It’s a general purpose microprocessor board powered by the AMD Geode LX CPU. But Neptune is a step beyond the typical x86 architecture, offering something more attractive for the embedded world: Open Firmware, more powerful and flexible than a traditional BIOS, is DAVE’s choice as boot firmware for Neptune. The powerful on-board FPGA improves Neptune flexibility and allows customers to add specific interfaces to the design. Leveraging on the x86 compatibility, Neptune allows quick deployment of solutions based on software developed for the well-known x86 architecture.
