Gumstix announced the addition of the Texas Instruments (TI) Sitara AM3354 processor for custom single-board design capabilities to its Geppetto design platform. While Geppetto previously focused on allowing users to design expansion boards for use with Gumstix computers-on-module (COMs), the addition of the TI Sitara AM3354 processor to Geppetto’s library offers greater flexibility for custom, single-board designs.
Geppetto-designed boards feature a TI Sitara AM3354 processor running at 720 MHz with 256 MB of DDR2 RAM onboard. Users simply drag and drop the processor onto a board and then connect the desired features to implement it. Fully assembled single-board computers are ordered at the touch of a button and arrive within 20 business days.
“We introduced the AM3354 module to offer even greater value to our customers,” said W. Gordon Kruberg, president and CEO of Gumstix. “The Sitara processor platform provides an affordable development environment that is effective for a rapid go-to-market strategy. Geppetto users are now able to design a complete, customized, single-board Linux solution with exactly the features they want.”
