In the diploma I chronologicly elaborate the development of the hardware part
of the product ACTIVE PROBE INFINEON DAP, which is the property of
iSYSTEM Labs d.o.o.. The electronic device enables simpler and more advanced
programming, debugging and tracing the Infineon microcontrollers' firmware
that we access through the DAP connector. Due to its small size, the device makes it easier to connect the target system in a wide variety of applications and situations.
The development of the hardware part of the project began with the design of
the electrical schematic and its block diagram, followed by the determination of the
shape of the circuit and the choice of the enclosure. After the completion of the
construction of the eight layered printed circuit board, the circuit had to be assembled,
programmed and tested. The measurement of the power consumption of the circuit
and the temperature of the enclosure are also described. The design of the printed circuit board was carried out in the OrCAD software by Cadence, the enclosure and other mechanical parts were designed with the SolidWorks software package. The
CorelDraw program was used to prepare the information label of the product, the enclosure's graphics and the documentation.
