OSM Size M SiP Integrates STM32MP1 MPU for industrial & IoT applications

MSMP1 STM32MP1 SiP

ARIES Embedded MSMP1 OSM-compatible system-in-package (SiP) based on STM32MP1 CortexA7/M4 microcontroller for Industrial and IoT applications follows the company’s MSRZG2UL and MSRZFive OSM-compatible SiPs with Renesas Arm or RISC-V microprocessor introduced a few months ago. But instead of coming in the ultra-compact 30×30 mm OSM Size S form factor, the new MSMP1 complies with the larger 45x30mm OSM Size M form factor with a total of 476 contacts to allow for more I/Os. The SiP also integrates 512 MB to 4 GB DDR3L RAM, and 4 to 64 GB eMMC flash. MSMP1 SIP specifications: SoC – STMicro STM32MP1 single or dual-core Arm Cortex-A7 processor up to 800MHz, with Arm Cortex-M4 real-time core up to 209MHz, Vivante GPU compatible with OpenGL ES 2.0 System Memory – 512MB – 4GB DDR3L RAM Storage – 4GB – 64GB eMMC NAND Flash 476-contact LGA with Networking – Gigabit Ethernet USB – USB 2.0 Host/OTG […]

ARIES Embedded unveils OSM modules based on Renesas Arm or RISC-V microprocessor

In another case of “Arm or RISC-V? Why not both“, ARIES Embedded has introduced “MSRZG2UL” and “MSRZFive” OSM compliant system-in-packages (SIPs) based on respectively Renesas RZ/G2UL Arm Cortex-A55/Cortex-M33 and RZ/Five AX45MP RISC-V microprocessors and designed for industrial controllers, IoT devices, and embedded systems with a basic GUI. Both solder-on modules come in the OSM Size S form factor (30x30mm), 512MB to 4GB of DDR4 RAM, a 4GB eMMC NAND flash, various interfaces including Gigabit Ethernet and CAN-FD, and are available in either commercial (-0°C to +70°C) or industrial (-40°C to +85°C) temperature ranges. “MSRZG2UL” and “MSRZFive” specifications: SoC MSRZG2UL module – Renesas RZ/G2UL single-core Cortex-A55 processor @ up to 1GHz with Cortex-M33 real-time core @ up to 200MHz MSRZFive module – Renesas RZ/Five single-core RISC-V AX45MP processor @ to 1.0 GHz System Memory – 512MB – 4GB DDR4 RAM Storage – 4GB eMMC NAND Flash 332 contacts with Display I/F […]

ARIES M100PF PolarFire FPGA System-on-Module Targets Industrial Applications, RISC-V Development

ARIES M100PF RISC-V FPGA SoM

MicroSemi unveiled PolarFire RISC-V FPGA SoC at the end of last year, bringing an alternative to Xilinx Zynq (Arm Cortex-A9 + FPGA) and UltraScale+ (Cortex A53 + FPGA) SoCs. The system-on-chip is expected to be mass produced later in 2019, so development is done on HiFive Unleashed RISC-V board and its FPGA expansion board. In the meantime, MicroSemi PolarFire FPGAs (without RISC-V hard core) are available now, and ARIES Embedded planning to showcase what they claim is the first PolarFire FPGA system-on-module at Embedded World 2019 with their M100PF SoM targeting industrial applications. ARIES Embedded M100PF key features and specifications: A choice of 3 PolarFire FPGAs MPF100T – 109KLE, 336 Math Blocks (18x18MACC) MPF200T – 192KLE, 588 Math Blocks (18x18MACC) MPF300T – 300KLE, 924 Math Blocks (18x18MACC) System Memory – 512 MiB / 1 GiB / 2 GiB DDR3 RAM Storage – 256 MiB configuration device, 4 GiB eMMC flash […]

Open Source Hardware SpiderSoM System-on-Module Features Intel MAX 10 FPGA

aries embedded spidersom

When embedded systems companies offer a system-on-module (SoM) and a baseboard, the later is usually open source hardware with all design files provided so that customers can leverage the work for their own baseboard, but files for the SoM are normally not released to customers. Intel MAX 10 FPGA based Aries SpiderSoM and SpiderBase change that, as the company has decided to release both the module and carrier board KiCAD designs under a CERN OHL v1.2 license. SpiderSoM system-on-module specifications: FPGA – Intel MAX 10 FPGA in F256 package from 10M04DC to 10M50DA System Memory – Optional 128/256/512MB DDR3 DRAM for 10M 16/25/40/50 FPGAs Storage – Optional 4 MB SPI NOR, optional 4 GB eMMC flash 230-pin MxM2 edge connector with 178x FPGA GPIO pins, including 13 LVDS transmitters and 54 receivers Misc – RTC with battery backup,  programmable clock generator and PLL, with optional external reference input Power Supply […]
