Guaranteed lifetime is a key reason to choose TRITON family products, some of which have already been shipping for over 10 years. The TRITON-TX family of modules is guaranteed by us to be available to buy, in small or large quantities for at least 10 years. In addition we expect to shadow the Freescale lifetimes and additionally offer our customers a further lifetime extension.
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.
Further to our 10-year longevity guarantee, additional security is provided by the pin-compatible nature of the 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.
For development purposes, every TRITON-TX module plugs into a StarterKit-5, and powers up running Windows CE mainline Linux. The StarterKit allows you to begin application development immediately on a platform which is actually a superset of your final production hardware and software. A simple custom baseboard derived from the StarterKit design is then created to suit your application, or you can choose an off-the-shelf baseboard such as TRITON-TXFB or TRITON-TXCT.
The production quality Board Support Package (BSP) which is supplied as part of the package is ready for your application , the module is plugged in, and the production platform is complete. A custom baseboard can be designed by you, and checked by us free or charge, or created by our services group, But by keeping the high-speed multilayer electronics on the module, this task is made relatively inexpensive and quick.
