The TS-7390 is a compact full-featured Single Board Computer (SBC) based upon the Cirrus EP9302 200MHz ARM9 CPU, which provides a standard set of on-board peripherals. This product features an on-board FPGA with a dedicated 8MB RAM Framebuffer and a 800x480 video core integrated with a 7-inch Color TFT-LCD panel with TouchScreen Interface, as shown by the TS-TPC-7390 product pictures. The TS-7390 boots Linux2.6 out-of-the-box from on-board NAND flash or an SD Card and the included Debian Linux distribution provides driver and software library support for embedded video/touchscreen applications.
The TS-TPC-7390 is a low-cost, industrial-grade WVGA touchscreen computer with audio codec and speaker.
Utilizing a low-power EP9302 ARM9 CPU, it requires no fans or heat-sinks. Reliability is enhanced through entirely solid-state operation
with no moving parts. The rugged aluminum support elegantly frames the 7-inch TFT LCD, making it an ideal solution for mounting on a
wall or cabinet. The computer unit is mounted to the back of the panel, providing access to a wide variety of connectors including
2 10/100BASE-T Ethernet ports, 2 full-speed USB ports, DIO, and serial ports. The unit runs Debian Linux 2.6 and Debian Sarge out of the
box and is suitable for a wide range of HMI-type and simple GUI applications.
The TS-7390 Engine
The TS-7390 single board computer powers the TS-TPC-7390 Touch Panel Computer. The TS-7390 features a multi-purpose
200MHz ARM9 CPU. It allows for development of multi-function embedded applications through its multiple peripheral interfaces,
which include on-board RAM, NAND flash, dual 10/100 Ethernet ports, dual USB 2.0 hosts, serial ports, SD card socket, A/D channels,
digital I/O lines, temperature sensor, real time clock, audio codec and speaker, video framebuffer, touchscreen, and LCD video interfaces.
The 40-pin header provides the following features:
- I2C Bus and SPI Bus
- 4 12-bit ADC
- 6 Latched Outputs
- 7 Buffered Inputs
- 3 Digital Inputs/Outputs
- 1 Console COM Port (requires TS-9445 mini-peripheral for RS-232 levels)
- External Reset, Power, Ground, Frame, and JTAG signals
The default load for the 5K LUT LatticeXP2 FPGA provides additional peripherals, such as SD card socket, extra serial ports, and a
800x480 Color TFT-LCD video core. In addition, the FPGA provides an 8-bit multiplexed expansion bus for inclusion of application-specific
daughter cards, with the connector pins connected straight to the FPGA.
The TS-7390 engine is extremely rugged and reliable. Temperature operation is fanless and range is industrial standard at lower
CPU speeds. The LCD is rated for storage temperature range of -30 to +80 degrees Celsius.
The operating range is -20 to +70 degrees Celsius.
Power input range is flexible from 5V DC to 28V DC. The power supplies for both the LCD and the LCD back-light are controlled via software.
The TS-7390 provides multiple COM ports using both TTL (2 total) and RS-232 levels (4 total). Two optional RS-485 ports are also
available with DMX/RDM support. The EP9302 processor provides two COM ports (TTL Console at the JTAG header and RS-232 at COM1 header).
The remaining COM ports are provided by the FPGA through the proprietary TS-UART core and are 9-bit serial capable.
LCD-Ready Embedded Computers
The TS-7390 is designed specifically as the engine for the TS-TPC-7390. The connectors are not general purpose and will not work
with most LCDs, so we do not generally sell the TS-7390 as a stand alone board. If you have an interest in using the TS-7390 in your project,
please call us for information about pricing or product customization. Also, for customers looking for a custom SBC solution for their LCD+TouchScreen
interfaces of choice, we recommend customization of the TS-7350/TS-7370 LCD-Ready FPGA computers.
