OSD335x

A New Era of Integration and Flexibility

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

The Octavo OSD335x family of products are System-in-Package building blocks designed to allow easy and cost-effective implementation of products based on the powerful ARM® Cortex®-A8 Core. The OSD335x family enables very small form factors for size constrained applications. All devices in the family are assembled in an easy to use package.

Each OSD335x device incorporates a Texas Instruments AM335x Sitara™ Processor, TPS65217C Power Management IC, TL5209 LDO Voltage Regulator, a DDR3 SDRAM, and over 140 passive components. Since the OSD335x encapsulates the complicated high-speed design of the processor/DDR3 interface, the power management IC, and the complete complement of related capacitors, resistors, and inductors, the final system design is vastly simplified.

The OSD335x family is the perfect solution for any designer looking to quickly integrate the TI AM335 into their product but don’t want to deal with the complexity of the DDR interface or power sequencing.  The family also provides the smallest possible footprint, a simplified supply chain, and access to lower cost manufacturing.

Development Tools

Development Boards

beagleboneblackwireless_300pxThe 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 Dev 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

Symbols

To help make designing with the OSD335x devices easier a number of schematic symbols have been provided below.  They are for multiple schematic capture programs and multiple configurations.  Please choose the one that best suits your needs.

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.
