MUNICH, Germany, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PHYTEC announces the phyCORE-OMAP5430 System on Module (SOM), a feature-packed SOM based on the OMAP5430 processor from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI). In 2011 PHYTEC released the first SOM to the market supporting TI's OMAP4 platform. Now customers have a perfect migration path with pin compatibility to the OMAP 5 platform.
The OMAP5430 processor is an advanced architecture which includes a dual-core ARM® Cortex-A15 MPCore foundation, complemented by multiple graphics accelerators and dual Cortex-M4 cores for low-power offload and real-time responsiveness. Multi-core POWERVR™ SGX544-MPx graphics accelerators drive 3D gaming and 3D user interfaces on the processor, while other features include: a dedicated 2D graphics engine, hardware accelerators for full HD 1080p60fps and 1080p30fps 3D, support of simultaneous cameras and displays, and high performance peripheral interfaces.
PHYTEC production-ready SOM technology, combined with operating system board support packages, provides a critical foundation so embedded designers do not have to develop their application from the ground up. Designing in a SOM reduces the complexity and scope of product developments, allowing OEMs to significantly reduce cost, time-to-market and design risk. The phyCORE-OMAP5430 provides a perfect balance of power efficiency and high performance and is well suited for deployment in markets with high-end, feature-intensive products leveraging wireless embedded applications for industrial, medical and video or imaging solutions.
Highlights for the phyCORE-OMAP5430 SOM include:
- OMAP5430 processor
- up to 4 GB LPDDR2 RAM
- up to 64 GB eMMC Flash
- Memory expansion: 2x SDIO/MMC
- Networking: 10/100 Mbit/s Ethernet
- Other I/O: 1x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0, 4x UARTS (one RS-232), 3x I2C, 1x 1-Wire, 1x MCBSP, 2x MCSPI
- Display: 1x Display Serial Interface (DSI), 1x Display Parallel Interface, 1x HDMI
- Power : 3.3V supply, 1.8V I/O
- Operating temperature: -40°C to +85°C
- Dimensions: 55 x 45 mm
- Planned Operating System Support: Linux, Windows, and Android
The phyCORE-OMAP5430 will be available in a PHYTEC Rapid Development Kit (RDK). The kit includes the SOM, carrier board, board support package (BSP), demo images and all contents required for immediate start-up. The carrier board serves as a starting point for design of target hardware. The RDK provides an immediate platform on which to develop application code that can be seamlessly integrated along with the SOM into prototype, pre-production, and production systems. OEMs with aggressive timelines or limited resources can employ PHYTEC's full range of design services that include: embedded hardware design; Linux, Windows Embedded and Android adaptation; and complete turnkey designs.
Michael Mitezki, Chief Executive Officer of PHYTEC, said "PHYTEC has evolved a clear and rich roadmap with our partners. Having early access to cutting edge silicon before the general market, we are able to support many OEMs who cannot access this technology directly. The phyCORE-OMAP5430 is an exciting addition to PHYTEC's product line of System on Modules based on TI's applications processors.
"With a history of working with previous-generation OMAP processors, the PHYTEC team has an astute ability to leverage the best of the OMAP processor architecture for embedded applications," said Michael Schoonover, industrial business development manager, OMAP platform business unit, TI. "The new OMAP 5 processor-based phyCORE-OMAP5430 SoM provides a feature-packed option for embedded developers, backed by PHYTEC's commitment to maximize investments and fuel solid design execution."
phyCORE-OMAP5430 Rapid Development Kits will be available to PHYTEC Alpha customers in Q1/2013. Please contact PHYTEC for more information at [email protected]from North America, or [email protected] for all other locations.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
