Gumstix recently added Texas Instruments' (TI) Sitara AM3354 processor for custom single-board design capabilities to its Geppetto design platform. While Geppetto previously focused on allowing users to design expansion boards for use with Gumstix computers-on-module (COMs), the addition of the TI Sitara AM3354 processor to Geppetto's library offers greater flexibility for custom, single-board designs.

"The Sitara processor platform provides an affordable development environment that is effective for a rapid go-to-market strategy. Geppetto users are now able to design a complete, customised, single-board Linux solution with exactly the features they want," said Dr. W. Gordon Kruberg, Gumstix's CEO.

Geppetto-designed boards feature a TI Sitara AM3354 processor running at 720MHz with 256Mb of DDR2 RAM onboard. Users simply drag and drop the processor onto a board and then connecting the desired features to implement it. Fully assembled single-board computers are ordered at the touch of a button and arrive within 20 business days. Furthermore, Geppetto's support for the Yocto Project build system makes it easy for developers to create a complete, portable solution with minimal time and effort.

"TI's Sitara processor portfolio provides great flexibility and customisation for Geppetto-designed boards," said Alejandro Erives, TI's brand manager for Sitara processors. "Because of the addition of the AM3354 processor to the Geppetto library, users will be able to quickly and easily design systems based on the AM3354 module."
