide range of applications.
These Development Platforms and Reference Designs come with a scalable and modular architecture, and include pre-built binaries, for popular operating systems and frameworks, providing design engineers with a flexible platform for building their embedded gadgets and products.
Mistral offers a wide range of easy-to-use, scalable and award winning embedded Development Platforms, Product Reference Design and Evaluation Kits based on leading SoCs that help product developers prototype and test their software and applications well before their custom product hardware is ready. Mistral has also designed and developed several software Development Platforms and Reference Designs to help customers address system level application challenges like mixed signal designs, power management, etc. along with the necessary software drivers and board support packages. Most of these development platforms and product reference design come with the standard Application Programming Interfaces for Android, Yocto Linux and/or Debian. These product development platforms, thus enable developers to build highly differentiated, feature-rich wireless and multimedia devices for the market, not only at comparatively low cost but also at considerably reduced time-to-market.
Mistral also helps silicon companies bring out Software Development Platforms (SDPs), Reference Designs and Evaluation Kits for their upcoming SoCs. Over the years, Mistral has designed and developed Reference Designs and Software Development Platforms for ADI, TI and many other silicon vendors. Some of these TI Reference Designs and evaluation modules have been adopted by leading product developers and have also won several awards and accolades over the years. This includes the TMDXEVM8148, a development platform which was shortlisted for the prestigious UBM ACE Awards 2012 in the “Development kit, Reference designs and SBCs” category. Another of Mistral’s development platforms, the Crane Board, a low-cost, open-source hardware development platform, was also voted among the ‘EDN Hot 100 products’ in 2011.
Our growing list of Reference Designs, Evaluation Modules and Development Platforms are based on the latest ARM®, digital signal processors (DSPs) and multi-core processors from leading semiconductor companies like Texas Instruments, Renesas, NXP, Qualcomm, Analog Devices, etc.
