TS-7600

Low Cost ARM9 Compact Embedded Computer

Starting at $94 (Qty. 100)

Highlights

  • Ideal for Space, Budget, and Power Constrained Applications at 1.2 W Power
  • Unique Design Possibilities with OpenCore, Programmable 5K LUT FPGA
  • Easily Interfaces via 44-pin Header Providing UART, GPIO, SPI, and More
  • Redundant Data Solution with RAID-like Dual microSD Sockets
  • Connectable via Industry Standard Connectors Ethernet, USB, CAN, I2C

The TS-7600 is an ultra-compact embedded computer module based on a 454MHz NXP i.MX283 ARM9 processor. This board includes a 44 pin header and a 26 pin header with external interfaces for DIO lines, SPI, I2C, UARTs, or custom FPGA logic.

Hardware

The TS-7600 provides a migration path from the TS-7500/TS-7550 offering a performance increase, and additional pins for more flexibility. The TS-7600 is based on the NXP i.MX283 running at 454MHz with either 128MB or 256MB of DDR2 RAM. The TS-7600 features 10/100 Ethernet, high speed USB hosts, and 2 MicroSD sockets. The battery backed real time clock is a standard feature which is temperature compensated to 0.5ppm accuracy.

The TS-7600 also includes a software programmable Lattice XP2 5K LUT FPGA which by default implements several of our controllers such as our high speed SD interface, XUARTs, and SPI controller, and more. The customizable FPGA allows logic which can be tailored for your project in verilog, or using our FPGA customization services. This allows simple additions of features such as pulse counters, quadrature, pwm, uarts, custom PID loops, and much more.

Software

The TS-7600 SOM boots a Linux 2.6.35 kernel out of the box from one or both MicroSD cards, as well as an initial ramdisk for a very fast boot and a Debian Wheezy (7.0) distribution for extremely flexible software. The Linux choice is highly recommended and our products are totally integrated with the open-source vision. There is no proprietary source code in the kernel since all the hardware specific functionalities are handled by user-space utilities (such as spictl, sdctl, xuartctl, etc.). The Linux kernel includes driver support for on-board hardware, enabling quick time to market of end-users applications.

The Debian Wheezy environment provides a powerful, stable, and familiar software stack. Debian Wheezy provides over 28,000 software packages precompiled for the ARMEL architecture. This includes many common interpreters such as Python, Mono (C#), Ruby, PHP, TCL, Perl, Java, and Bash. Debian also includes the GNU Compiler Collection which allows compiling C/C++ directly on the board.

The software image includes an initial ram filesystem which boots immediately after the kernel is loaded and can execute custom userspace code within seconds after power is applied. The initial ramdisk features a minimalistic busybox build for a fast boot, but it is also capable of executing binaries in Debian

Software features include:

  • Linux v2.6.35 (Kernel Upgade to v3.14.28 Also Available)
  • Full Debian Wheezy (7.0) distribution
  • Opencore FPGA reloadable in software
  • Flexible programming language support
  • Source code examples available
