COPious-PCIe Overview

COPious is a user-customizable, turnkey embedded instrument that includes two A9 CPU cores. Linux runs in core 0 to provide ethernet, USB and disk connectivity while core 1 runs real-time stand-alone applications. COPious is compatible with Innovative’s wide assortment of ultimate-performance FMC modules. With its modular IO, scalable performance and easy to use CPU core architecture, the COPious reduces time-to-market while providing the performance you need.

Embedded Control

Install a COPious into any standard PCIe/PXIe slot to provide autonomous, real time control and data acquisition. Performance is independent of host PC operating system. On PXIe hosts, available IEEE 1588 network or GPS-synchronized timing, triggering and sample control is multiplexed to routed to the FMC module site, providing limitless expansion via multiple nodes.

Uniquely customizable

A HPC FMC site for I/O, user- programmable FPGA for I/O interfaces, triggering and timing control, 4 lane Gen2 PCIe connectivity for fast data streaming and 1 GbE ethernet and USB 2 port to connect to large capacity storage media.

Remote or Local Operation

Continuous data streaming of up to 100 MB/s (1 Gb EtherNet) or 480 Mb/s (USB2.0) to local USB drive. Optional, stand-alone, autonomous operation with precision-timed sampling.


Runs from flash in a compact, rugged footprint that is ready for unique operation.
