Five of our valued third party design partners have created hardware modules to help you get to market faster with Sitara™ AM437x processors.
1. SVTronics – SOM437X Board
SOM437X is a System-On-Module for AM437x CPU. It has AM437x, DDR3, PMIC(TPS65218), eMMC or NAND FLASH, Gigabit PHY on board and uses 2.0mm DIP connector. Except for the DDR3 pins and power pins all CPU pins have been connect out to the DIP Connector. SOM437X module dimension are 66x66x10mm, 5V power input, power consumption is 2W typical.
2. bytes@work – byteENGINE AM437x
The new byteENGINE AM437x module demonstrates the capabilities of the Sitara AM437x processor with ARM Cortex-A9 clocked at 1 GHz.
The main functions are available on one of the three plug-in connectors for a variety of applications, such as medical, measurement and motor drive control.
3. Variscite VAR-SOM-AM43 CPU
The new VAR-SOM-AM43 CPU showcases the quad-core PRU on the AM437x. These are ideal for offloading real-time processing from the main Cortex CPU, managing deterministic tasks and supporting dedicated industrial protocols. The PRUs alongside the rich industrial connectivity of the VAR-SOM-AM43 makes it an optimized solution for products targeting automation, robotics, controllers, HMI and other industrial segments.
4. Mistral – AM437x Product on Module (POM)
Mistral’s AM437x Product on Module (AM437x PoM) is a low cost, small footprint, high performance, easy-to-use Product on Module (PoM). With extensive integration such as quad core PRU-ICSS, PowerVR SGX 3D acceleration core, dual camera, QSPI-NOR, up to 512KB on-chip memory, dual ADC and an easily extendable architecture, the AM437x PoM is the perfect solution for developers looking at faster time-to-market of their products.
5. MYiR – Rico Board
The Rico board is equipped with 512MB DDR3, 4GB eMMC Flash, 16MB QSPI Flash and 32KB EEPROM on board. Additionally, it has rich peripherals including a Debug serial port, USB 2.0 Host and Device ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, TF card slot, HDMI port, dual camera interfaces, LCD interface, etc. Two 2.54mm pitch 40-pin expansion connectors allow the availability of more I/Os for peripheral signals like two SPI, two I2C, two CAN, four UARTs, one MMC and eight-channel ADC. The Rico Board is capable of running Linux operating system and provided with Linux 3.14.0 SDK of which the kernel and many drivers are in source code. MYIR also offer a complete Rico Board development kit that includes a Rico Board, necessary cable accessories, an optional 7-inch LCD Module (including capacitive touch screen) and detailed documents to enable rapid development when customers getting the board out-of-the-box.
