VertiCal base board for SPC563M (Monaco) series devices in QFP176

The Vertical Adapter is designed to substitute the device on an ECU version used during engine calibration.

All VertiCal hardware is designed to support a standardized tool connector, allowing a variety of calibration and debug hardware to be connected and reused.

VertiCal components are available to support a wide range of SPC563M64 devices in various package types.

The complete system consists of a SPC563M64AVB144/176 board, a calibration RAM board SPC56XVTOP-M and a POLYPOD-TQ144/176 Poly-Pod which plugs directly into the motherboard.
