OSD32MP1-RED development board was first announced last year together with another board based on Octavo Systems OSD32MP1 System-in-Package (SiP). The chip packs an STMicro STM32MP1 Cortex-A7/M4 processor, up to 1GB DDR3L memory, 4KB EEPROM, a PMIC, two low-power MEMS oscillators, over 100 passive components into a single 18x18mm 302 Ball BGA package.
The company has now just announced the availability of the OSD32MP1-RED development platform on DigiKey, Arrow, and Mouser for around $265 and up. There have been a few modifications to the design with, for instance, the USB header replaced by a USB Type-A connector, but the most notable difference is that OSD32MP1-RED is now using a green PCB instead of the red one showed during the first announcement…
- SiP – Octavo Systems OSD32MP157C-512M-BAA with STM32MP157C SoC with dual-core Arm Cortex-A7, Cortex-M4 real-time core, plus 512MB DDR3 memory, STPMIC1A power management chip, EEPROM, oscillator, and passive components
- Storage – eMMC flash, MicroSD card socket
- Video Output / Display Interface – Micro HDMI port, MIPI DSI connector
- Camera header
- Connectivity – WiFi/Bluetooth, 10/100/1000M Gigabit Ethernet
- USB – 1x USB Host port, 1x USB-C OTG port
- 40-pin Raspberry Pi compatible header
- 40-pin STMicro Motor Control Header
- MikroBus header
- CAN FD via one of the headers above
- Debugging – UART header and JTAG (STLink) header
- Misc – Power & reset buttons, 2x user buttons, Power LED, 2x user LEDs, jumpers for board configuration, boot mode switches
- Power Supply – 5V via power barrel jack or USB-C port
- Dimensions – 13.46 x 7.6 cm
The board ships with a USB cable and a camera gender converter. Since the goal is to promote the company’s SiP, they’ve made available the PDF and EAGLE hardware design files for the board. “Trusted Debian” and “Trusted OpenSTLinux” MicroSD card images are also been made available and can be found together with the device tree files for Linux 4.19 and U-boot 2018.11, and a getting started guide on the product page.
It should also be possible to run mainline Linux on the board, as we’ve previously an STM32MP1 Pico-ITX board supported by Linux 5.11 mainline, and Olimex is about to launch its own STM32MP1 board with almost everything working on mainline Linux.
