The wait is finally over! After two years of research and development, GHI Electronics is excited to introduce the Universal Compute Module (UCM) Standard. This includes two product families equipped with full development options.
The new standard maps a standard set of peripherals to pins on a SO DIMM 200-format module. This adds a layer of abstraction to the hardware designs. You can now start designing a system without knowing what processor or memory you may ultimately need. The system will simply be a power supply and any required analog circuitry. All the complex digital circuitry will be hosted on the UCM.
The standard ships today with two product families: the UC5550 and UC2550 which are based on a Cortex-M7 and Cortex-M4 core respectively. With optional QSPI flash and Wi-Fi, these module families and their options will cover nearly every need. Additionally, modules can be further customized to fit your needs. Contact us to get started.
We did not just stop there! There are also development options to help in evaluating and developing with any UCM. With this universal standard, any UCM module will work on any of the development options.
As you would expect from GHI Electronics, we are where hardware meets software. To that end, we are bringing support for TinyCLR OS to these new UCMs. TinyCLR OS brings .NET to IoT and embedded devices. While this commercially-supported software is available and licensed for our products, you are free to run your own software.
