Gumstix upgrades Linux computer-on-module series

-May 18, 2013

In addition to doubling the available memory of its Overo Linux-based computer-on-module (COM) series, Gumstix has added WiFi and Bluetooth wireless capabilities to its DuoVero Zephyr COM.

The new Overo TidalSTORM provides 1 Gbyte of RAM, enabling better performance as a Linux graphical device. It employs a 1-GHz ARM Cortex-A8 DaVinci DM3730 digital media processor from Texas Instruments and an OpenGL PowerVR SGX graphics accelerator from Imagination Technologies for memory-intensive graphics applications.

The DuoVero Zephyr leverages Wi2Wi’s W2CBW0015  device to deliver IEEE 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity. Based on a Texas Instruments OMAP4430 processor, the DuoVero Zephyr offers embedded designers the same core technology that powers today’s smart phones, tablets, and other media-rich mobile devices. Two open-source expansion boards are available for the DuoVero Zephry: a DVI-D board and a breakout board for general engineering.

The Overo TidalSTORM COM costs $139; the DuoVero Zephyr COM costs $199.
