The piA-AM3352 is a single board computer based on the ARM® Cortex ™ A8 architecture enclosed in industry standard top-hat rail housing. Its combination of above-average performance combined with high power efficiency makes the piA-AM3352 a good choice for mobile communication as well as stationary controller applications. Due to its small size it is the ideal solution, when there is not enough space for a full-sized PC system.

In addition to Ethernet, RS485 and USB, the system allows the exchange of data via CAN / CANopen and wirelessly via GPRS / UMTS. The communication of multiple modules can be done via a CAN-based DIN rail (DIN rail bus CH20M) which replaces the complicated individual wiring by an uninterrupted and flexible system solution.

The sustainability of the system is underlined by the use of Linux. Alternatively to this pre-configured Ångström based system, any Linux distribution that supports ARMv7 (e.g. Debian, Poky) can be used. For development of customized applications a cross compiler SDK (C / C, QT, diverse libraries) is available.

A performance upgrade is possible by exchanging the processor module.
