OSM Size-0 solder-on LGA module comes with ESP32 WiFi & BLE MCU

German embedded systems company iesy’s ESP32 OSM-0F is an ESP32-based solder-on LGA system-on-module that complies with SGET OSM Size-0 (30x15mm) form factor, offers WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, and more. The SGET Open Standard Module (OSM) standard defines four module sizes, namely Size-0 (30x15mm), Size-S (30x30mm), Size-M (45x30mm), and Size-L (45x45mm), and all the modules we’ve covered so far were powered by a Linux-capable processor. But it’s more challenging, albeit not impossible, to design a Linux-capable OSM Size-0 module, and that form factor is better suited to microcontroller-class chips like ESP32. (Technically, ESP32 can run Linux, but it’s more for show that any practical applications) ESP32 OSM-0F specifications: Microcontroller – Espressif ESP32 dual-core Xtensa LX6 MCU @ 240 MHz with 512KB RAM, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth/BLE Storage – 32 Mbit SPI flash Antenna – u.FL connector 188 LGA contact points with Storage – SDIO Networking – 1x 10/100M Ethernet (RMII), […]

X1501 Pico SoM – MIPS, Linux in a 16x16mm module

We’ve just written about the Notkia phone repurposing Nokia 168x phones with a new PCB featuring an Ingenic X1000E MIPS processor running mainline Linux, but it turns out the developer (Reimu NotMoe, CTO of SudoMaker) has also designed the X1501 Pico SoM, a tiny 16×16 system-on-module equipped with Ingenic X1501 MIPS system-in-package (SiP). The module can be that small because the single-core 1GHz Ingenic 1501 SiP embeds 8MB LPDDR, as well as apparently a 16Mbit NOR flash that stores stripped-down versions of U-boot and the Linux kernel, plus a minimal, busybox-based rootfs. X1501 Pico system-on-module specifications: SoC – Ingenic X1501 MIPS32r2 processor @ 1GHz, a MIPSr2 real-time core @ 300 MHz (not shown in datasheet), 8MB LPDDR and 16KB tightly coupled SRAM, 16Mbit NOR flash Castellated holes with USB 2.0 OTG, I2C, SPI, SDIO and DVP, analog mono audio output & digital microphone input EFUSE based Secure Boot Power Management […]
