Strategic Test has announced a Freescale i.MX51 processor-based System on Module (SOM). Called the TX51, it measures just 67.6 mm x 26 mm x 4.2 mm (2.6” x 1” x 0.16”) and contains an ARM Cortex-A8 800 MHz i.MX51 processor coupled with 128 MB mobile DDR-SDRAM, 128 MB NAND Flash memory and a 200-pin SODIMM connector. The i.MX51 multimedia applications processors offer high performance processing optimized for the lowest power consumption for smartbooks, netbooks, and other consumer and industrial applications including: portable media players, gaming consoles, secure handheld devices and applications requiring an advanced HMI. The TX51 is targeted at embedded multimedia applications where size, high-cpu performance and low power consumption are critical factors. Features include: LCD resolution up to 1280 x 768 pixels at 24 bpp; OpenGL ES 2.0 and OpenVG 1.1 hardware accelerators; Multi-format HD 720p video decoder and D1 video encoder engine; camera interface; NEON SIMD media accelerator; vector floating point unit, high-speed USB 2.0 OTG and Host, 10/100 Mbps Ethernet. Interfaces includ: UART(3), SDIO(2), SSI/AC97/I2S(2), I2C, CSPI, keypad, and external memory interface. The TX51 is pin-compatible with the existing i.MX27 and I.MX25 processor-based modules.
