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

OSM Size-0 ESP32 module

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

SudoMaker X1501 Pico EVB

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 […]

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 […]

Rockchip RK3588 CPU module exposes more I/Os through four board-to-board connectors

RD-RK3588 development board

We’ve already seen several Rockchip RK3588 modules with Firefly Core-3588J, Turing RK1, and Banana Pi RK3588_CV1, all with an edge connector to insertion into the carrier board. Rongpin RD-RK3588 system-on-module is a little different with four board-to-board connectors that enable a slightly more compact design, and should expose more I/Os than say a 314-pin MXM edge connector. The module ships with up to 16GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage, a Rockchip RK806-1 PMIC, and the company also offers a development kit with RD-RK3588-B baseboard fitted with the module for evaluation and early software development. RD-RK3588 board-to-board module RD-RK3588-C core module specifications: SoC – SoC – Rockchip RK3588 octa-core processor with 4x Arm Cortex-A76 cores @ up to 2.4 GHz, 4x Arm Cortex-A55 cores, Arm Mali-G610 MP4 GPU with support for OpenGL ES3.2, OpenCL 2.2, Vulkan1.1, 6 TOPS NPU, 48MP ISP, 8Kp60 video decoding, 8Kp30 video encoding System Memory – […]
