piA-AM3505

Overview

The piA-AM3505 is a single board computer based on ARM®'s 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-AM3505 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 piA-AM3505 allows data exchange via CAN and GSM / GPRS. Additional features such as Wi-Fi, RFID, Bluetooth, LCD displays, cameras, IO-Ports can be added via customer-specific expansion boards.

The sustainability of the system is underlined through the use of state of the art operating systems (embedded Linux, Windows CE and Android). In addition to interpreters for Python, Perl ea. included the base system, the piA-AM3505 comes with an open-source Linux based C/C++ cross compiler SDK for native application development.

Since the piA-AM3505 is based on the wide-spread Beagle-/Craneboard designs, there is a large and actively supporting open-source development community.
