Cost savings without compromise

ES Aug13 Pg36 to 39 What's New AndersUser interface technology specialist, AndersDX, has released the CM-T335 computer-on-module as the latest product in its joint venture with CompuLab. The device is billed as the most cost-effective ARM Cortex A8 computer-on-module with prices from $27.

The CM-T335 is built around the Texas Instruments’ Sitara AM3352/4 system-on-chip (SoC) featuring a Cortex A8 ARM CPU coupled with a PowerVR SGX GPU. The SoC is supplemented with up to 512MB DDR3 and 1GB of on-board NAND storage. It also features a range of industry standard interfaces including Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi 802.11, Bluetooth, USB, CAN bus, serial ports, I/O lines and ADC channels.

CM-T335’s user interface includes a parallel 24-bit display connection with support for andersDX’s PCAP touch screen displays. This is said to enable an aggressively priced route for implementing an iphone type interface in non-consumer devices. Small size and low power consumption also suit portable and space constrained systems.
