Hardware

CPU and Timing Unit

Architecture based on two computing units:

General CPU (based on SOM, System on Module)
  • CPU: Quad Core Arm9 @800MHz
  • RAM: 1 GB
  • Flash NAND: 512 MB
  • eMMC: 8 GB
  • Extended Range: from -40°C to +85°C
  • 10/100/1000 Ethernet
  • Audio Codec
Timing Unit
  • FPGA
  • Processor NIOS II/e 32bit RISC implemented on FPGA
  • It processes all the real time signals, time base included
  • It has a dedicated bus for the communication with the General CPU
  • MicroSD memory 8 Gb expandable up to 128 Gb

Time Bases

Temperature compensated oscillator VCTCXO 19,2 MHz directly connected to the FPGA that internally generates 100MHz.
  • Aging (first year): ±1ppm
  • Frequency Stability (from -30°C to +85°C): ±1ppm
GNSS chip antenna module
  • PPS with 30ns accuracy
  • Integrated Antenna
  • Automatic switch and external active antenna if connected
  • GPS/QZSS
  • GLONASS
  • BeiDou
  • Planned for Galileo
Display

Display

  • Mitsubishi 7.0 inches Color TFT-LCD
  • Capacitive Touch
  • Operating temperature : -30°C +70°C
  • Brightness sensor for the Brightness automatic adjustment
Printer

Printer

  • Seiko Thermal Printer
  • 384 dots per line and 8 dots/mm
  • High speed up to 62,5 mm/s
  • Operating temperature : -30°C +70°C
  • No moving parts
  • Paper roll
    • Width 57mm
    • Diameter max 55mm

Power supply

  • 10-30 V DC power supply
  • Same supply charger as for Rei2

Battery

  • Li-ion battery
  • Voltage: 7,4V
  • Capacity: 13.4Ah
  • Energy: 96 Wh
  • Easily replaceable by the user

Keyboard

Keyboard with physical keys and flexible protective membrane cover.

Timing lines

  • 4 main lines on 4mm axle bushing
  • 4 signal lines on 6-pole amphenol socket as well as on banana sockets
  • 4 lines on keyboard (separate)
  • The physical lines have a configurable Schmitt-Trigger with lower and upper threshold
  • The lines have configurable noise filter (to eliminate signal bounces e.g. stargate or starting buttons)
  • 16 lines by radio on 5 channels with different frequencies (two native LinkGate inputs and three on the serial ports)
  • 80 lines through Linkpod extension (as for Rei2)
  • 3 serial lines completely configurable
    • Computer A
    • Computer B/Rei2 Net
    • Displayboard
    • All with separate lines RS232 and RS485 with power supply +5V limited at 150mA
  • 3 analogic inputs 0-5V
    • Temperature, humidity and anemometry sensors
  • 6 I/O digital 0-5V
    • GPS in/out synchronization signal
    • Traffic light control

Connections

  • 2 Ethernet ports
    • Rei Pro Net LAN network connection (switch not necessary)
  • 1 USB Device
    • o Connection to PC
  • 4 USB Host Ports
    • External keyboard, Mouse, USB keys
  • 1 audio MP3 port
  • 1 video HDMI port
    • Mirroring of Rei Pro display on external monitor. Next expected developments will include particular ports e.g. Rei Pro display extension (displayboard for referees for horse riding races)
  • WiFi for WLAN connection
  • Bluetooth for connection to mobile devices
