Thunderpack is a low cost embedded platform with a punch. It's based of Technexion TAO3530W single board computer that delivers a fusion of TI OMAP3530 SOC and 802.11b/g WIFI module.
With all the brawn its OMAP3530 SOC brings to bear, Thunderpack can be used for pretty much any embedded project that you can think of - robotics, multimedia, home automation, etc.
It will whip through most challenging number crunching operations using its highly optimized Cortex-A8, DSP, Video Hardware Accelerator and PowerVR SGX 530 modules.
When it comes to Thunderpack's raw computing power and features, possibilities with embedded projects are virtually endless. OMAP3530 SOC offers the richest feature set to your disposal in OMAP35xx family.
With Thunderpack, you get a complete computing platform that has its own 4.3 inch touch-screen LCD panel, on-board WiFi, RJ-45, DVI-D through HDMI and a large number of other peripheral interfaces available through extension connector.
50 pin extension connector (2.00mm pitch, through hole) breaks out I2C, SPI, Camera, UART, GPIO and other signals. This means that literally any peripheral chip on the market can be connected to Thunderpack.
Starting an embedded project has never been so easy!
