MYIR Tech has released MYC-JA5D2X system-on-module powered by a Microchip Atmel SAMA5D2 ARM Cortex A5 processor with 256MB flash, and 256 MB DDR3. The module relies on a SO-DIMM edge connector to expose the camera interface, Ethernet, USB, camera, and other I/O signals.
MYC-JA5D2X CPU module specifications:
- SoC – Atmel SAMA5D26 or SAMA5D27 ARM Cortex A5 processor @ up to 500 MHz with 128KB L2 cache
- System Memory – 256MB DDR3 SDRAM
- Storage – 256MB NAND flash, 4MB data flash, 64KB EEPROM
- Connectivity – On-board 10/100M Ethernet PHY
- 200-pin SO-DIMM edge connector with:
- 1x Ethernet
- 1x USB Host, 1x USB Device, 1x USB HSIC (HSIC is only for SAMA5D27)
- Up to 10x serial ports, up to 2 x CAN (only for SAMA5D27)
- Up to 7 x I2C, up to 7 x SPI
- Up to 2 x QSPI
- 12 x 12-bit ADC (enhanced resolution up to 14 bits)
- 4x PWM
- 1x 4-bit SDIO
- 1x 24-bit LCD
- Up to 2x SSC, compatible with I2S
- 1x 12-bit Camera Interface
- 1x SMC (Supports parallel external memory interface)
- Up to 97x GPIOs
- Misc – Power and user LEDs
- Power supply – 3.3V/0.5A
- Dimensions – 67.6 mm x 45mm (8-layer PCB)
- Temperature Range – -40 ~ 85 °C (industrial grade)
The company provides Linux 4.1 for the module. MYC-JA5D2X SoM is very similar to the company’s MYC-JAD5D4X module launched early las year, except it’s using the more power efficient SAMA5D2 processor instead of a SAMA5D4 processor clocked at 600 MHz, and they have reduced costs by lowering the default amount of storage and memory.
MYIR also offers MYD-JA5D2X development board combining a baseboard with MYC-JA5D2X CPU module, and bring out various interfaces, headers, and connectors such as serial ports, USB Host and Device ports, a CAN & RS485 terminals, an Ethernet port, RS485, audio in/out, LCD and camera connectors, etc…
MYC-JA5D2X system-on-module sells for $49 with ATSAMA5D27 processor, while MYD-JA5D2X development board goes for $129 as part of kit that also adds a power adapter and various cables. More information about both products can be found on MYiR Tech website.
