TRITON-TX System-on-Modules

TRITON-TX ARM-based pin-compatible Modules

TRITON-TX are our pin-compatible family of production-ready modules based mainly on the Freescale i.MX family of ARM9 and ARM Cortex-A8 / ARM Cortex-A9 processors, including i.MX25, i.MX28, i.MX27, i.MX51, i.MX53, and i.MX6 including i.MX6 UltraLite as well as the quad ARM Cortex-A53 Snapdragon 410E from Qualcomm. Like other TRITON products, TRITON-TX modules combine longevity, quality and production-ready Windows CE, Android and Linux BSPs. TRITON-TX system-on-modules are ingeniously implemented on a tiny DIMM200 form-factor, ready to be incorporated into your product manufacture or prototype, and come complete with a Mainboard-7 development system, supplied running Windows CE 6.0, Windows Embedded Compact 7 / 2013, Android or Linux.

TRITON-TX family members include:

In addition to the individual features of each module, there are five overriding reasons to choose the TRITON-TX family:

longevity iconGuaranteed Longevity
Longevity is a major issue for ARM-based system-on-modules, as they don’t conform to any industry-standard pinout. Since the first system-on-module shipped in 2002, we have guaranteed the lifetime of our products. For our i.MX based products longevity guarantees are underwritten my Freescale, who offer 10 to 15 year minimum lifetimes for the i.MX ARM-based range. We expect to shadow the Freescale lifetimes and additionally offer our customers a contractual 7-year longevity guarantee for TX-modules.

We are still shipping every TRITON system-on-module model that we have introduced, since 2002, and believe that the best test of any supplier in this regard is to ask both what they guarantee for the future, and to ask about the products that they were promoting 5 years ago. Many vendors introduce new products at such a rate that products generally disappear after as little as a year, and never reach a state of stable, complete software support.

european manufactureBecause the TRITON-TX modules are manufactured in a high-quality small-batch production facility within the EU, there are never problems with manufacturing standards or with supply. If you order 100 modules and we don’t have them in stock, we will make them. Often, modules are produced in large batches by volume-oriented contract manufacturers in the Far East, and once they are gone, they are gone, until orders for at least 5,000 accumulate in order to justify a run.
tickOur BSPs for both Linux and Windows CE are complete, and are designed so that you can use them without further development or modification. One of the key advantages of the system-on-module approach is rapid time-to-market, and this cannot be realised if there is an unknown amount of extra work to be done to achieve a complete production ready hardware + software platform.
compatibleThe TRITON-TX modules offer a high degree of pin-compatibility. It is therefore possible to design baseboards which are ready for different TRITON-TX family members, so that decisions on processing power can be deferred until the application is finished and tested, without delaying completion of hardware design. Additionally, products may be upgraded as new, more powerful TX modules become available.
