    EDM6070 Embedded Display Module based on the Atmel | SMART SAM9X35 Microprocessor

    Overview

    The EDM6070AR-01 is an ARM based Single Board Computer (SBC), designed & developed by element14. It comprises of a 7” LCD display and touch screen assembly, integrated with multi-functional embedded hardware based on Atmel | SMART AT91SAM9X35 industrial processor. The EDM6070AR-01 is a fully integrated Embedded Display Module solution for variety of embedded control HMI applications, ready to drop into your product with negligible integration effort, OR to just wrap an enclosure around, add a software application and become your finished product. EDM6070 is designed to fulfil the different requirements of various HMI applications including industrial control terminals, intelligent instruments, data acquisition and analysis, medical products, and network terminals.

    EDM6070AR-01 consists of three parts: a MINI6935 CPU core module, an expansion board, and a 7-inch TFT LCD (800×480) with resistive touchscreen:

    MINI6935 CPU module is an ARM embedded board, integrated with the Atmel | SMART ARM926EJ-S-based processor SAM9X35, operating at 400MHz frequency. The board has 128MB DDR2 SDRAM, 256MB NAND Flash, 4MB DataFlash, 4KB two-wire EEPROM. The Base Board expands the rich set of connectivity and user interface peripherals of Atmel | SMART SAM9X35 including Ethernet and CAN interface. The board also has TFT touch screen LCD interface, USB hosts/device, Buzzer, RS232, RS485, CAN, SPI, I2C, SD Card, Audio, GPIOs and SD card interface to allow large storage capabilities. LCD Touchscreen Display is a 4-wire resistive touchscreen TFT LCD display with a display resolution of up to 800x480 with 24-bit colour depth.

    The EDM6070AR-01 includes Linux BSP and supports the Linux QT GUI (Graphical User Interface) and multiple file systems like, FAT, NTFS etc. It is also supplied with a Smart Home demo application (include smart-led controller, weather controller, video) and a number of example applications to give you a quick and easy start.

    Key Applications: Medical Product, Industrial Control Terminal, Intelligent Instrument, Family/Building Automation, Network Terminal, Data Acquisition and Analysis
