Anchor5 SoM

ARM Cortex A9 Quad Core SoM

The Anchor5 is a highly-integrated System-on-Module that utilizes an Quad-core ARM Cortex-A9
processor, 1GB DRAM,4GB eMMC, a hardware Secure Element , and a wired/wireless
communication options such as 802.11a/b/g/n/ac,Bluetooth 4.1(Classic+BLE) and Ethernet as well,
and all of which are put into an compact footprint. The various standard digital control interfaces
support external sensors and higher performance peripherals to expand the module’s capabilities.
With the combination of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, the Anchor5 is the perfect choice for home automation
and home hub devices,while also supporting a rich UI/UX capability for camera and display
requirements. The inclusion of hardware-based Secure Element provides end-to-end security.

Anchor5 Single board computer

Anchor5 is a small single board computer with Anchor 5 System-on-Module. This is popularly used for
IoT based applications and Industrial equipments by connecting peripherals like sensors, networking
and video display and input device.
You can use several OSs like Tizen 5.0, Linux Ubuntu, etc.
This board provides SPI, I2C, I2S and UART and GPIO as Standard I/O, USB, Ethernet, WLAN/BT for
connectivity, Audio/Video In/Out, LED for indicator and User Function, Buttons for Power/Reset/Genreal
Purpose, etc.
This can access the on-chip hardware i.e. GPIOs for developing an application. By accessing GPIO,
you can connect devices like LED, motors, sensors, etc and can control them too.
This board is only compatible with Anchor 5 SoM module that is ARM based Quad core Processor
along with on-chip GPU (Graphics Processing Unit).
