Embedded Starterkit STKa28 Evaluation kit based on TQMa28

Arm9™ with i.MX28

  • All functional CPU pins lead out on module connectors
  • Compact dimensions
  • IEC 61850 Stack
  • Extended temperature range
  • 2x IEEE1588 Ethernet (L2 Switch)
Evaluation kit based on the Minimodule TQMa28 with the processor i.MX28 from NXP and offers a well-balanced ratio between computing and graphics performance. The basis for this is an Arm926™ core with up to 450 MHz. The memory expansion implemented on the module provides the best system support. The module is ideally suited for smart metering as well as simple visualization and control tasks. Due to the high integration of interfaces and functions in the CPU, a multitude of interfaces and module functions are realized. This enables a simple and cost-effective baseboard development. All functional pins of the processor are routed to the module connectors. IEC 61850 TQ and SystemCORP based on TQMa28 offer cost-effective solutions for intelligent networks based on the IEC 61850 standard.
SystemCORP has developed the software stack over the last few years, from academic solutions to industrial maturity, and adapted it to the TQMa28.
