The SoM-A5D36 is a System on Module (SoM) based on the Atmel ARM Cortex A5 ATSAMA5D36 processor. Designed and manufactured in the USA, this wide temperature, fanless ARM 536 MHz SoM has 10/100/1000 BaseT Ethernet PHY included on the SoM along with up to 6 serial ports. The SOM-A5D36 offers up to 4GB of eMMC Flash, up to 16MB of serial data flash, and up to 512MB of LP DDR2 RAM. The SoM-A5D36 and variations offer a second RMII 10/100 Ethernet MAC "EMAC" interface to use on the carrier board, to support a second LAN PHY. While also offering APM sleep mode, which allows for low power consumption, while still supporting real-time operating systems (RTOS) such as Xenomai. A SoM is a small embedded module that contains the core of a microprocessor system.
Using the same small 200 pin SODIMM form-factor utilized by other EMAC SoM modules, the SoM-A5D36 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-A5D36 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 customer's 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.
The SoM-A536P option supports Realtime Ethernet on dual 10/100 BaseT network connections with IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) V1 & V2 modes off the TI DP83640 Ethernet PHYs. This SoM provides two 10/100 clock synchronized network connections for real-time network operations. One of the TI DP83640 Ethernet PHY Chips is on the SOM module, the second is an RMII 10/100 Ethernet MAC "EMAC" connection provided to the carrier board for the second network PHY. This second EMAC is wired to a TI DP83640 Precision PHYTER™ - IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol Transceiver on the SOM-215GS carrier board.
In addition to the option of 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 theSoM-A5D36 is the SoM-200GS which allows the user to immediately start coding their application using the powerful Linux Operating System and Tools. The SOM-200GS carrier offers the availability of wireless features of 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0.
The System On Module approach provides the flexibility of a fully customized product at a greatly reduced cost.
