Advantech's ROM-1210 Computer-on-Module (COM) integrates an ARM Cortex-A8 1GHz Freescale i.MX53 series and an ultra-low power SoC and intensive I/O solution chips. The ROM-1210 uses onboard 512MB DDR3, 2GB Flash supporting OpenGL ES 2.0, OpenVG 1.1 hardware 2D/3D accelerators; ROM-1210 also supports a full HD 1080p video decoding and HD 720p video encoding hardware engine.
Advantech ROM-1210 is designed for low power consumption around 0.8 Watt (with standard, full-run at 1.8 Watts). These heatsink-free designs and full HD functions are suitable for various low-power applications in HMI/Signage, industrial automation, cloud computing and portable applications.
The ROM-1210 is an Android 2.3-, and Embedded Linux2.6-, Windows Embedded Compact 7 solution-ready platform. It is designed to support RTX (RISC Technology eXtended) COM architecture, which has been defined by Advantech product experience in recent years. RTX integrates CPU, RAM, Flash, RTC, and Watchdog timer computing kernel within its 68x68mm footprint.
SATA, PCI Express, Ethernet, USB, UART, LCD, HDMI, Audio, SD, I2C, etc. are included too–these rich interfaces all are integrated into the RTX form factor. Users need only design the power circuit, and necessary I/O connectors on their carrier boards to complete their own RISC platforms, saving product development schedule, human resources, and costs.
