Syracuse, NY and Pittsburgh, PA – August 23, 2012 – Critical Link (www.criticallink.com) and Timesys Corporation (www.timesys.com), today announced they are partnering to provide developers using the Critical Link MityARM-3359 System-on-Module (SoM) with an easy-to-use, affordable Linux software development framework that significantly speeds up time-to-market.
Based on the Sitara™ AM3359 ARM® Cortex-A8 processor from Texas Instruments (TI), the MityARM-3359 is a highly configurable, small form factor SoM that offers support for many peripherals including integrated 3D-graphics. The MityARM platform is used in a broad range of industrial, instrumentation, medical, commercial, transportation, and agricultural applications, integrated into benchtop, handheld, kiosk or mobile devices.
