ROHM and Embedded Artists (EA) have co-developed an ultra-compact System on Module (SOM), pairing the i.MX 7Dual MPU from NXP Semiconductors with ROHM’s new BD71815GW PMIC. The SOM, which measures just 27mm by 37mm, offers users the computing power of both ARM® Cortex-A7 and Cortex-M4 cores along with 8GB eMMC, 1GB LP-DDR3, and a host of peripherals – all efficiently powered by single integrated power management and charger IC.
The small size of the SOM enables space-sensitive applications (i.e. handheld terminals, security cameras, home automation), while the SOM board and adapter allow access to all I/O & peripherals available on the i.MX 7D applications processor.
Users can purchase the SOM directly from EA or through its distributor Digi-Key. An available adapter board connects the SOM to an existing EA carrier board to provide a cost-effective development system (EVK) for fast prototyping.
