A31-uQ7 quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 SoM with Allwinner A31
The A31-uQ7 system-on-module from Theobroma Systems is a powerful yet cost-effective solution incorporating a quad-core Allwinner A31 processor running at up to 1.2GHz with up to 2GB DDR3 RAM, high-throughput on-module eMMC, versatile PowerVR SGX544MP2 graphics, and a multi-format video co-processor.

Based on the QSeven standard, the module offers a high-performance, DMA-capable, Gigabit Ethernet interface, up to 8 USB ports, HDMI and dual LVDS display, UART, I2S, I2C and SPI, as well as  SATA and SD Card support. Use the module with the development kit for instant out-of-the-box application development results, and plug in to your own baseboard for a complete industrial solution.

In addition to a comprehensive Debian Linux BSP , Android support is available. Software-programmable DVFS (digital voltage and frequency scaling) manages power consumption, and 25mW suspend-to-RAM is supported.

Unboxing the devkit

An on-module ARM Cortex-M0 subsystem offloads communications protocols and allows real-time processing, as well as providing additional features such as CANbus, low-power RTC and watchdog.

The module measures just 70 x 40mm, operates from a single 5V supply, and is complemented by a mini-ITX form-factor development baseboard, which ships with Linux pre-installed on microSD card.

The Mini-ITX form factor development baseboard offers a comprehensive development environment based on A31-uQ7, running Debian Linux out-of-the-box. The development system consists of a baseboard which provides connectors for the main module interfaces, including SD Card, SATA, USB, GPIO, HDMI, LVDS, Ethernet and RS-232. Additional facilities include an audio codec with audio in/out to 3.5mm jacks, JTAG connector, a buzzer and RTC coin-cell holder. For production purposes, most projects require a custom baseboard, and we are happy to offer baseboard design and manufacture as a service.
