Strategic’s TX48 computer-on-module uses TI AM3354 processor
10 year product availability and pin-compatibility with all Strategic TX CoM’s
Stockholm, Sweden –Strategic Embedded’s Computer-on-Module (CoM) portfolio is expanding once again to embrace the new TX48. Alongside the CoMs with processors from Freescale and Marvell, this latest addition to the CoM family is based on the AM3354 processor from Texas Instruments.
In Strategic’s 'Made in Germany' module range, the TX48 is positioned between the low-cost modules TX25 and TX28 and the high performance module TX53 designed for graphic-intense applications. The TX48 ideally rounds off the portfolio not only due to its 720 MHz clock speed, but also in terms of price/performance. At the same time, the TX48 is pin-compatible with all the other Strategic TX modules so that application designers are able to develop scalable and flexible, future-proof solutions.
The Ka-Ro TX48 Computer-on-Module with its compact size of only 68 mm x 26 mm (SO-DIMM) is suited to applications in industrial environments thanks to its extended temperature range of - 40 to + 85°C. 256 MB DDR3 SDRAM (16 bit) and 128MB NAND Flash ROM provide ample memory and 10/100 Mbps Ethernet and two high-speed USB 2.0 ports as well as 3x 4 Wire UARTs and a generous selection of connections for peripherals, such as CAN, LCD, I2C / PWM, SD-CARD, are standard features of the CoM specialists' new module.
As with all other TX modules, for the TX48 Strategic guarantees a long-term availability of 7 years. Owing to its TX compatibility the Starter-Kit development environment will be available directly to coincide with the launch of the module. This enables developers to achieve an optimum in time-to-market and allows them to concentrate on their own individual application-specific adaptations.
Both Windows CE and Linux are available as operating systems for the Strategic. The single unit net price of the TX48 will be 89 euros.
