The EXM32-AU1250 CPU module from MSC Vertriebs GmbH offers high processing performance, unique multimedia features, and extreme low power consumption. The device is designed especially for harsh industrial environment and complies to the System-On-Module-Standard EXM-32 developed by MSC.
The EXM32-AU1250 is based on the RMI(TM) Alchemy(TM) Au1250(TM) RISC-CPU with 16 kB Data and 16 kB Instruction Cache. It is available in two models. In the commercial variant, specified for a temperature range from 0 to 70 °C, the processor operates at a clock frequency of 600MHz. The variant for the industrial temperature range (-40 to +85 °C) operates at 500MHz. Up to 256 MB DDR2-SDRAM and a maximum of 128 MB NOR-Flash are provided on the board. On demand up to 512 MB NAND-Flash can be integrated in addition.
The EXM32-AU1250 CPU module supports MPEG1/2/4 abd video decoding of WMV and DivX. The LCD UMA graphic controller offers a maximum resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels. In addition to connections for a flat panel, a CRT and an 8-bit wide BT.656 camera, a number of I/O interfaces are available. 2 x UART and 2 x USB 2.0 High Speed (Host/Client) are supplemented by a 10/100BaseT-LAN interface, 2 x CAN 2.0B, 2 x I2C, 2 x SPI, 2 x HSDI ports and audio interfaces in AC’97 or I2S versions. In addition, two FireWire IEEE1394a interfaces are possible. For data storage, connections for SD cards, CompactFlash and IDE are supported.
The 65 x 90 mm CPU module is attached to the carrier board using stable elastomeric connectors. To expand the I/O functionality, additional modules can be easily mounted on top of the CPU board due to the special connecting technology. Thanks to the low power dissipation of 2.5 W, no active cooling is required. As for all EXM components, the EXM32-AU1250 also conforms to the DIN EN 60068 (Environmental Conditions for Electrical and Electronic Equipment for Road Vehicles).
The CPU module is targeted for multimedia applications in portable video games, large screen information systems and all kinds of display systems besides the areas of industrial, automotive and medical usage.
