Tiny SOM includes wireless connectivity

As intelligent embedded devices become ubiquitous, designers are searching for small, low-power techniques to provide continuous, autonomous connectivity and effective remote management. To meet this growing demand, Logic PD recently introduced a small form factor, low-power System-On-Module (SOM) with built-in wireless capabilities. The new Logic PD DM3730 Torpedo + Wireless SOM is based on the Texas Instruments DaVinci DM3730 digital video processor and WiLink 7.0 connectivity products.

Less than 1 square inch in size, the Torpedo + Wireless SOM provides PC-like speeds up to 1 GHz, long battery life, and a WL1283 wireless chipset that includes 802.11a/b/g/n and Bluetooth with a roadmap to support GPS. Additionally, the DM3730 Torpedo + Wireless SOM is FCC certified, saving customers time and money by reducing design risk and shortening the final electromagnetic compatibility testing phase. Logic PD provides Android and Linux board support packages for use with the DM3730 Torpedo + Wireless SOM.
