OMAP35x Torpedo SOM
Available from Logic PD
Logic PD's Torpedo System on Module (SOM) is an ultra-compact form factor based on Texas Instruments' OMAP35x processor family.
The OMAP35x Torpedo SOM provides a dime-sized module solution for applications that require low-power and high-performance within tight space constraints. By using the 0.4 mm BGA pitch OMAP processor that leverages Package-on-Package (PoP) technology, the Torpedo SOM requires 45% less surface area and 12% less volume when compared to the equivalent OMAP 0.65 mm BGA package and external memory solution.
A discrete design using the 0.4 mm BGA package requires advanced PCB technologies that result in higher board costs in addition to PoP technology which requires specialized manufacturing assembly processes. The Torpedo SOM solves these development complexities; as a result, customers can design lower cost baseboards and utilize common manufacturing procedures while still benefiting from the small package OMAP35x processor and PoP technology.
The ultra-compact Torpedo SOM is an ideal off-the-shelf solution for applications in markets where space is a premium. From point-of-care medical devices to bar code readers, handheld radios to mobile Internet devices, netbooks to CCTV cameras, the Torpedo SOM allows for powerful versatility, compact designs, and long-life products.
The Zoom OMAP35x Torpedo Development Kit includes all of the necessary accessories to immediately begin development, helping customers deliver their products to market sooner.
