Solderable System on Module for Competitive Automotive & Automation Soln

Through a collaboration with Texas Instruments (TI), iWave Systems introduced iW-RainboW-G55M: TI AM62Ax Solderable System on Module (SoM). The SoM is powered by Texas Instruments AM62Ax Sitara processors and is built on the OSM v1.1 solderable SoM standard, offering an extensive set of interfaces in a compact form factor.

The iW-RainboW-G55M leverages the TI AM62Ax automotive-grade family of heterogeneous Arm-based processors with its quad Arm Cortex-A53 CPUs, a vision processing and deep learning accelerator, Arm Cortex-R5F CPUs for control and device management, display interface, extensive automotive peripheral and networking options, allowing for the development of products and solutions that require the implementation of man-machine synergy at the edge.

iWave adapted the OSM standard for the TI AM62Ax SoM to provide the user with a compact form factor, ruggedness (vibration resistance), and technology scalability based on the processor and application needs. The SoM enables customers to shorten their time to market with reduced risk and complexity.
