    • SBC8100 Plus Single Board Computer Based on TI DM3730 ARM Cortex-A8 WITH 4.3 inch LCD


    The SBC8100 PLUS WITH 4.3''LCD is a single board computer based on Texas Instruments DM3730 DaVinci digital media processor with 4.3inch LCD. This high performance controller board is designed based on the Mini8510 processor card which integrates an DM3730 processor. It is based on DM3730 processor and designed with a tiny processor card Mini8510 mounted directly onto the same expansion board of the SBC8100.

    The SBC8100 Plus integrates Mini8510 as the CPU board which compatible with Mini8100 but using TI's DM3730 as its CPU core board. This is convenient for customers who used SBC8100 or Mini8100 before to upgrade to SBC8100 Plus or Mini8510 so as to migrate from the OMAP3530 to DM3730 for their embedded designs.

    The Texas Instruments’ DM3730 DaVinci™ digital media processor is powered by up to 1-GHz (also supports 300, 600, and 800-MHz operation) ARM Cortex-A8 and 800-MHz (also supports 250, 520 and 660-MHz operation) C64x DSP core, and has integrated 3D graphics processor, imaging and video accelerator (IVA), USB 2.0, MMC/SD memory card, UART and many more.

    DaVinci DM3730 video processor is pin-to-pin compatible with Sitara AM37x devices and software compatible with the OMAP35x processors. The C64x DSP and hardware video accelerator enable audio and HD 720p video decoding and encoding independent of the ARM processor. The programmable DSP engine allows multiple signal processing tasks such as image processing and analysis, digital filtering, and math functions. DaVinci DM3730 video processor is suitable for 720p HD (High Definition) video applications which require large amount of data processing.

    Embest also offers a complete software development package to customers. The board supports both the Linux 2.6 and WindowsCE 6.0 operating systems and is provided with complete basic drivers which enable a quick method of evaluating the TI DM3730 processor and customizing the application software. It would be an ideal development platform for multimedia and communication applications.
