AM4378 Board, Gigabit Ethernet, USB, HDMI, 512MB DDR3, 4GB eMMC US$164.00

AM4378 Board, Gigabit Ethernet, USB, HDMI, 512MB DDR3, 4GB eMMC

  • Up to 1GHz TI AM4378 Sitara ARM Cortex-A9 Processor
  • 512MB DDR3 SDRAM, 4GB eMMC Flash, 16MB QSPI Flash, 32KB EEPROM
  • UARTs, USB Host/Device, Gigabit Ethernet, Dual Camera, microSD, etc.
  • Supports HDMI and LCD Display
  • Optional 7-inch LCD Module with Capacitive Touch Screen
  • Optional 3G, WiFi, Camera and GPRS Modules
  • Ready-to-Run Linux Single Board Computer
  • The Rico Board is a high-performance Single-Board Computer (SBC) using TI's AM4378 Sitara ARM Cortex-A9 solution. The A9 core provides an increase in performance compared to the ARM Cortex-A8 offerings. It features up to 1GHz of processing power, 3D graphics acceleration for rich graphical user interfaces, PRU-ICSS for industrial protocols, improved Vector Floating Point (VFP) unit and other peripherals and interface support like Quad-SPI, dual parallel cameras, two independent eight-channel ADCs, etc.

    This board is equipped with 512MB DDR3, 4GB eMMC Flash, 16MB QSPI Flash and 32KB EEPROM on board. Additionally, it has rich peripherals including a Debug serial port, USB 2.0 Host and Device ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, microSD card slot, HDMI port, dual camera interfaces, LCD interface, etc. Two 2.54mm-pitch 40-pin expansion connectors break out more I/Os for peripheral signals like two SPI, two I2C, two CAN, four UARTs, one MMC and eight-channel ADC.

    The Rico Board is capable of running the Linux operating system and is provided with Linux 3.12.10 SDK of which the kernel and many drivers are in source code. The board ships as a complete kit that includes an Ethernet crossover cable, a mini-USB cable, an HDMI cable, a 4GB microSD card, a 5V/2A power adapter and a disk with user manual, schematic, datasheets and the software package. At the bottom of this page you can add an optional 7-inch LCD Module (including capacitive touch screen), as well as 3G, WiFi, Camera and GPRS modules so you can get the most out of the board.

    The Rico Board can be used as an evaluation module (EVM) for the AM4378 processor. It also can be used directly in your embedded products. Typical applications are industrial automation, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), bar code scanners, portable data terminals, test and measurement, patient monitoring and human machine interface (HMI).
