Direct Insight said that it has created the most powerful ARM-based system on module in the world. The production-ready SwiftModule-DM, which combines a Texas Instruments (TI) Da Vinci DM3730 with a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 core and an optional 720p HD DSP imaging and video accelerator, is part of a range of devices that succeed the OMAP3530 series devices.

A PowerVR SGX graphics accelerator with Open GL ES 2.0 and OpenVG support is included in the DM3730, which also has a pin-compatible lower-cost version without the graphics accelerator or video DSPthe AM3703. Both versions have 800MHz and 1GHz processor clock versions.

 ARM-based SwiftModule-DM

The 200-pin module is tiny at just 35mm x 68mm and supports Ethernet, 2x SD Card, 3x UARTs, image sensor, audio, USB Host and OTG, touch screen, keypad, SPI and I2C using the customer's own baseboard. The 9 x 9cm SwiftLite-DM, used for development and prototyping purposes, adds HDMI and LVDS outputs. SwiftModule-DM is optimized for Linux and Windows CE 6.0.
