10/100 Eth., Audio, Touch and LCD                                                                                                                                       

 

Overview

Bosphorus-II is second generation of cross-compatible computer module from Atlas Embedded Systems , that focusing advanced embedded applications because of high performance, highly integrated, all-in-one approach, power efficient, including many connectivitiy options and miniature size.

 

High performance CPU and true 2D/3D Graphics

Based on AM335X processors with up to 1 GHz from Texas Instruments with a NEON multimedia coprocessor that offers the module with more computing power and enhanced 2D/3D graphics accelerator up to 20Mpoly/sec to answer extensive range of industry applications. 

 

Memory 

Bosphorus-II is equipped with up to 512MB DDR2 SDRAM, up to 1GB NAND Flash, 8MB SPI NOR Flash and 64KB EPPROM for answering memory requirements in a modern embedded device

 

Connectivity

10/100Mbit Ethernet, second 10/100/1000Mbit ethernet option, USB2.0 High Speed OTG and High Speed Host, multiple UARTs are connectivity options to provided by the Bosphorus-II. 

 

Display and Audio

Bosphorus-II provides connectivity to passive and active LCDs with resolution up to 1366x768 resolution with 24-bit colour depth as well as 4-wire, 5 wire and 8-wire resistive touch screen controller. An on-board stereo audio codec allows record and play audio.

The module can be plugged into standart DDR SODIMM 200 pin connector very easily and this connector serves all processor signals to out to base board. It can be supplied with/without graphics accelerator, memory and connectivity options as well as commercial and industrial temperature range.

 

Single Power Supply

Because of requiring single supply it is very easy to design to baseboard without power headache.

Processor’s memory local bus is available for extension, such as FPGA, CPLD, high speed data transfers or connecting more peripherals.
