    Overview

     

    The SBC8140SBC8140 is a Single Board Computer designed by Embest using the Mini8510Mini8510 processor card as the CPU core board. The board is specially targeting those applications requiring high definition video or large-scale data processing such as 2D/3D game console products, portable devices, high-end industrial equipment, medical devices, and intelligent home systems.

     

    TheMini8510Mini8510 core board has the DM3730CUSADM3730CUSA microcontroller, 256MByte DDR SDRAM, 512MByte NAND Flash, RTC, LEDs, and a Camera interface as well as a 10-pin JTAG interface on board. It is connected with the SBC8140SBC8140 expansion board through two 1.27mm space 2*45-pin dip connectors. The SBC8140 expansion board has exposed many of other features of the DM3730CUSADM3730CUSA through headers and connectors including serial ports, USB Host, OTG, Ethernet, Audio In/Out, Keyboard, LCD/Touch Screen interface, VGA, and SD card.

     

    Embest offers a complete software development package to customers. The board supports both Linux 2.6.21 and WindowsCE 6.0 operating systems and is provided with complete basic drivers which enable a quick method to evaluate the TI DM3730CUSADM3730CUSA processor and customize application software.
