TIME-TO-MARKET: You can find the latest evaluation boards and samples in our shop. So that you do not lose any valuable time.
All SOM modules are based on SoC (System on Chip) devices, which provide a MIPS and ARM architecture as well. The most important SoC interfaces (e.g. Ethernet, USB, SPI, UART, GPIOs, etc.) are traced to the module interface without any diversions. In order to meet different application requirements the modules are offered with higher memory footprint at higher processing power. For example, Jalapeno offers 256 MB DDR3 RAM and 128 MB NAND Flash with Quad Cortex-A7 CPUs. All SOM modules support Wi-Fi in the single band and/or dual band.
While the entire application can be integrated on a SOM, the radio modules offer an elegant and simple way of extending existing Linux or Windows system via SDIO, PCIe or USB interface with Wi-Fi connectivity. In this case, the application and the TCP/IP stack are running on an external host processor, while the radio module covers the two lower layers of the OSI model, which leads simply to the name “radio”. Beside 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, the modules also support BT5.x and BLE.
All the modules (SOM + Radios) have in common that they are RED, FCC, and IC certified (except for Centipede).
Since CODICO is also partner of Qualcomm, we can provide technical support not only on the module level, but also on the chip level. This guarantees our customers simple and rapid communication throughout your entire evaluation and development phase. Our FAEs (Field Application Engineers) are very experienced in working with Linux/OpenWRT and can also support you in all Wi-Fi related issues. Regardless of how complex your design is, involving the engineering team from Qualcomm and 8DEVICES we can solve any problem.
