Fingertip5: The Next Generation Marvell PXA Mobile Device Platforms

PDF IconFingertip5 product brochure (1.40MB)

At the size of a credit card, the Fingertip line of products are the highest performance, lowest power consuming, complete solutions for handheld device development available today.Designed as a drop-in upgrade, the Fingertip5 maintains mechanical and electrical backwards compatibility with the Fingertip4, while preserving the majority of peripheral I/O. Marvell XScale PXA320 Embedded System Fingertip5, created for OEM developers of portable and wireless devices in need of full-featured solutions and advanced power management, is based on Marvell’s PXA320 processor.The Fingertip5’s increased performance delivers over 800 MHz of processing power while maintaining low battery consumption, under one watt. The Fingertip5 also adds DDR memory, NAND Flash and higher resolution graphics. Like the Fingertip4, DC input from 4-15V, primary LiIon battery charging and capacity management, and backup battery/supercap input, are all integrated on the Fingertip5.

InHand’s BatterySmart® dynamic power management software technology is tightly integrated with the Fingertip5 hardware, allowing developers to control both low- and high-level issues related to performance and power consumption. Fingertip5 withBatterySmart system software allows developers to create extremely small, robust, low-power handheld and wireless devices, including PDAs, SmartPhones, smart sensors, power over Ethernet devices, tablets, and wearable computers.

The Fingertip5 Development Platform starter kit provides the entry point for Fingertip5-based designs and comes with the hardware, software, and technical support that developers need to get their designs off the ground. The Development Platform includes support for multiple displays, GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi, Ethernet, and a variety of other peripherals. InHand’s product support tools provide all the components needed to take a product from concept to production including Development Platforms, 3D models and drawings, SDKs, BSPs, prototype packaging, and expert design consulting services.

InHand offers an off-the-shelf daughter card for the Fingertip5, called Fingerboard, for easy expandability. Click here for more on Fingerboard.
