DaVinci DM8168 Qseven SOM


2 weeks

iWave's DM8168 SOM is based on TI's DaVinci DM816x DSP+ARM Cortex-A8 Microprocessor for faster and more robust applications. With extreme system and peripheral integration, the DSP+ARM MPUs provide multiple high-performance interfaces, such as PCIe Gen2, HDMI 1.3, SATA2.0, Gigabit Ethernet and DDR3 interfaces.

The module is compatible to Qseven R1.20 ARM specification and features up to 1.2 GHz CPU, on-board DDR3 RAM, Nand Flash, Micro SD slot and JTAG headers.
