SomIQ-AM35 benefits:

  • SomIQ-AM35 modules offer a wide range of industrial interfaces including Hi-End CAN controller.
  • SomIQ modules are designed to increase reliability and MTBF because because they get heating less. Less heating means lower aging of components on modules. Modules are made on the strengthened printed-circuit boards with 1 oz copper thickness.
  • SomIQ modules are pin-to-pin compatible throughout the family with minor differences because of different processor features.

AM3517/05 is a high-performance ARM Cortex-A8 microprocessor with speeds up to 600 MHz. The device offers 3D graphics acceleration while also supporting numerous peripherals, including DDR2, CAN, EMAC, and USB OTG PHY that are well suited for industrial applications.

The processor can support other applications, including:

  • Single Board Computers
  • Industrial and Home Automation
  • Digital Signage
  • Point of Service
  • Portable Media Player
  • Portable Industrial
  • Transportation
  • Navigation
  • Smart White Goods
  • Digital TV
  • Digital Video Camera
  • Gaming

The device supports high-level operating systems (OSs), such as:

  • Linux
  • Windows CE
  • Android™
  • QNX

The following subsystems are part of the device:

  • Microprocessor unit (MPU) subsystem based on the ARM Cortex-A8 microprocessor
  • POWERVR SGX™ Graphics Accelerator (AM3517 Device only) Subsystem for 3D graphics acceleration to support display and gaming effects (AM3517 Device only)
  • Display subsystem with several features for multiple concurrent image manipulation, and a programmable interface supporting a wide variety of displays. The display subsystem also supports NTSC/PAL video out.
  • High performance interconnects provide high-bandwidth data transfers for multiple initiators to the internal and external memory controllers and to on-chip peripherals. The device also offers a comprehensive clock-management scheme.
