Product Description

The RM2 is Blue Chip Technology’s highly successful System on Module (SOM) in a tiny package, just 50 by 50mm. The RM2 processor is the Texas Instruments OMAP DM3730 Cortex A8 processor. In addition tot he processor the RM2 also features a TI DSP co- processor and 256MB of low power memory and 512MB of on onboard NAND Flash storage.

The graphics core is capable of driving 720p displays and has been by several customers as a digital signage engine.

A SOM is an off-the-shelf building block with all of the functionality of a high performance single board computer – CPU, chipset, RAM, Flash, Ethernet, CAN, etc but without the usual constraints. Instead you choose the board size/profile, the inputs /outputs and the connectors that suits your product best and then fit one of our SOMs to provide the level of performance required. Basing your new product on our SOM means the most expensive, complex and highest risk elements of the design are already proven whilst your host board design is a simple task which can be completed quickly and effectively. We can either support you when you design your own hostboard or if you wish design it for you.
