The TS-4800 is a TS-SOCKET macrocontroller board based on the Freescale i.MX515 ARM Cortex-A8 CPU running at 800MHz. The TS-4800 features 10/100 Ethernet, high speed USB host and device (OTG), microSD card, and 256MB XNAND drive.
The TS-4800 is a low profile, credit card sized TS-SOCKET macrocontroller module which features an 800MHz Freescale ARM Cortex-A8 and a 5K or 8K LUT Lattice XP2 FPGA. With 256MB RAM and a bootable 256MB on-board flash drive with industrial grade SLC XNAND technology, the TS-4800 is a powerful and extremely reliable embedded solution. External devices can connect to the TS-4800 via Ethernet, USB host, USB device, I2C, SPI, UARTs, or GPIO. Additionally, an external 16-bit address/data bus can be implemented through the use of 21 DIO pins. The two 100 pin downward-facing general-purpose headers make it easy to interface the TS-4800 with a standard TS-SOCKET baseboard or a baseboard of your own design.
With the powerful Cortex-A8 system on chip, 256MB RAM, and a single precision FPU, the TS-4800 is the most powerful computer offered by Technologic Systems. With LCD and touchscreen support, the TS-4800 is an ideal engine for a touch panel computer such as the TS-TPC-8390.

- MicroSD card connector (or external full size SD)
- 256MB SLC XNAND storage
- LCD output with video playback acceleration
- FPGA touchscreen controller interface
- One-wire interface
- Up to 50+ DIO/GPIO**
- Temperature Sensor***
- Watchdog timer
- Hardware random number generator
TS-SOCKET is an embedded computer standard designed and controlled by Technologic Systems, Inc. It defines both a form factor and a connection pin-out and is based on two 100-pin low-profile connectors, allowing secure connection between a TS macrocontroller (CPU board) and a baseboard. Please refer to the TS-SOCKET Standard and Embedded Macrocontrollers resource for more information.
Technologic Systems XNAND technology is an ultra reliable and industrial grade user-space device driver that uses Reed-Solomon codes, extra checksums, and a RAID-based technique to allow any Linux filesystem to be used with confidence on SLC NAND flash. Our TS-BOOTROM can also boot from XNAND for an ultra-reliable bootup. Please refer to the XNAND whitepaper for more information.
