Variscite, a leading worldwide System on Module (SoM) designer, developer and manufacturer, today announced the launch of the VAR-SOM-AM62, powered by the Texas Instruments AM62x. Starting from only $33, the module provides an ideal solution for embedded industrial products that require high-performance and low-power.
The VAR-SOM-AM62 runs on 1.4 GHz Quad-core Cortex™-A53 with 400MHz Cortex-M4F and additional 333 MHz PRU real-time co-processors. It offers camera interfaces MIPI-CSI2, integrated 3D GPU along with dual LVDS display. The advanced feature set complements rich connectivity with certified dual-band Wi-Fi, BT/BLE 5.2, 3x CAN bus, dual USB, dual GbE and and supports industrial operating temperatures.
Pin Compatibility and Scalability
The SoM is a member of Variscite’s Pin2Pin product family, allowing developers to use the same carrier board design for a wide range of processors. Variscite customers enjoy significant long-term advantages as well as reduced development time, costs, and risks.
“The integration of the AM625x processor into the VAR-SOM-AM62 gives developers a solid foundation that combines performance and power efficiencies,” said Ofer Austerlitz, VP Business Development and Sales of Variscite. “These qualities along with its integrated interfaces generate a very attractive cost-optimized solution for present-day embedded edge devices.”
VAR-SOM-AM62 Evaluation Kits
The VAR-SOM-AM62 evaluation kits serve as a complete development platform for both evaluation and application development purposes and include the scalable Symphony carrier board and an optional LVDS display with a touch panel.
Availability and Longevity
The VAR-SOM-AM62 is included in Variscite’s long-term longevity plan and provides longevity of 15 years. Evaluation kits and stock item modules are available for production quantities orders, starting from only $33 per unit.
