Embedded Image Processor Board Goes Industrial

Chiseled for next generation embedded imaging applications, Critical Link’s MitySOM-A10S-DSC processor board features dual-side connectors for stack-through configurations. It is described as a highly-configurable system-on-module (SoM) featuring the Intel/Altera Arria 10 SoC with dual core ARM and up to 480KLE FPGA fabric. The module includes on-board power supplies, two DDR4 RAM memory subsystems, and a comprehensive set of user interfaces. 


The A10 board supports both OpenCL and high-level synthesis (HLS) tools for accelerating design cycles and targeting C/C++ code to the FPGA. With embedded Linux for operating system support, applications include machine vision, test and measurement, embedded instrumentation, industrial automation and control, and industrial and medical instrumentation.
