Variscite has launched the VAR-SOM-AM62, a module for low-power embedded techniques. The SoM is powered by the Texas Devices AM62x. The VAR-SOM-AM62 runs on 1.4 GHz Quad-core Cortex-A53 with 400MHz Cortex-M4F and an extra 333 MHz PRU real-time co-processors. It provides digital camera interfaces MIPI-CSI2, built-in 3D GPU together with twin LVDS show. The VAR-SOM-AM62 is a low-cost system ranging from solely $33 making it appropriate for low-cost embedded industrial merchandise that require excessive efficiency and low energy.
A System on Module (SOM) is a compact and self-contained module that integrates the core elements of a pc system, together with a microprocessor, reminiscence, and enter/output interfaces. It supplies a handy and cost-effective approach for designers to construct customized techniques and eliminates the necessity for a fancy and time-consuming design course of. SOMs are utilized in quite a lot of purposes, reminiscent of industrial automation, medical units, and embedded techniques, the place house and energy limitations are a priority.
The SOM provides a number of connectivity options together with an authorized dual-band Wi-Fi, BT/BLE 5.2, 3x CAN bus, twin USB, and twin GbE. Furthermore, itsupports industrial working temperatures. The SoM is a member of Variscite’s Pin2Pin product household, permitting builders to make use of the identical service board design for a variety of processors and the corporate additionally provides lengthy product lifecycles.
“The combination of the AM625x processor into the VAR-SOM-AM62 offers builders a stable basis that mixes efficiency and energy efficiencies,” stated Ofer Austerlitz, VP Enterprise Improvement and Gross sales of Variscite. “These qualities together with its built-in interfaces generate a really enticing cost-optimized resolution for present-day embedded edge units.”
The corporate has additionally launched a VAR-SOM-AM62 analysis equipment that serves as a whole improvement platform for each analysis and software improvement functions and consists of the scalable Symphony service board and an non-obligatory LVDS show with a contact panel.
Variscite is a worldwide System on Module designer and producer. The corporate supplies the broadest ARM-based SoM portfolio within the embedded market with a variety of configuration choices that cowl a complete embedded product and software vary; from entry-level to high-performance options.
