Mouser offers Octavo Systems’ SiP to progress prototypes

Distributor Mouser Electronics is stocking the OSD3358 system in package (SiP) from Octavo Systems. The SiP is targeted at designers creating production-ready systems based on the Texas Instruments Sitara AM3358 processor with an ARM Cortex-A8 core. It is also aimed at helping developers who are using the BeagleBone Black Wireless SBC platform (or any design based on Sitara processors) move from prototype to production effortlessly, says the company.

The SiP simplifies the design of application-specific mainboards based on the Sitara AM3358 processor. It integrates the core of the BeagleBone Black, the AM3358 processor, the TI TPS65217C power management IC (PMIC), the TI TL5209 LDO voltage regulator, 512Mbytes of DDR3 SDRAM, and over 140 passive components into a single BGA package. The level of integration removes the complexities of power sequencing and DDR-to-processor interfacing that are typical in the design process, claims the company, while the single package simplifies the supply chain and facilitates lower-cost manufacturing.

The OSD3358 is compatible with the BeagleBone Black Wireless, a high-expansion, open source Linux computer created by the Foundation, designed for IoT applications. The company assures developers they can prototype software on the BeagleBone Black Wireless and then seamlessly transition it to custom boards that include the OSD3358 SiP without loss of performance.
