Toradex, a company that specializes in designing and producing ARM (News - Alert) and x86 embedded computer module hardware and software, has announced the availability of a new version V2.0 of the Colibri T20 Linux BSP for its NVIDIA Tegra 2-based ARM computer on module family.
The Colibri family of computer on modules comprises complete systems of robustly engineered and highly optimized hardware and software components, providing a solid foundation around which to realize one’s product ideas. They encapsulate the complexities of leading-edge hardware design, such as high-speed memory interfaces and fine pitch BGA components, allowing one to focus on application-specific hardware, realized through either an off-the-shelf or customer carrier board design.
The Colibri family of modules is based around the SODIMM form factor, making them suitable for a wide range of applications. Currently, the company deals with Colibri T30, Colibri T20, Colibri PXA320, Colibri PXA310, Colibri PXA270 and Colibri PXA300.
The new version V2.0 of the Colibri T20 contains U-Boot 2011.06 boot loader; Linux 3.1.10 kernel, based on NVIDIA's (News - Alert) Linux for Tegra (L4T) release 16-r2; and an OpenEmbedded oe-core 2012.10-based root file system, using LXDE desktop environment.
“The issue with the wallpaper design is fixed; no other issues were found during internal testing or reported by customers with version V2.0 Beta 2. Some additional tools and configurations have been added,” noted the company in a statement.
In a similar note, Toradex released datasheet for Apalis T30, the first product in the firm’s new Apalis module family. Complementing the existing Colibri module family, Apalis comes with a wide range of new and exciting features, ensuring that a user can develop the most advanced, robust products with minimum overhead and risk.
Apalis supports a huge variety of industry standard interfaces, while providing advanced multimedia and high-speed connectivity.
Toradex products are deployed within a diverse range of markets and industries, including automotive, medical devices, laboratory equipment, point of sales, gaming machines, navigation systems, musical instruments, machine control, virtual reality simulation, digital signage, traffic control systems, building automation, security systems, robotics, process control and auto pilots.
