Anders Electronics has released a miniature system-on-module device for powering high-end feature phones, netbooks, digital TVs, printers and automotive infotainment systems, for example.

The new Compulab CM-T3517 is based on the Texas Instruments (TI) Sitara AM3517/05 system-on-chip device and features the advanced Cortex-A8 ARM central processing unit (CPU).

Suitable for high-visibility, space-constrained industrial and retail products such as shelf-edge advertising, kiosks, dispensing machines, ticketing machines or elevator controllers, the CM-T3517 provides a set of multimedia, connectivity and storage features on a credit-card-sized system-on-module device.

Leveraging the power and flexibility of the TI Sitara AM3517/05 system-on-chip device, which is based on the advanced Cortex-A8 ARM CPU, the CM-T3517 enables embedded systems to provide the usability and connectivity that users expect, while still being developer friendly.

The CM-T3517 is offered with either a TI Sitara AM3517 or Sitara AM3505 with Cortex-A8 core (up to 600MHz), up to 256Mb DDR2, up to 512Mb flash disk including file system protection, a touch-screen controller supporting four-wire resistive panels and an onboard power management chip with a single 3.3V input or lithium-ion polymer battery.

The multimedia-ready system features a PowerVR SGX graphical processing unit (GPU) providing 2D/3D graphics acceleration with OpenGL-ES and OpenVG support, dual-output graphics (RGB and TV Out), a graphics controller supporting STN and TFT panels with 1,400 x 1,050 maximum resolution, a camera interface port and audio codec stereo line-out and microphone.

For connectivity, the CM-T3517 features a 100Mbps Ethernet port, integral WiFi 802.11b/g, a Bluetooth interface, MMC/SD/SDIO support including SDHC up to 32Gb, four serial ports, I2C, SPI, GPIOs and a CAN bus.

In addition to an on-the-go host/slave USB2 high-speed port, the CM-T3517 features an additional four USB2 host ports.

From a software point of view, the CM-T3517 was specially designed to serve as a building block in embedded applications and includes all the peripherals required to run operating systems such as Linux and Windows CE.
