VertiCal base board for A-Line 2M in LQFP176 target package

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 SPC564AXX devices in various package types.

Optional POLYPOD-TQ176 and POLYPOD-BG324 allow mounting the SPC564A70AVB176 and SPC564A80AVB176/324 boards on the application's module. The system can be integrated with an optional SPC56XVTOP-A RAM top board for increased overlay memory and additional debug connections.
