The TX48 is one of the smallest CoM in the world and based on TI's Sitara AM3354 processor. Mounted on the base board, the module only takes up just under 18.5 cm² (26 mm x 71 mm including the socket) and facilitates a maximum construction height of just 4.5 mm.
TX48: Target markets
- Medical technology
- Industrial control
- Digital signage
Often, devices are required in different performance and price classes. This is where ’s TX standard comes into its own. With one single hardware design embedded engineers can produce a range of pin- and software-compatible products. introduced the TX CoM standard over six years ago. Until today, the Starter Kit 5 has served as the unchanged development environment for all TX modules underlining ’s long-term product and family strategy. All the TX modules can be used on the Starter Kit 5 which enables great scalability and flexibility.
Reduce to the max – the product philosophy
The philosophy behind the TX CoM family is to reduce a CoM down to the absolute minimum of components. In doing so, application designers and engineers using CoMs can achieve maximum flexibility. TX CoM modules solely feature the processor plus memory and the power supply. Any additional functions can be added to the base board.
Longevity for OEM's is Key
This focus on CoMs with a minimum number of components is on the one hand the key to very competitive pricing, on the other hand it enables to ensure long-term availability. While processor manufacturers like Freescale offer a long-term availability of 10 to 15 years, this must also apply to any further components integrated onto a module or these must be available via second sourcing and without any necessary software alterations. If these components are integrated on a module, as is the case with many other manufacturers, this long-term availability is endangered, or – from right from the start – not possible to guarantee.
The microprocessor unit (MPU) subsystem is based on the ARM Cortex-A8 processor and the PowerVR SGX Graphics Accelerator subsystem provides 3D graphics acceleration to support display and gaming effects.
