The power-sipping Sitara SoC helps the device operate at a maximum consumption of 1.5A, claims AndersDX. It also helps to keep the starting price of the DX1 (or DX1a) to under £100 (under $149). The entry-level DX1 can be used both for prototyping and for final production.
The DX1 ships with 256MB DDR3-1066 RAM and 512MB NAND flash, and offers a microSD slot for expansion. A gigabit Ethernet port is provided along with built-in WiFi and Bluetooth.
Four USB 2.0 host ports are available and users also get two serial ports, up to 24 lines of GPIO, audio I/O, a CANBus interface, and four ADC sockets. The system runs on 12V power, claims AndersDX.
The system comes pre-loaded with Debian Linux or Android “Jelly Bean” (4.2), and all required drivers are said to be fully integrated and debugged. A development kit version of cables and power supply is also available. Display customization is obtainable to volume buyers on a negotiated basis. If users will orders over 100 units then AndersDX can reduce the number of interfaces in order to reduce cost.
