Direct Insight TRITON-TX51 squeezes Cortex A8 computer onto a SODIMM module

Direct Insight logoJust how much can you squeeze onto a SODIMM-sized module? If you’re Direct Insight, you can fit an entire 800MHz ARM Cortex A8 based computer onto there: the TRITON-TX51 uses Freescale’s i.MX515 system-on-chip (SoC) as well as 128MB each of RAM and NAND flash memory, two SDIO/SD Card ports, an LCD touchscreen controller capable of driving displays at up to 1,280 x 768 resolution, plus PAL/NTSC out.

It doesn’t end there, either. There’s also a 10/100 ethernet controller, USB 2.0 OTG and Host, and interfaces including I2C, SPI, I2S, 1-Wire and PWM. The i.MX515 has a PowerVR graphics engine supporting OpenGL ES 2.0 together with hardware 720p decoding for MPEG-4/H264, as well as a CMOS camera driver.

TRITON-TX51

Direct Insight reckon the TRITON-TX51 will carve a niche for itself in video and DSP processing, as well as security, medical and industrial projects. As you might expect, however, a 2.7 x 1.0 inch computer doesn’t come cheap; the TRITON-TX51 is expected to be priced at around €150 ($227) when it arrives in January 2010.
