Low Power ARM9 System on Module



Carbondale, Illinois, Dec 1, 2010 – EMAC, Inc., announces the SoM-9G20, a 32-bit System on Module (SoM) based on the Atmel ARM9 AT91SAM9G20 400 MHz processor running WinCE 6.0 or Linux. A SoM is a small embedded module that contains the core of a microprocessor system.

Using the same small 144-pin SODIMM form-factor utilized by other EMAC SoM modules, the SoM-9G20 is the ideal processor engine for your next design. All of the ARM processor core is included on this tiny board including: Flash, Memory, Serial Ports, Ethernet, I2S Audio, PWMs, Timer/Counters, A/D, Digital I/O lines, Clock/Calendar, and more.

The SoM-9G20 is designed to plug into a carrier board that contains all the connectors and any custom I/O required for the application. This approach allows the customer or EMAC to design a Custom Carrier Board, that meets the customer’s I/O, dimensional, and connector requirements without having to worry about the processor, memory, and standard I/O functionality. With this System on Module approach, a semi-custom hardware platform can be developed in as little as a month.

In addition to the option of the developing a Carrier board, one can be purchased off-the-shelf from EMAC. EMAC provides off-the-shelf Carrier boards that feature A/D, D/A, MMC/SD card, keypad, LCD, and Audio interfaces. The recommended off-the-shelf Carrier Board for the SoM-9G20 is the SoM-150ES which allows the user to immediately start coding their application using the powerful WinCE or Linux Operating Systems and Tools.

When developing CE 6.0 application for the SoM-9G20, Microsoft Visual Studio 2005/2008 can be utilized. For Linux application development, EMAC provides a Free Eclipse IDE. Both Visual Studio and Eclipse provide everything the user needs for developing SoM-9G20 applications. All the compiling, converting, downloading, and debugging inherent to software development can be done from one easy to use high level interface. EMAC provides an SDK for the SoM-9G20, which contains source examples and drivers.

The SoM-9G20 is ideal for any Web/Network Data Acquisition and Control application. The price of the SoM-9G20 starts at $155 USD at quantity one. For additional information go to: http://www.emacinc.com/som/som9G20.htm.
