The SoM-3354M is an ARM System on Module (SoM) based on the TI AM3354 Cortex-A8 processor. Designed and manufactured in the USA, this wide temperature 1GHz SoM utilizes 16MB of Serial Data Flash, 4GB of eMMC Flash (up to 16GB optional) and has 512MB of DDR3 RAM. Additional Flash storage can be had using the modules SDIO interface allowing the use of external SD flash cards.
The SoM-3354 has 4x Serial Ports, 10/100 BaseT Ethernet, 2x USB 2.0 High Speed Host Ports, 1x USB 2.0 High Speed Host/Device Port, 4x channels of 12 bit A/D, 4-Wire Resistive Touch Controller, and a 16-bit LCD Controller. The module also features an External Address/Data Bus for easy expansion, an Internal Real Time Clock/Calendar with external battery backup provision, 22x GPIO Lines, and 2x Timer/Counters/PWM. The SoM-3354 has 1x Synchronous Serial I/O (I2S) Audio port, 2x SPI Ports with 4 slave selects, 1x I2C Port, 1x CAN Ports, SDIO, and on module status (software controlled) LED.
Using the same small 200 pin SODIMM form-factor utilized by other EMAC SoM modules, the SoM-3354 is the ideal processor engine for your next design. All of the ARM processor core functionality is included on this tiny board including: Flash, Memory, Serial Ports, Ethernet, I2S Audio, PWMs, Timer/Counters, A/D, digital I/O lines, Clock/Calendar, and more.
The SoM-3354 is designed to plug into a carrier board that contains all the connectors and any custom I/O required for the application. This approach allows the customer or EMAC to design a custom carrier board that meets the I/O, dimensional, and connector requirements without having to worry about the processor, memory, and standard I/O functionality. With this System on Module approach, a semi-custom hardware platform can be developed in as little as a month.
In addition to the option of the developing a custom carrier board, one can be purchased off-the-shelf from EMAC. EMAC provides off-the-shelf Carrier boards that feature A/D, D/A, MMC/SD card, keypad, LCD, Audio, and Modem interfaces. The recommended off-the-shelf carrier board for the SoM-3354 is the SoM-200GS or SOM-250GS which allows you to immediately start coding your application using EMAC OE Linux and Qt Development tools.
EMAC is a global leader in system on module and carrier board embedded systems. The System on Module (SoM) is an ideal alternative to custom engineering. With the SoM approach you get the best of aspects of both buying an Off-The-Shelf Embedded Single Board Computer (SBC) and a Custom Engineered solution. With Off-The-Shelf embedded components such as a generic carrier board and SOM module, it is possible to start development on your software applications before the custom carrier board is complete; thus offering a reduced time to market for your system. A System on Module (SoM) is comprised of a small processor module with CPU bus accessibility and standard I/O functionality. The SoM module does not have any connectorization and is designed to be plugged into a Carrier Board.
