tx-reverse-160pxTRITON-TX48 TI AM335x module with Compact 7 and Linux

Production Quality System on Module powered by 720MHz ARM Cortex-A8

tx48-250x114TRITON-TX48 is a 68mm x 26mm SODIMM system-on-module with Texas Instruments’ low-cost, mid-range Sitara™ AM3354 ARM Processor featuring 720MHz ARM Cortex-A8 core, and graphics system with OpenGL ES 2.0, on-chip, as well as a wide range of connectivity including high speed USB 2.0 Host and OTG ports, and dual CAN interfaces. TRITON-TX48 comes with Windows Embedded Compact 7 and Linux BSPs.

The TRITON-TX48 features 256MB of of high performance DDR3 RAM and 128MB NAND Flash, as well as power management, real-time clock and Ethernet and USB PHY provision. The module takes a single 3.0 to 5.5v supply and offers flexible 3.3v I/O.

The TRITON-TX48 is suited to a wide range of tasks, including high end user interfaces, digital signage, and handheld devices, thanks to the AM3354’s graphics processing unit as well as the ARM Cortex-A8 processor’s integrated NEON Floating Point unit.

calendarGuaranteed lifetime is a key reason to choose us – some TRITON products have already been shipping for over 10 years. The TRITON-TX module family is guaranteed to be available, in small or large quantities for at least 10 years. This is a minimum, with expected lifetimes of 15 years where possible. Direct Insight brought the first system-on-module to market in 1999, and has a unique track-record in maintaining partnership with our customers for the long-term, supporting you throughout the product life-cycle.
euBecause 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, cheap modules are produced in large batches by volume-oriented contract manufacturers in the Far East, and once they are gone, they are gone.
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 requires a reliable, production-ready BSP, and a ready-to-roll compatible tools setup. For Linux, we supply a pre-configured VM SDK, and for Windows CE, everything is ready to use with Microsoft’s downloadable toolkit.
compatibleFurther to our 10-year longevity guarantee, additional security is provided by the pin-compatible nature of the TRITON-TX range, which means that suitable baseboard designs can take all the modules from this family, including those based on i.MX25, i.MX27, i.MX28, TI AM3354, i.MX51, i.MX53 and i.MX6, and allows older modules to be replaced by the latest designs, with new features, better price-performance, and renewed longevity.
directinsight-logo-100pxStriving for the best technical support provision to our customers is what makes Direct Insight stand out. Using a system-on-module is all about achieving a quicker, smoother route to project completion. We have supported our customers in many hundreds of system-on-module projects over the last 15 years, and are uniquely placed to assist you.

txmainboardloMainboard-7 provides a complete development environment based on TRITON-TX48, running mainline Linux or Windows Embedded Compact 7 out-of-the-box. The development system consists of a baseboard which provides an unpopulated bank of 0.1″ headers for all 200 module pins, plus connectors for all the main module interfaces, and includes additional peripherals such as an SGTL5000 audio codec. Other connectors include USB, Ethernet, SDCard, CAN, RS-232 and RS-485. The Mainboard-7 offers an optional 640×480 capacitive touch screen, and an LVDS output to enable connection of other screen sizes. For production purposes, you will require a custom baseboard, and we are happy to offer baseboard design and manufacture as a service.
