MIPS – YELLOW1210

Not recommended for new design.

YELLOW1210 is a high performance credit card size single board computer optimized for use in embedded projects. YELLOW1210 combines the power of the RMI® Au1210™ processor with a carefully selected set of peripherals optimized for high functionality, low power and small form factor. Season Design Technology has engineered the high risk elements of the system. You receive a fully tested module.

MIPS – YELLOW1210

Overview

The YELLOW1210 is a RoHS compliant board. Low power consumption in normal operation and during sleep modes make the YELLOW1210 ideal for battery operated systems. The RMI Alchemy™ Au1210™ navigation processor is optimized for Portable Navigation Devices (PNDs) and dedicated media applications.

The YELLOW1210 operates as a standalone module requiring only a single 5V input. Alternatively customers can add the REDCONN - a services board for the YELLOW1210 - or use YELLOW1210 as a “super component” in their systems.

The RMI Alchemy Au1210 processor incorporates an integrated Media Acceleration Engine (MAE) optimized for video to eliminate the need for DSPs and specialized coding. This means less overall power consumption and a simplified design.

A preconfigured Windows CE operating system is available for the YELLOW1210.

Development is speeded by the availability of the LaunchPad Application Development Kit for YELLOW1210.

The Au1210 processor is designed for applications including: Portable Media Players (PMPs), automotive infotainment, navigation, and Digital Media Adapters (DMAs), industrial controllers and data loggers. The Alchemy Au1210 processor incorporates an integrated Media Acceleration Engine (MAE) optimized for video to eliminate the need for DSPs and specialized coding. This means less overall power consumption and a simplified design.

The credit card size board provides on-board memory along with a micro SD socket for further memory expansion. Communications is provided two RS232 serial ports, a 10/100Base-T Ethernet port and two USB host ports. A 16bit parallel display interface supporting a wide range of TFT LCDs at resolutions up to 1024 x 768. Audio is provided by an AC97 codec providing mono microphone input, stereo line input, stereo line output, mono speaker output and four-wire resistive touch screen controller.

Expansion is provided by I2C and 17 general purpose I/O signals for user I/O. The YELLOW1210 consumes very little power from a single 5V power supply even when operating at full speed. The operating system may switch off unused circuitry for extremely low power consumption in power managed states.
