Strategic Test releases TRITON-XXS
World's smallest PXA255 embedded CPU card
TRITON-XXS measures only 32mm x 59mm x 6.6mm and
runs Linux or Windows CE.NET
Boston--- Measuring just 1.25 x 2.3 x 0.26 inches, the TRITON-XXS from Strategic Test Corporation is a complete PXA255 computer that has been optimised for portable embedded designs where low-power consumption and extremely small size are critical. A complete Development Kit that allows the XXS to run out-of-the-box is available with Linux kernel 2.6 or Windows CE.NET pre-installed.
Designers of battery-operated devices will appreciate the unique implementation of "programmable core power", which means that the core operating voltage can be varied between 0.9 and 1.5V in order to save power.
The XXS is supplied with a 400 MHz PXA255 CPU, 64 Mbyte of low-power SDRAM, 32 Mbyte flash, a built-in LCD controller for direct connection to a display, a PCMCIA interface and two 100 pin surface mounted connectors that for the first time allows the full 32 bit memory address range to be accessed.
Other features include four high-speed serial interfaces (up to 4 Mbps), SPI, I2C and AC'97 audio.
There are four different TRITON PXA255 CPU modules in the range allowing the designer to choose the most cost-effective features for their application. Other modules offer a variety of PXA255 cpu speeds, Ethernet interfaces and the extended operating temperature range (-40 to +85 degreesC) as standard.
The TRITON-XXS is available immediately from Strategic Test and is priced at $286 in 1000 quantities. Configurations of the XXS with less SDRAM and flash, or an extended operating temperature range are available with minimum order quantities of 100 pieces.
All TRITON modules are supplied with RedBoot pre-installed. The Development Kits are supplied with Linux or Windows CE.NET pre-installed and includes full source code. Technical support is provided at no cost for the product lifetime. Software updates are provided free of charge by download from Strategic Test's customer website.
