Description

The CM-T3530 is a small computer-on-module (CoM) / system-on-module (SoM) board designed to serve as a building block in embedded applications. The CM-T3530 has all the components required to run operating systems such as Linux and Windows CE. Ready packages for these operating systems are available from CompuLab.

The small size and low power consumption of the CM-T3530 allows its integration into hand-held and mobile devices, while its low price makes it an ideal selection for cost-sensitive applications. The CM-T3530 delivers a price / performance ratio significantly better than that of any other platform.

CM-T3530 is based on Texas Instruments OMAP3530 processor which combines two CPU cores in single package - an advanced Cortex-A8 ARM CPU for running operating system and application code, and TMS32064x DSP for dedicated video processing. Low voltage Mobile DDR enables very low power consumption in regular operation and in standby. For embedded applications, the CM-T3530 provides a general purpose local bus, 100Mbit Ethernet, serial ports, I/O lines and other essential functions, while integrated WiFi interface implement industry standard wireless connectivity.

The standardized CAMI ("CompuLab's Aggregated Module Interface") connectors of the CM-T3530 module allow interchangeability with other Computer-On-Module's available from CompuLab, enabling the flexibility required in a dynamic market where application requirements can change rapidly..
