The SBC5651 is ideal for applications requiring small, low-power SBCs typical in medical, data collection, and test and measurement systems. With Freescale’s i.MX515 ARM Cortex-A8 multimedia processor at its core, the SBC5651 effortlessly interfaces to a CSI CMOS camera module for functions such as OCR, bar code scanning, edge detection, and real time video or video capture. Users can control speed and power use by adjusting processor speeds up to 800 MHz.
On-board I/O features include an LCD touchscreen for LVDS and TFT, LED backlight control, keypad interface, audio, watchdog timer, two PWM outputs, 1-wire interface, plus the features listed above. Analog expansion via USB, SPI, and I2C is available through StackableUSB™.
The Linux BSP for the SBC5651 is built through Yocto and installed on an SD card, making the board ready to program. Users can connect to their workstation via Ethernet to access their preferred Linux programming tools. Access to both OpenCV and GStreamer is available, as are sample programs for simple video applications.
