Regulus - Rapid Development Kit

 

e-con Systems has developed a carrier board for the evaluation purpose and customers can use this carrier board to develop their products and can use the BSP provided by e-con. Customers who intend to design customized carrier boards on eSOM270 can use the evaluation kit with WinCE/Linux BSP and can customize it to their platform they would intend to build. All the pins of PXA270 Microprocessor are brought to the SODIMM connector of eSOM270 - XScale/ARM Computer on Module and hence all the interfaces supported by PXA270 can be put in to use. For more details and other features visit Regulus platform page and Developer resources for documentation.

A computer on module (COM) is a type of single-board computer (SBC) and a subtype of an embedded computer system. The Computer on module is a complete computer built on a single circuit board. The design is centered on a single microprocessor with RAM, input/output controllers and all other features needed to be a functional computer on a single board. Computer on Modules are highly integrated component SBCs that support system expansion and application-specific customization.

Why eSOM270 Computer on Module?

 

eSOM270, a PXA270 Module with XScale processor can be used by customers who have the need for small changes in their design to suit the requirements of multiple customers. Another important factor for going in favor of the system on module approach is the volume. When the volume is low, going in for a module based solution is cost effective and faster. The time to market has become an important criterion and customers would not want to invest heavily on their development activities and would want a faster product development cycle.

Most of the time the Carrier boards designed around the eSOM270 is just 2 layered and hence faster design and manufacturing time. All the pins of PXA270 Microprocessor are brought to the SODIMM connector of eSOM270 and hence all the interfaces supported by PXA270 can be put in to use.
