    ARM9 CPU Core Module based on Atmel | SMART SAM9X35 Supporting Linux


    The MINI6935 is compact yet powerful embedded core module built on the Atmel|SMART SAM9X35, a 32-bit ARM 926EJ-S™ microcontroller. By utilising a compatible expansion board users can quickly add extra functionality allowing dramatically reduced design time.

    Despite the MINI6935's small size it manages to squeeze in 128MB of DDR2 SDRAM, 256MB of NAND Flash and 4MB of DataFlash, as well as abundant interfaces which may be further expanded with a compatible expansion board. The MINI6359 also features:

    • Support for the Linux2.6.39 operating system
    • Support for custom GUI's created via Linux QT
    • Support for multiple file systems such as ROM, CRAM, EXT2, EXT3, FAT, NFS, JFFS2, YAFFS2, UBIFS

    The SAM9X35 is a highly-integrated 400 MHz ARM926EJ-S™ embedded MPU, featuring an extensive peripheral set and high bandwidth architecture for industrial applications that require refined user interfaces and high-speed communication.

    Key Applications: Industrial Automation (Human Machine Interface, Industrial Communications, Instruments, PLC and I/O Modules), Metering (In-Home Display Units), PC Peripherals (Large I/O Devices)

    What software can I build into the device?
    A QT-based Linux is needed such as Yocto which provides resources already tailored to the Atmel AT91SAM device.
    Where can I find any information on the SoC?
    Atmel has resources for the processor on its website which may be acessed for this
    What debugging tools are available?
    The JTAG tool for this one is the AT91SAM-ICE which is part number 1095464 or 68T5115
    How do I configure the NAND flash?
    There is information from Atmel here which outlines how to set up the boot system of the device if you need to compile your own.
    If you buy the development kit EDM6070AR-01 2364788 / 17X8439 does it come with a module?
    The development kit comes with a module included
