Exor provides a Linux RT board support package (BSP) or Android BSP for the module which also fully supports the company’s X Platform including Exor Embedded Open HMI software, Corvina Cloud IIoT platform, and IEC61131 CODESYS or Exor xPLC runtime.
The OpenHMI software platform enables the design of SVG and HTML5 based graphical user interfaces, and device connectivity with over 200 communication protocols. The company also says MQTT and OPC-UA interfaces are available together with cloud connectivity for telemetry and remote assistance using OpenVPN software.
NanoSOM nS02 system-on-module is available now in several standard configurations with 256MB or 512MB DDR RAM with 4GB eMMC flash disk, or 1GB DDR RAM with 8GB eMMC flash disk. The lifecycle of the module is guaranteed to be at least 10 years from the time of product launch. You’ll find additional details, as well as documents such as datasheet and user manual, on the product page. What about the development kit mentioned in the introduction? It doesn’t show up anywhere, and Arrow website currently only sells Exor devkits for the earlier NanoSOM NS01 based on NXP i.MX 6UltraLite processor.
