Forlinx released OK335xS-II single board computer which is a Low Cost and Industrial Board base on TI Sitara AM335x Processor

Most tiny, stable and low cost industrial single board computer

Forlinx Embedded, a company based in Baoding, Hebei, China specializing in embedded systems design and manufacturing, has recently launched OK335xS-II single board computer powered by Texas Instruments AM335x SoC which they claim to be “the cheapest industrial Cortex-A8 board in history” as it sells for as low as 298 RMB or about $48.

Forlinx_OK335xS-IIOK335xS-II board is comprised of a baseboard and a CPU module soldered to the carrier board with the following specifications:

SoC – Texas Instruments AM335X ARM Cortex-A8 processor @ 800MHz with PowerVR SGX530 GPU

System Memory – 128M DDR3 + micro SD slot

Storage – 256MB SLC NAND Flash

Display I/F – LCD interface with support for LCD to LVDS and LCD to VGA, and resistive touchscreen interface

Connectivity – 1x 100M Ethernet

USB – 1x USB 2.0 host, 1x mini USB 2.0 device

Serial – 5x serial port (1x debug interface, 4x TTL port)

Expansions headers – 5 headers with access to

7x AD (2x for user, 1x for slide rheostat, 4x for resistive touch)

1x I2C, 1x SPI

2x CAN

3x PWM(1x backlight, 1x buzzer, 1x user expansion)

8x GPIOs

Misc – 2x LEDs, 3x user keys, boot and reset key, boot switch, battery for external RTC chip

Power Supply – 5V

Dimensions – 52 x 42mm (CPU module); 104.2 x 81 mm (Baseboard)

Operating Temperature Range – -40℃ to +85 ℃

Relative Humidity – 10%~90%

The company can provide 4.3”, 5”, 7”, 8”, and 10.4” LCD display to work with the board, Wi-Fi can be added via SDIO or USB, and the boot switch is used to select between NAND or SD card boot.

Both Linux 3.2 (Arago?) and Win CE6.0 are supported, and the board apparently sells pre-loaded with Linux 3.2. There’s supposed to be “abundant documentation” with Linux and WinCE software manual, a Qt development guide, and various sample programs. None of the documentation and source code are available online, so that’s something you’d get when you purchase the board.
