InHand Siren: Compact Embedded System Based on Texas Instruments Sitara AM3703 ARM SBC
Based on Texas Instrument’s Sitara™ AM3703 processor, InHand’s Siren™ is the sister board of the Fury, offering top-of-the-line performance to OEM developers of wireless and handheld devices. Siren provides a solid SBC with industry standard peripherals including: Micro USB, RS-232 Serial Port, 3 USB 2.0 Host, Lithium ion battery charger, 256MB DDR, 512MB NAND Flash, RTC, Watchdog, Universal Display Port, and microSD Slot/SDIO. Smaller than a credit card, Siren offers the option for GPS, Bluetooth and WiFi. Building upon InHand’s expertise in small-size, low-power designs, Siren maintains InHand’s classic design characteristics while increasing performance speed and functionality and reducing size, cost and time-to-market. Siren also offers an easy expansion option with daughter card connectors for use with InHand’s off-the-shelf daughter card, Muse, or custom developed application specific daughter card.
The Siren development platform provides an quick and easy starting point for Siren-based designs and comes will all the hardware, software and technical support require to get designs moving.
InHand offers an off-the-shelf expansion board, Muse, for multimedia upgrades and easy expandability. Click here for more on Muse.
