The SoM, based on the Linaro 96Boards specification, can be used in production systems as well as for development. STM32MP1 combines multicore MPU performance with industrial longevity. Its heterogeneous architecture, combining two 650MHz Arm Cortex-A7 application processor cores and one 209MHz Arm Cortex-M4 core, lets users run open-source applications such as a Linux-based human-machine interface (HMI) on top of real-time control. Featuring a Vivante 3D GPU with OpenGL ES 2.0 support, it is suitable for entry-level to mid-range MPU applications such as industrial communication, motor control, or building automation.
Creating the Avenger96 Board & System on Module, Arrow worked with design specialist DH electronics to integrate high-speed interfaces for users to unleash STM32MP1’s performance. These include Gigabit Ethernet and HDMI ports, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) radio, USB2.0 including OTG and dual Host interface, two-lane MIPI DSI display output, and CSI-2 camera input.
Targeting embedded and smart-building applications, Avenger96 is compliant with 96Boards Consumer Edition extended version. This lets users leverage open-source community software development and take advantage of the large variety of 96Boards-compatible mezzanines, choosing from hundreds of add-on cards by third-party partners to quickly extend functionality, with features such as context sensing, image capture, IoT WAN connectivity, and many others.
