3 Connector Prototyping Board for C5000/C6000 TI Systems


Model No.: LR-PLUS3

>>> Scroll down for a list of excellent sources for surface mount (SMT) adapters <<<

This prototyping daughtercard plugs directly into several 5000/6000 development systems manufactured by Texas Instruments, Inc. and Spectrum Digital, Inc. For specific compatibility information, please refer to our Compatibility Chart.

This prototyping daughtercard contains 3 Samtec 80 pin connectors, allowing access to the Host Port Interface (HPI) on many of the newer C5000/C6000 development systems.

This board features a 6 layer printed circuit board with a grid of 0.035" diameter holes on 0.1" centers, and silk screen on both sides. All pins of the three 80 pin Samtec connectors are brought out to pads for easy wiring to the expansion connector signals. All power signals and ground are connected to internal planes, and can be accessed at numerous locations throughout the board. This feature allows prototyping circuits with much lower noise.

Each hole is labeled using an X-Y coordinate system where letters are used for rows, and numbers are used for columns. This feature allows creating a wire list in the form: D12-G3, R23-T16, etc.

The above image shows the model LR-PLUS3 daughtercard plugged into the 5510 DSK board. A typical prototype circuit is shown, and access to any pin on either expansion connector is easy. Note that the connectors, ICs, and SMT adapters are not included with the model LR-PLUS3.

This is a close up view of the connector section of the top side of the  board. Notice that every expansion connector signal is accessable at a pad (0.035" hole), and that the pads are clearly numbered. Also seen here is the 0.1" array of holes(also 0.035") for mounting of DIP ICs, headers, SMT adapters, etc. This board contains 4 internal planes which are connected to +5V, +3.3V and GND.

The image above shows a close up view of the connector section of the bottom side of the board. The 80 pin Samtec connectors come pre-installed on the board. Like the top side, each signal is clearly numbered in white silkscreen. Notice that the array of holes on the entire board is labeled in an (X,Y) fashion. Each row of holes is given a letter, while each column is given a number. This way, any hole on the board can be referred to by, for example, D27, making it easy to mark connection points on a schematic.
