Octavo Systems Announces Development Boards based on OSD32MP1 System-on-Package (SiP)

Announced in February 2019, STM32MP1 Cortex-A7/M4 processor family recently got an update with 24 new SKU’s boosting the Cortex A7 core frequency to 800 MHz instead of just 650 MHz for the SoC’s announced last year.

One of the first companies to take advantage of the new parts will be Octavo Sytems that unveiled OSD32MP1 system-in-package (SiP) last year combining STM32MP15x MPU, up to 1GB RAM, 4K EEPROM, STPMIC1 power management IC, two oscillators, and over 100 passive components into a single chip.

The company also introduced two upcoming development kits for the STM32MP1 based SiP: OSD32MP1-BRK “Flexible Prototyping Platform” and the more featured OSD32MP1-RED evaluation & development board. Both boards are supported by OpenSTLinux which we covered in our previous articles about STM32MP1.

OSD32MP1-BRK Breakout board for OSD32MP1 SiP

The first board aims to provide easy access to the I/O of the STM32MP1 processor via breadboard compatible headers, and enable engineers to quickly build prototypes without having to build their own custom hardware.

OSD32MP1-BRK breakout board key features and specifications:

  • SiP –  Octavo Systems OSD32MP157C-512M-BAA with STM32MP157C dual Arm Cortex-A7 + M4, 512MB DDR3 memory, STPMIC1A Power Management, EEPROM, Oscillator, and passives components
  • Storage – MicroSD card socket
  • USB – Micro USB port for power and programming
  • Expansion – 2x 60-pin (2.54mm pitch) headers exposing 106 I/Os
  • Debugging – STLink header, 3-pin UART header
  • Misc – Reset & power buttons, 4x LEDs, 32KHz Crystal, DIP switch to select boot modes
  • Power Supply – 5V via Micro USB port
  • Dimensions – 75 x 46mm (4-layer design with no backside components)

The second boards make it easier to develop IoT applications or applications requiring a display thanks to compatibility with Raspberry Pi HAT add-on boards,  a MikroBus header to use with Mikroe Click board, wired and wireless connectivity, as well as HDMI port and DSI header to connect to external displays.

OSD32MP1-RED specifications:

  • SiP –  Octavo Systems OSD32MP157C-512M-BAA with STM32MP157C dual Arm Cortex-A7 + M4, 512MB DDR3 memory, STPMIC1A Power Management, EEPROM, Oscillator, and passives components
  • Storage – 8GB eMMC flash, MicroSD card socket
  • Video Output / Display Interface – Micro HDMI port, MIPI DSI connector
  • Camera Interface
  • Connectivity – WiFi/Bluetooth,  10/100/1000M Gigabit Ethernet
  • USB – 1x USB Host header, 1x USB-C OTG port
  • Expansion
    • 40-pin Raspberry Pi compatible header
    • MikroBus header
    • 40-pin STMicro Motor Control Header
    • CAN FD
  • Debugging – UART and JTAG (STLink)
  • Misc – 2x buttons, 2x LEDs, DIP switch to select boot modes
  • Power Supply – 5V via power barrel jack

A BeagleBoard clone with a MP1 would be seriously cool!
