AT91SAM9G20 (ARM9) Board, 2x USB Device, USB Host, Ethernet, uSD US$55.00

AT91SAM9G20 (ARM9) Board, 2x USB Device, USB Host, Ethernet, uSD

The FOX Board G20 is a "ready-to-run" Embedded Linux System perfect to use as a mini web server, network device or as a core module for your own embedded devices. A fully Open Source environment is available to customize and build your own kernel image or to develop user applications using standard GNU tools. The Fox Board G20 features a Atmel AT91SAM9G20 ARM9 CPU with 8MB of serial DataFlash, 64MB of SDRAM and up to 8GB of microSD Flash (microSD card not included).

The FOX Board G20 includes:

  • Netus G20, Atmel AT91SAM9G20 ARM9 CPU module
  • Netus PS1 regulated power supply module (built in)
  • CR1220 RTC battery not included

FOX Board G20 Embedded Linux System Features

FOX Board G20 is a Single Board Computer built around the Atmel AT91SAM9G20 ARM9 core based microcontroller running at 400MHz.

Thousands of applications can be installed on the FOX Board G20 thanks to the ARM9 version of the most popular Linux distributions: Debian, Ubuntu, Gentoo, OpenWRT, OpenEmbedded and full support for a huge set of popular program languages like C, C++, Python, Perl, Java, PHP, Tcl, etc.

Two 40-pin expansion sockets with 2.54mm pin spacing are available to connect the board to add-on boards. On these pins 3.3 Volt signals are available which can be used to implement RS232/RS485/RS422, I2C, SPI, GPIO, A/D and PWM interfaces.

  • Designed around the Netus G20 ARM9 400MHz CPU module
  • Two USB 2.0 host ports (12 Mbits per second)
  • One Ethernet 10/100 port
  • One USB device port (12 Mbits per second)
  • One debug serial port (3.3v)
  • Two serial ports (3.3v)
  • One serial port for 4D Systems OLED displays
  • On-board microSD socket (up to 8GB)
  • DC power supply input (4V ... 5.5V stabilized DC voltage supply required)
  • Real Time Clock with on-board lithium backup battery
  • GPIO lines (3.3v)
  • 4 A/D converter lines
  • I2C
  • SPI
  • Quad power supply Netus PS1 module on-board. This module provides the different DC voltages required by the AT91SAM9G20 CPU
  • Full mechanical compatibility with the FOXCASE enclosure.
  • Fully compatible with FOXGM2 GSM Modem & GPS Module Carrier, PROTO-1 and PROTO-2 boards.

Note: The FOX Board G20 does not work without a microSD card that contains the rootFS. A microSD card with rootFS card is not included. It can be ordered as an optional add-on option at the bottom of this page.
