Solution Description & Supported Functionality

The DM3730 Torpedo + Wireless SOM is an ultra-compact form factor built around Texas Instruments' DaVinci DM3730 processor and WiLink 7.0 wireless solution. Confining these two systems to a single board isolates the complex design, manufacturing, and wireless certifications from the rest of your product.
The DM3730 Torpedo + Wireless SOM occupies less than one square inch, but boasts PC-like speeds up to 1 GHz with long battery life. Partnered with such high performance is a startlingly low power consumption in suspend state.
The WL1283 wireless chipset provides access to all the wireless protocols; 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth, and GPS signals integrate natively with the SOM and Android and Linux BSPs.

  • *Smallest form factor SOM with wireless
    *Lowest power ARM Cortex-A8 SOM
    *Fully developed Android and Linux BSPs
    *In-depth documentation to help with development
    *Contract design and engineering support available
