National Instruments has introduced an embedded System-on-module (SOM) development board with integrated Linux-based real-time operating system (RTOS).
Processing power in the 2” x 3” SOM comes from a Xilinx Zync-7020 all programmable SOC running a dual core ARM Cortex-A9 at 667 MHz. A built-in low power Artix-7 FPGA offers 160 single-ended I/Os and Its dedicated processor I/O include Gigabit Ethernet USB 2.0 host, USB 2.0 host/device, SDHC, RS232 and Tx/Rx. Power requirements of the SOM are typically 3 to 5 W.
The Ni SOM integrates a validated board support package (BSP) and device drivers together with the NI Linux real-time OS. The SOM board is supplied with a full suite of middleware for developing an embedded OS, custom software drivers and other common software components.
