ARM9 development board features optional Wi-Fi, seven-inch touchscreen


Linux on ARMRonetix announced a open-frame panel PC based on Atmel's 400MHz, ARM926-based AT91SAM9G45 processor and intended as a development platform. Now supporting Android as well as Linux, the SK-PM9G45 Starter Kit incorporates a CPU Module PM9G45 with 128MB of RAM and 256MB of flash, a seven-inch, 800 x 480 touchscreen, and a baseboard with serial, Ethernet, USB, and optional Wi-Fi connectivity, says the company.

In October 2010, Ronetix, which is known primarily for its PEEDI debug emulator, released a PM9G45 module incorporating Atmel's AT91SAM9G45 processor. The module was released with a Starter Kit, which combined a baseboard with a choice of 3.5, 5.7, and 8.0-inch LCD touchscreen options.

Now the Austrian firm has now launched a more advanced SK-PM9G45 Starter Kit, providing both a seven-inch 800 x 480 touchscreen, and additional I/O. Key enhancements include more serial, UART, and expansion connectors, plus audio ports and optional Wi-Fi.

The PM9G45 module, which is also available separately, remains the same, but has been upgraded to v1.3 firmware, according to a Ronetix spokesperson. It's built around the SAM9G45 processor, which is clocked at 400MHz, and provides 32KB each of data and instruction cache, as well as 64K of internal SRAM.
