Starting from only $39 USD, the latest highly configurable offering from Variscite ticks all the right boxes for ultimately affordable System-on-Module (SOM) based-design. No longer priced out of the technology and time-to-market advantage, manufacturers are discovering that the VAR-SOM-AM33 has flung open the door to a whole range of cost-sensitive designs.

Supporting the 720MHz Sitara™ AM335x ARM® Cortex™-A8 processor from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) with a rich 2D/3D graphics accelerator, this latest offering from Variscite provides a powerful and flexible selection across the full spectrum of applications. For example, particular specs like the -40 to 85°C temperature range and dual CAN bus make it ideal for industrial applications such as automotive, control systems, lighting, refining and processing. With Ethernet, USB, touch controller audio and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, the VAR-SOM-AM33 is also highly integrated with support for a wide range of operating systems.

Key features include:

• Sitara AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 processor at up to 720MHz

• 256MB DDR3

• 512MB NAND Flash

• Integrated Imagination PowerVR™ SGX530 2D/3D hardware accelerator

• Gigabit Ethernet

• TI WiLink™ 6.0 single-chip combo Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® solution

• USB 2.0: Host, OTG

• Audio In/Out

• Industrial temperature -40 to 85°C

"In a market driven by tightening budgets and demand for streamlined development and production cycles, it was difficult for many manufacturers to find embedded application solutions," said Uri Yossef, Software Team Leader at Variscite. "We're excited to introduce the VAR-SOM-AM33, our latest System on Module and the first of its kind to achieve an authentic balance between an unbeatable price tag and impressive feature-set. The high speed, generous memory, extreme temperature ranges and graphic-intense interfaces support of the VAR-SOM-AM33 promises a fast time to market with minimal risk and development time for the full breadth of industrial applications."

"We are pleased to continue our engagement with Variscite as it expands its successful portfolio of SOMs based on TI processors," says Miller Adair, Sitara ARM processor general manager at TI. With the addition of the AM335x processor for its latest System-on-Module VAR-SOM-AM33, Variscite is simplifying the design effort for custom solutions. The new SOM combines Variscite's competence in hardware and software with TI's expertise in highly integrated processors and wireless connectivity, providing customers with a solid base to develop differentiated products and get to market faster."
