Embedded Module TQMa335x Embedded module based on Cortex®-A8 (AM335x) with graphics and real-time support.

Arm® Cortex®-A8 (AM335X)

  • Real-time communication subsystem
  • Low power consumption (typ. 2 W)
  • 2x IEEE1588 Ethernet (L2 Switch)
  • Long-term availability
The basis is an ARM® Cortex®-A8 core with up to 1 GHz. The LGA module was specially developed for use in high-volume projects. The memory expansion implemented on the module provides the best system support. The module is ideally suited for visualization and control tasks with real-time requirements. 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 LGA pins. Note on ordering information: Further variants are available on request.
