Strategic Test Rolls Out PXA270 Embedded System On Module (SOM)

Strategic Test has extended their range of PXA270 SOMs with the release of the low-cost TRITON-270. Priced at 112 Euro, the module includes a 312 MHz PXA270 processor, 32 MB SDRAM, 32 MB NOR Flash and a 200-pin SODIMM connector.

Measuring just 1.2 x 2.6 x 0.16 inches (67.6 x 31 x 4.2 mm) and still the world’s smallest PXA270 SOM, the TRITON-270 is a complete PXA270 computer on a module that has been optimized for mobile embedded designs where low-power consumption and extremely small size are critical. A Development Kit that allows the 270 to run out-of-the-box is available with Linux kernel 2.6 or Windows CE 5.0 pre-installed.

In addition to the standard PXA270 power management capabilities, the Triton-270 also includes a Programmable Core Voltage Generator. This unique feature allows the user to vary the PXA270 supply voltage from 1.3 to 1.1 V to further reduce power consumption.

The TRITON-270 uses a 200-pin SODIMM connector to bring out all of the PXA270′s internal signals. These include: integrated LCD controller for direct connection to a display; a PCMCIA interface; Bluetooth UART; Baseband/Multimedia interface; USB 2.0 ‘On the Go’ interface; Memory Stick controller; MMC/SD/SDIC interface; I2S and AC ’97 interfaces; three SSP and three Asynch serial interfaces; keypad interface; GPIO and four PWM interfaces.
