Strategic Test's TRITON-290 SOM

Strategic Test has unveiled the smallest Intel/Marvel "Monahans P" system-on-module (SOM). Called the TRITON-290, it measures just 67.6-by-26-by-4.2mm and contains an 80MHz PXA290 processor coupled with 64Mbytes SDRAM and 128Mbytes Flash. The module operates over the extended temperature range of -25C to 85C. First shipments are slated to start in November, together with a complete development kit running Linux 2.6.17 and Microsoft Windows CE 5.0.

Using 1.8V, the ultralow-power module consumes only 2mW in sleep mode. As with the PXA270 and PXA255 TRITON modules, the TRITON-290 includes a programmable CPU power supply that together with Intel Wireless SpeedStep Power Manager technology ensures minimum power consumption while maintaining the highest levels of processor performance.

Other notable features include: RoHS Pb-free compliance, 16bit A/A/D multiplexed external memory interface so that additional memory can be placed on the carrier board, and a DS1339 Real Time Clock. The module can be driven by a single 3.3-5V power supply and includes a regulator onboard to supply 3.3V components located on the carrier board to further simplify carrier design.

The TRITON-290 uses a 200-pin SODIMM connector to bring out most of the PXA290's internal signals. Through a combination of software and firmware, the user is able to choose from one of seven different signal mappings to obtain the required processor features. These peripherals include: Mobile Scalable Link (a new Intel technology designed for high-speed serial data exchange between handsets and mobile devices), Quick Capture Interface, USB 1.1 Host, USB 2.0 Client, PWM, 4bit SD I/O, USIM card, keypad controller, UART, AC97/I2C, SSP, enhanced LCD controller for direct connection to a display, I?C and JTAG.
