Mistral provides reference designs and development platforms for various ARM, DSP and multi-core SoCs by leveraging the capabilities of these silicon for designing next-generation embedded products. These reference platforms are offered to customers with access to source files like Gerber and schematics enabling them to make necessary modifications to the PCB design for their custom product development. These designs help developers’ prototype and implement solutions quickly and efficiently with minimal risk.
Mistral also offers customization services on these reference design platforms including design modification, BOM optimization, custom firmware and algorithms and product prototyping helping product developers take their designs-to-market faster.
The TMDXEVM8148 from Mistral based on Texas Instruments DM814x SoC was among the Finalists for the prestigious UBM ACE Awards 2012 in the “Development Kits, Reference Designs and SBCs” category. Mistral also offers custom design services to silicon manufacturers for building Reference Design for a variety of ARM, DSP and multi-core SoCs.
Listed below are a few of the reference designs available from Mistral:
Mistral also provides application-specific reference designs and custom development services for reference designs. Some of the reference designs available from Mistral in the automotive domain are:
Hands-free Car Kit (HFCK) is a car telematics reference design based on Analog Devices’ BF532 processor. It provides hands-free operation, to make/receive calls through a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone to a user. The HFCK consists of a main unit, power supply and car interface, UI, a microphone and speaker.
