Development Kit Kickstarts Freescale i.MX25-Based Designs

Targeted at embedded applications where small size and low power consumption are critical, the TX-STAR is claimed as the world’s first Freescale i.MX25 processor-based system-on-module (SOM) and development kit. The i.MX 25 is derived from the popular i.MX32 processor and based on the ARM926EJ-S core. The kit measures just 67.6 x 26 x 3.5 mm (2.6” x 1” x 0.09”) and contains a 400-MHz i.MX25 processor coupled with 64 Mbytes of SDRAM, 128 Mbytes of NAND flash memory, and a 200-pin SODIMM connector. The TX-STAR is pin-compatible with the existing TX27 i.MX27 processor and TX37 i.MX37 processor-based modules. All modules can be supplied with the company’s Development Kit-5 hardware reference platform. The TX-STAR is available with both Linux and Microsoft Windows Embedded CE 6.0. Features of the TX-STAR include 10/100-Mb/s Ethernet connectivity, USB 2.0 functionality, an LCD controller, a still-picture camera interface, and numerous standard peripheral interfaces. The system-on-module is priced at $79 each. STRATEGIC TEST, Woburn, MA. (866) 898-3278.
