Ka-Ro TX28


Processor features


The i.MX287 is the most feature rich device in the i.MX28 family. Optimized for performance and power consumption, the i.MX287 boasts of a premium feature set that includes: dual CAN, dual Ethernet, and LCD touch screen. The i.MX287 is an ideal fit for portable devices that require rich user interfaces with high color displays for presented information and user interaction. Simply said the i.MX287 has all the advantages of ARM plus the enablement you need to design differentiated industrial and consumer products in less time.

For more information regarding i.MX28 processors, see the Freescale product page:

Ka-Ro CoM scalability


Often, devices are required in different performance and price classes. This is where Ka-Ro’s TX standard comes into its own. With one single hardware design embedded engineers can produce a range of pin- and software-compatible products. Ka-Ro introduced the TX CoM standard over six years ago. Until today, the Ka-Ro Starter Kit V has served as the unchanged development environment for all Ka-Ro TX modules underlining Ka-Ro’s long-term product and family strategy. All the TX modules can be used on the Starter Kit V which enables great scalability and flexibility.

Reduce to the max – the Ka-Ro product philosophy


The philosophy behind Ka-Ro’s TX CoM family is to reduce a CoM down to the absolute minimum of components. In doing so, application designers and engineers using Ka-Ro CoMs can achieve maximum flexibility. Ka-Ro TX CoM modules solely feature the processor plus memory and the power supply. Any additional functions can be added to the base board.

Longevity

This focus on CoMs with a minimum number of components is on the one hand the key to very competitive pricing, on the other hand it enables Ka-Ro to ensure long-term availability. While processor manufacturers like Freescale offer a long-term availability of 10 to 15 years, this must also apply to any further components integrated onto a module or these must be available via second sourcing and without any necessary software alterations. If these components are integrated on a module, as is the case with many other manufacturers, this long-term availability is endangered, or – from right from the start – not possible to guarantee.
