The final glue-card is progressing well. More information at the Genoa website
"When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ballpoint pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat the problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion to develop a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300 C. The Russians used a pencil."
To isolate the specific pin-out of the CC-PC module from the board-design and in order to add interfaces, which are not provided by default like e.g. JTAG, a "glue-card" is used. The current and final version of the glue-card (v2.0) is designed by the Genoa electronics group. It provides a PLX 9030 local bus, 4 I2C and 3 JTAG interfaces.
