TS-7553-V2

IoT-Ready SBC with Reliable Storage, Cell Modem, XBee, PoE

Starting at $119 (Qty. 100)

Highlights

  • Robust Embedded Solution Providing Connectivity via Cellular, WiFi, BT, Xbee
  • Robust TS-SILO Option Provides 20 - 60 Seconds of Backup Power
  • Flexible Data Storage: High Reliability pSLC or High Capacity MLC eMMC Flash
  • Extendible with Daughter Board Allowing Cell Modem and PoE Cards

This versatile embedded single board computer hits on all the main points for a low power, cost effective, Internet-of-Things (IoT) capable, and ready-to-deploy OEM board with an emphasis on data integrity. Not only does the TS-7553-V2 have flexible connectivity options like cellular modem, XBee, WiFi, and Bluetooth, it also has eMMC flash configurable as pSLC or MLC and on-board power reserve via optional TS-SILO technology. The TS-SILO option provides up to 30 seconds of backup power when the power goes out, ensuring opportunity to run your shutdown scripts to avoid data corruption. The eMMC flash configured in a pseudo-SLC mode provides maximum flash data storage reliability. A microSD card slot is equipped for larger files like data logging. A low cost plastic enclosure is available to protect the TS-7553-V2 from the elements.

A productive out-of-the-box experience includes pre-installed Linux OS and utilities for controlling DIO, UARTS, CAN bus, and more. The development kit makes sure you have all the necessarily connections and cables to get off the ground quickly. Familiar development tools, such as GCC and GDB, are included for developing directly on the board. If you prefer to develop using an IDE on another computer, cross compile toolchains are available through Debian Multiarch support.

The TS-7553-V2 also serves as a platform upgrade path for the original TS-7553, providing a footprint drop-in and high application code portability that is less expensive, faster, and provides more features than the original.

Hardware

The TS-7553-V2 single board computer features desktop-class hardware in a small, enclosable footprint, featuring:

  • NXP i.MX6UL 528MHz or 696MHz ARM Cortex-A7 CPU
  • 512 MB DDR3 RAM
  • 4 GB MLC eMMC Flash, configurable as 2 GB pSLC for added reliability

Industry standard connectors, such as USB host and device ports, Ethernet, and serial ports, are included. In addition, rugged screw terminals and a user programmable button are also included. Additional storage is possible through the microSD socket. A battery-backed real time clock (BBRTC) keeps accurate time for the system and a watchdog timer is there to help when a system becomes unresponsive in the field.

The TS-7553-V2 features popular I/O and interfaces, including:

  • 2x CAN Bus
  • 1x RS-485
  • 3x RS-232
  • 1x Relay
  • 1x XBee Interface (can support NimbeLink cell modem and XBee)
  • 1x Cellular Modem
  • 1x Wireless and Bluetooth Module

Applications with strict low power requirements will appreciate the work that's been done to reduce power consumption to less than 2 watts in typical conditions and 9 mW sleep mode. Also, applications which are prone to unexpected power outages or frequent power cycling can rely on the optional TS-SILO to provide up to 30 seconds of power reserve in order to run shutdown scripts and gracefully halt the system in order to prevent filesystem and disk corruption.

Other options for the TS-7553-V2 include Power over Ethernet (PoE) and Cellular Modem for convenient power and remote communication with cellular networks. Also, an optional low cost monochrome 128x64 px LCD and 4 button keypad for HMI is available, both located on the top of the enclosure. An optional DIN mount makes it easy to mount to DIN rails for an fast off-the-shelf solution.

Software

We've preloaded most everything you need to get your application up and running quickly. The well equipped U-Boot bootloader loads Linux 4.1.15 U-Boot shell and further boots into a complete and familiar Debian Jessie distribution. Utilities and tools are preloaded to help you get the most out of the hardware features, like interfacing with the 128x64 px LCD and 4 button keypad for example. Other utilities make it easy to read and monitor voltage input to automatically perform a safe shutdown using TS-SILO. Power management tools also exist for bringing the board into and out of standby mode.

In keeping with the open source vision, we have the source code and binaries freely available for download from the TS-7553-V2 FTP repository and Github page. Further questions about available software can be answered by contacting our engineers via support.
