Atmel-powered AT-501 heads to EMEA

Arrow Electronics and ShiraTech will be bringing the jointly developed, Atmel-powered AT-501 system-on-module to customers in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

“Combining a system-on-module with comprehensive development tool and software support eases the design process and reduces the development costs,” said Jacko Wilbrink, senior product marketing director, Atmel Corporation.

“These advances are critical for Arrow’s customer base.”

The AT-501 is built around Atmel’s ARM-based SAMA5D3 Cortex-A5 system on chip. According to a ShiraTech rep, the platform offers an optimal balance of the most power efficient Cortex A to date with a high performance CPU running at 536 MHz and a floating point unit.

The AT-501 is designed as a ready-to-use embedded control and processing module for applications such as medical and industrial devices, with low power consumption making the platform especially suited for battery-powered appliances.

Additional key AT-510 specs and features include:

  • Controller module – Ready to use embedded control and HMI module.
  • Low power consumption – SoC power consumption less than 200mW @536Mhz with all peripherals activated; supports multiple power efficiency modes.
  • Extensive connectivity – Equipped with GE with IEEE1588, FE, multiple CAN, UART, SPI and I2C interfaces.
  • Display and touch screen – Graphic LCD TFT controller scaling to 1280×720 pixels, resistive touch screen support.
  • Software
 – Integrated Linux OS from ShiraTech or Timesys corporation.
