VAR-SOM-OM54 System On Module SOM

The VAR-SOM-OM54 adapts to the most advanced manufacturing capacities, based on the OMAP5432, 1.7Ghz Cortex-A15, offering a CPU performance boost of over 50% as compared with the OMAP4460.

VAR-SOM-OM54 System On Module SOM

"The fastest ARM System-on-Module today! leverages the cutting edge of mobile computing for embedded and industrial product designs."

delabs Ideas and Notes-

When you see things like Smartphones and Tablets you know that embedded developers are more empowered today. This is due to the fact that component technologies have advanced rapidly, more zap for a given footprint.

More Memory, Less Power Consumption, Excellent Computing Power. Interactive Display (Touch Screen) have just made amazing things possible within a limited Gadget Real Estate.

When uC - uP pack more juice for a given battery life and configurable OS like Linux are used. The OS will not be a burden on the CPU.

Regulated Resource usage + Good CPU power = Fast Gadget Apps

Freeduino Board and KIT

Things are easier than before, there is so much more you can do with this. Starting with a Embedded Project with Arduino type of uC is easy. A PC USB inteface for testing your code. Analog Interface is good for trying out Measurement or Robotic Projects.

Freeduino began as a collaborative project to publish open-source Arduino-compatible production files. The files that resulted from this project allow users to create boards that are 100% functionally, electrically and physically compatible with Arduino hardware. Over time, Freeduino has come to mean hardware that is "Arduino-compatible".

Arduino and Freeduino Knowledge

Arduino and Freeduino Knowledge

Freeduino is a free-form version of the Arduino, in that is not developed under a centralized design process.There is no Freeduino team, or anyone to ask permission of: anyone, anywhere, can design and produce a Freeduino product, no questions asked, no royalties paid.

It's sort of like electronic harware anarchy- or democracy, depending on how you look at it. We derived the Freeduino files from Arduino for exactly this reason: to see what the Arduino project would have looked like if it had open hardware distribution and manufacturing.
