OSD335x

A New Era of Integration and Flexibility

 Faster and Smaller Designs, Simplified Supply Chain, Lower Cost Manufacturing

The Octavo Systems OSD335x System-in-Package (SiP) device is the first device in the OSD335x Family.  It integrates the Texas Instruments Sitara ARM® Cortex®-A8 AM335x Processor, DDR3 memory, TPS65217C PMIC, TL5209 LDO, and all needed passive components into a single 27mm X 27mm BGA package.

Integrating the DDR3, power system, and passive devices into the single package removes the complexities of DDR3 to processor interfacing and power sequencing.  This allows for a vastly simplified final system design.

The 400 Ball BGA package is 40% smaller than the equivalent discrete design making it a great solution for space constrained applications.  The package also utilizes a 1.27mm (50 mil) ball pitch making it extremely easy to assemble.  The ball pitch also allows for the use of more relaxed Printed Circuit Board (PCB) design rules, saving PCB cost.

The OSD335x is the quickest and easiest way to implement a system around the TI AM335x while also providing space savings, simplified supply chains, lower cost manufacturing, and greater reliability.

Development Tools

Development Boards

BeagleBone Black Wireless Featuring the OSD335xThe BeagleBone™ Black Wireless is one of the quickest ways to get up and running with the OSD3358.  This low cost board from BeagleBoard.org features the OSD3358-512M-BAS as well as 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth v4.1.  It is also compatible with all BeagleBone™ Black expansion capes.  The BeagleBone™ Black Wireless is completely open-source and is supported by the large and active BeagleBoard.org® community.

 

 

GHI BeagleBoard OSD3358 Development BoardGHI Electronics, our lead design partner, has created a development board for getting started with the OSD335x Family.  It includes the OSD3358-512M-BAS devices as well as numerous peripherals, interfaces, and a capacitive touch screen making it an ideal starting point for any project. The system can be powered through USB or by connecting a power pack.

This board is BeagleBone Compatible, meaning it will run the BeagleBone linux distributions found on BeagleBoard.org

ghi-th-board_300pxThe OSD3358 TH Module from GHI Electronics makes it extremely easy to start using the OSD335x in your own system.  It has everything you need to quickly boot Linux and gives you easy access to all of the IO that you would need for your own design.  This is a minimalist board and perfect if you are looking to prototype with the OSD335x in your system.

This board is BeagleBone Compatible, meaning it will run the BeagleBone linux distributions found on BeagleBoard.org

Reference Designs

OSD3358 SBC Reference Design
OSD3358 SBC Reference Design

In order to help get you started using the OSD335x we, in partnership with BeagleBoard.org, have created a reference design around the OSD3358-512M-BAS.  The reference design is a Single Board Computer that is compatible with BeagleBone Black ecosystem.  This reference design will run the BeagleBone Linux distributions and is also compatible with all capes.  If created exactly it will perform like a BeagleBone Black.  This is a reference design only.  The boards are not available to purchase.

Note:  This is reference design replaced the original OSD3358 SBC Reference Design that was done in Orcad.  This design represents the current best practices for designing with the OSD335x.  If you are interested in the legacy design it can be found here.
