Premier Farnell has launched the EDM6070AR-01, a fully-integrated embedded display module (EDM) that pairs an ARM9-based single board computer (SBC) with a 7” LCD and touch-screen assembly. According to Premier Farnell CTO David Shen, the multi-function embedded EDM is powered by Atmel’s AT91SAM9X35 industrial microprocessor (MPU).
“The EDM6070AR-01, designed as an all-in-one solution, is ideally suited for a variety of embedded control HMI (human machine interface) applications including industrial control terminals, intelligent instruments, medical products, network terminals as well as data acquisition and analysis,” he explained.
“The module has a plate with display, connectors and place for the Mini6935 module with ARM microcontroller.”
The module also includes a pre-loaded Smart-Home demo app with an intuitive smart-LED controller that allows users to set independent light levels in each room, regulate temperature and humidity, play streamed audio files and manage surveillance cameras.
Aside from Atmel’s ARM-based MPU, key EDM6070AR-01 specs include:
- 128MB DDR2 SDRAM
- 256MB NAND Flash
- 4MB Data Flash
- 24-bit TFT LCD module, 7” (800 x 480, 24-bit color depth)
- four-wire resistive touch-screen
- SD card interface
- Power supply: +12V@1.25A
On the software side, the EDM6070AR-01 is packaged with Linux BSP, offering support for Linux QT GUI (Graphical User Interface) and multiple file systems such as FAT and NTFS. As noted above, the SBC is also supplied with a Smart Home demo app and a number of example applications for developers.
The EDM6070AR-01 is available for $179 with the 7” LCD, although a standalone CPU module can be picked up for $69. Both are live on Farnell element14 in Europe, Newark element14 in North America and element14 in APAC.
