DAB Embedded a Belgium based embedded design house has launched probably the smallest system on module running Linux.
- Size: 20mm x 20mm x 2.5mm(H) and Weight: ~3grams
- Microchip’s ARM Cortex-A5 (SAMA5D2) core running at 500Mhz with NEON engine
- 128MBytes DDR2 memory
- 32Mbit / 4 MBytes of QSPI Flash (onboard). For Linux, external SD card or eMMC is needed.
- Peripherals (69 I/Os)
- LCD TFT support (24bit RGB) (Resolution upto1024 x768
- 5 Mega Pixels CMOS camera sensor interface (12 Bit Parallel)
- Audio interfaces (SSC, I2S)
- Capacitive touch controller
- USB 2.0 High speed ports (OTG and Host)
- 10/100 MBit Ethernet MAC (external phy is required)
- MicroSD memory interfaces
- Other interfaces like SPI, I2C, UARTs, CAN-FD, 12-bit ADC, PWM, GPIOs etc.
- Possible to run in low power mode
- RTC clock
- Operating Temperatures: -40 to 85 Degree C
- Operating voltage: 3.3V +-8%
- Bare metal SDK
- Embedded Linux + Uboot
Boot time (~30-35 Seconds)
While interacting with Art Staliarou, CTO of DAB Embedded I got to know a few details on power consumption:
- Linux running, idle (no commend running) = 160mA @ 3.3V
- Video capturing from OV5640 sensor = 250mA @ 3.3V
Documentation & Support
- Datasheet / Pinout details
- User Manual
- Getting Started Guide
- Schematic Symbol and Footprint (Altium Lib)
- Hane SOM Schematic
HMI with touch
Smart Camera with AI
