The piAx-AM3517 is a single board computer based on ARM®‘s Cortex™-A8 with integrated POWER VR SGX™ graphics acceleration. For the visualization, the piAx-AM3517 has appropriate interfaces to connect, for example, an LCD display or camera module. If required, the system's functionality can be extended individually by various extension cards, so the piAx-AM3517 can be used with technologies such as WLAN, Bluetooth or RFID.
As a powerful and power-efficient OMAP single board computer the piAx-AM3517 is suitable for stationary and mobile communications and control tasks.
Due to its small size it is the ideal solution, when there is not enough space for a full-sized PC system. Our industrial PC can use whether Windows CE, Android, or embedded Linux as an operating system. For the application development a C/C++ Cross-Compiler-SDK and an Interpreter for Python, Perl, Ruby are available. The design of the piAx-AM3517 is based on the popular BeagleBoard, so that the software development is complemented by an active community.
