Based on the TI Sitara AM335x, the TRITON-TX48 brings the performance of ARM Cortex-A8, and OpenGL ES graphics acceleration to cost-conscious industrial applications. The module ships with production-ready BSPs (Board Support Packages) for Linux and Windows Embedded Compact 7.
With 720MHz ARM Cortex-A8 core, and SGX530 graphics accelerator, the AM3354 powering the standard version of the TRITON-TX48 is equal to the requirements of systems providing a touch and gesture based GUI. The TRITON-TX48 can drive a resistive or capacitive touch-screen display up to 1366 x 768 in resolution, and a broad range of interfaces include USB 2.0 Host and On-the-go, SD Card, I2C, Audio, multiple UARTs, and SPI. These interfaces can in turn connect a broad range of services out-of-the box, including WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and GPRS. The module, which is pin-compatible with the rest of the extensive TRITON-TX family, also offers dual Ethernet, including support for gigabit data rates.
The TRITON-TX48 measures just 26mm x 68mm, and features full industrial spec. including -40C to +85C temperature range.
For development purposes, the TRITON-TX48 is supplied with the StarterKit-5 development system, which allows development of compatible target environments across the TRITON-TX range. The StarterKit-5 ships with an optional range of compatible touch screens of both capacitive and resistive types, with resolutions from 320×240 to 800×480. Full schematics of the development system baseboard are provided so that in production this can easily adapted to provide a custom system with the addition of the module.
The TRITON-TX48 begins shipping this month. Pricing depends on configuration and volume, and different processors within the AM335x family will be supported.
