Postage stamp-sized ARM9 CPU module with versatile connectivity

(PresseBox) (Berlin, ) The CPU module "Stamp9261" is the latest development from the Berlin manufacturer taskit. This CPU module brings together an Atmel AT91SAM9261 microcontroller, 32/64 MB SDRAM and 16/64 MB Flash memory on a card measuring just 53 x 38 mm. Since all components are mounted on one side, the module boasts a thickness of just 4 mm. The compact form enables integration of Stamp into applications with minimal space availability. Stamp is an excellent basis for developing mobile devices or embedded computing solutions.

The 200 processor pins are another advantage of Stamp9261. They give you access to a wide choice of interfaces and peripheral devices. The signals are transfered over two 100-pin Hirose FX-8 connectors. This filigree connector technology has been used in industrial conditions for a long time and has proved to withstand vibrations and jolts without any problems.

Stamp supports the following interfaces: a 32-bit parallel bus, JTAG, 2x USB host, 1x USB device, 4x USART, SPI, TWI (I²C compatible) and 80 digital I/O ports. Also, an SD/MMC-card slot and/or Smart-Card slot can be used for recording and storing data. Stamp is Ethernet capable when operated with the taskit StampAdaptor.

An LCD controller is integrated into the AT91SAM9261, offering resolutions of up to 2048x2048 pixels at 24-bit color depth. TFT and LCD displays can be operated either monochrome or with up 16 million colors.

The 200+ MHz ARM926EJ-S processor core delivers great performance. ARM-based processors are particularly well-suited for mobile applications because of their low power consumption. Stamp's standby and power-down modes save even more energy in long-term operation. You can program these power management functions to maximize power performance for your particular application.

The Linux open-source operating system and U-Boot boot loader are preinstalled on Stamp. Linux is a very well-documented operating system. Standard GNU tools (included) are used to program Stamp. These include, among others, the GNU Compiler Collection, the text editor GNU Emacs and the GNU C-library.

Visit us in Nuremburg from February 26-28, 2008 at Embedded World. In Hall 12, Stand 402, you can speak with the taskit development team and we will be happy to explain the functionality and opportunities that Stamp9261 provides.
