Buildroot

The Linux BSP (fsvybrid V2.2) contains the customized Linux Kernel Source Code (v3.0.15), the customized U-Boot Source Code (2014.07) and a customized Buildroot (2016.05), as well as our Cross-Toolchain. The package also holds our standard binaries of the Linux Kernel Images, U-Boot and a UBIFS Root Filesystem. For a first impression, the Root Filesystem based on Buildroot has the following features installed:

Busybox 1.20.x, gdb 6.8, alsa-utils, gstreamer, madplay, directFB, fbv, X.Org rel-7.5, Matchbox, feh, X11vnc, openssl, openssh, freetype, glib2, tslib, libv4l, ncurses, can-utils, iproute2, ftpd, httpd, telnet, tftp

The BSP also contains our First-Step documentation and example applications.

Windows Embedded Compact 2013

As the very first company we can offer WEC 2013 for Vybrid processors.
The highly flexible and hard real-time operating system has kernel, interface drivers and bootloader. It benefits from all the features of a modern CPU, such as ARMv7 THUMB2 command structure or NEON co-processor.
Complete images and the BSP are available in our download area.
Development is done with the latest Microsoft tools like Visual Studio 2015 (C, C++, C# or VB.NET) and Expression Blend 5.
Interfaces like I²C, CAN or SPI can be used in the same way like a RS232 interface.
XAML for Windows Embedded helps to separate visualisation and program the easy way.

Our FailSafe Flash File System F3S is also available in Compact 2013.

The SBC... ...with convincing Equipment

Highlight Features

  • Cortex-A5 500MHz
  • Cortex-M4 167MHz
  • 1 GB Flash
  • 512 MB RAM
  • LVDS or RGB

The advantage of Single Board Computers (SBC) is, that they can be applied without a base board, and therefore they are especially suited for quick "Time-To-Market".

Asymmetric Multiprocessing

The basis of the armStone™A5 is the Dual-Core CPU (Asymmetric Multiprocessing) by NXP. The Vybrid CPU is suitable for industrial environments and is long-term available (10 years and more). It owns two cores: Cortex-A5 - 500MHz and Cortex-M4 - 167MHz. Functions such as 2D acceleration and Window-Layer, FPU, as well as NEON are also available.

 

The armStone™A5 can be equipped with up to 512Mbyte DRAM and up to 1GByte Flash, but 128Mbyte NAND Flash are already enough to boot a complete Windows Embedded CE or Linux directly from Flash.

Various Interfaces

Optionally, the board can be upgraded with a micro-SD card.
The board offers interfaces like USB Host/Device, 2x LAN, 3x RS232, 2x CAN, SPI, I²C, Audio (IN/ OUT/ MIC) partly on standard connectors or on plug connectors.

Additionally, a LVDS interface is available (max. resolution up to XGA) or as an alternative, a RGB interface up to SVGA. Touch panel interfaces for resistive and also capacitive touch are offered as well.
