i.MX51 SODIMM PC - Development kit Basic


Voipac provides complete schematic of the i.MX51 SODIMM Module and 1-month free technical support to every complete development kit.

The embedded development system based on i.MX515 ARM CortexTM-A8 CPU clocked up to 800MHz has been designed to be used as a fully functional Embedded PC or as a development platform for the Voipac i.MX51 SODIMM Module, so-called computer on module (COM), which includes all of the technologically and development demanding parts, thus significantly reduces one's own application development time.

The VMX51 system on module is targeting the automotive as well as the general industrial markets, such as: point of sales, gaming machines, navigation systems, autopilots, netbooks, multimedia systems, security and surveillance systems, handheld PCs, and many other fields, where there is a benefit of using operating system.

The i.MX51 hardware development kit can be supplied in various configurations, thus allowing fine tuning of the targeted device specification. A simple SODIMM Module replacement represents a possibility of getting powerful system out of economic one. The module comes with a preinstalled OS based on Linux kernel 2.6 and GNU utilities. Support for Windows CE and other operating systems is under development.

The development kit is used to get acquainted with the platform and represents the possibility of parallel SW and HW development. At the final stage of design period, the developed application can be easily placed into your own, more economic base board together with the Voipac SODIMM Module. Voipac provides the schematics of the Voipac i.MX51 SODIMM Module and SODIMM Base Board to make the custom baseboard design even easier. With such a support, it is possible to design and set up a new device in a very short time.
Voipac provides the service of a customized base board design, prototyping, certification or volume production. 

The i.MX51 Development kit further provides configurable switches, buttons, GPIO pins and LEDs for simple user interaction, thus simplifying programming of one's own applications. Among the most significant attributes of the i.MX51 platform is low power drain with excellent MIPS/mW performance enabling usage in a battery-operated devices, high CPU performance, plenty of available interfaces and glueless connectivity to various passive and active LCDs with 4-wire resistive touch screens. The DVI-I connector provides direct connectivity to a generic CRT or TFT screens, supporting maximum XVGA resolution of 1280x768 pixels in a 16 bit mode. Besides all the standard PC peripheral interfaces you are used to, the system provides numerous communication channels as well as universal expansion slots and connectors.
Support for the nonstandard or customer's peripherals can be realized upon request. 

The i.MX51 EMBEDDED PC - Development kit Pro is supplied in a stylish aluminum case with the following I/O connectors:
- 1x RJ45 (10/100Mbps Ethernet)
- 1x VGA DVI-I (analog + digital video output)
- 1x RS232 DSUB9 male (terminal output)
