ARM board is configurable and production-ready
Direct Insight announced a flexible, production-quality ARM board, which is configurable by changing a tiny (68 mm x 26 mm) processor module - from ARM9 to quad core ARM Cortex-A9, thus offering a production solution for Linux, Windows CE and Android-based products. The TRITON-TXFB is fully production-ready, with industrial temperature range support and protected I/O. It is intended for low and medium volume use in end-user products. Projects which can use an off-the-shelf board gain an advantage in cost and time-to-market compared with the creation of a custom baseboard. TRITON-TXFB can be used with any of the current generation of pin-compatible 3.3v I/O TRITON-TX modules, from a TRITON-TX28S based on a Freescale i.MX283, to a TRITON-TX48 based on the TI AM335x processor as used in the popular Beaglebone community board, to the TRITON-TX6Q with quad ARM Cortex-A9 based i.MX6 from Freescale. In each case, the combination of baseboard and module forms a complete production-ready solution, according to the company. The range of available interfaces includes Ethernet, USB Host and OTG, SD Card and 2x RS-232. In addition, connectors for an EDT unified interface resistive or capacitive touch screen, from 4.3” to 7” are provided as well as a 40-pin header for other displays. Other I/O includes I2C, digital audio, 12 GPIOs, analogue inputs and PWM outputs. A single 5-20v DC power supply is required. A range of add-on daughter cards for additional connectivity, including wireless, is under development.
