Running Windows CE or Linux and measuring 67.6 mm x 26 mm x 4.2 mm, the TX51 debuts as the first Freescale i.MX51 processor-based system on module (SOM). The ARM Cortex-A8 800-MHz i.MX51 processor teams with 128 MB of mobile DDR-SDRAM, 128 MB of NAND flash memory, and interfaces via a 200-pin SODIMM connector. Other features include LCD resolutions up to 1280 x 768, OpenGL ES 2.0 and OpenVG 1.1 hardware accelerators, a multi-format HD 720p video decoder and D1 video encoder engine, camera interface, NEON SIMD media accelerator, vector floating point unit, USB 2.0 OTG plus host, and 10/100 Mb/s Ethernet. Interfaces include three UARTs, two SDIOs, SSI/AC97/dual I2S/I2C, CSPI, keypad, and an external memory interface. Look for production volumes of the TX51 in the first quarter of 2010.
