This System-on-Module makes it possible to integrate a whole computer into a device, significantly simplifying the customization of the device. This is why we are able to offer fast turnaround customization of all our products.
At the core of each Chipsee product lies a System-on-Module. This means all the products share the same core. It makes your application easily upgradable – without needing to rewrite a single line of code your application is upgraded, thanks to the same System-on-Module.
This product features the CS-SOM335X-V3 System-on-Module, based on the AM3354 ARM Cortex-A8 processor.
The AM3354 microprocessor is enhanced with image, graphics processing, peripherals and industrial interface options such as EtherCAT and PROFIBUS. The devices support high-level operating systems (HLOS).
The microprocessor unit (MPU) subsystem is based on the ARM Cortex-A8 processor and the PowerVR SGX™ Graphics Accelerator subsystem provides 3D graphics acceleration to support display and gaming effects.
Contact us for further details if you want to buy the CS-SOM335X-V3 separately.
Display and Touchscreen
EPC-A8-97-C features a 9.7’’ display with a 1024×768 pixel resolution, and a 5-point capacitive touch screen. 5-point capacitive touchscreens offer a stable and accurate control over the device, as well as great image clarity.
The screen offers very high brightness of 350 nits. When it comes to the viewing angle, the screen offers various angles: top, bottom, left, and right view.
