Qseven System-on-Module based on TI’s Sitara™ AM389x ARM® processor and DaVinci™ DM816x video processor
BANGALORE (India) March. 13, 2013: - iWave Systems Technologies, a leading innovative embedded product engineering services company, has launched a new Qseven System-on-Module (SOM), operating up to 1.35GHz, based on the Sitara™ AM389x ARM® Cortex™-A8 and the DaVinci™ DM816x video processors from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI).
In just a short time, iWave has been very successful in bringing to market the highly integrated, high-performance, low-power and low-cost Qseven SOM, which is ideal for a variety of applications such as network and communication processing, industrial automation and human machine interface, interactive point-of-service kiosks and more.
Says M A Mohamed Saliya, Managing Director, iWave Systems: “We have always prided ourselves on being the first to build system solutions around the ‘hottest’ processors in the industry. Our newest offering based on TI’s Sitara AM389x and DaVinci DM816x processors is no exception. We are confident application developers and OEMs will find a fast track to product prototyping and rollout from iWave’s Qseven offering.”
The Sitara AM389x processor is pin-to-pin compatible with the DaVinci DM816x generation of video. The processor is equipped with SGX530 3D graphics engine and dual simultaneous 1080p display engine for a rich user interface.
Key features of AM389x/DM816x SOM include:
- 1GB DDR3 SDRAM
- 128MB NAND Flash
- On-board MicroSD slot
- 230-pin QSEVEN Edge Connector Interface
- Gigabit Ethernet
HD Video IN/OUT Ports
iWave has also designed the Qseven-compatible carrier card for evaluating the features of TI’s Sitara AM389x and DaVinci DM816x processors.
“iWave’s Qseven SOM solution is one of many that utilizes the latest technology to deliver excellent results for customers, providing more performance at a low cost,” said Adrian Valenzuela, marketing manager, Sitara ARM processors, TI. “Developers will find that the Qseven SOM is a great solution tailored to fit the needs of the industrial and communications industries.”
The development kit consists of 1GB DDR3, Gigabit Ethernet, USB2.0 Host, Mini PCIE Connector for 3G/Wi-Fi Module, CMOS Camera, SATA 2.0, 800x480 - RGB 7'' LCD with Resistive Touch and a Linux 2.6.37 OS, which enables prototyping the application in the shortest timeframe.
