MitySOM-A10S System on ModuleDual-Core ARM Cortex A9, up to 480KLE FPGA, DDR4 SOM for industrial embedded applications


The MitySOM-A10S is an Intel/Altera Arria 10 SoC SOM (system on module) for a wide range of industrial embedded applications.  In addition to the A10 processor, the module includes on-board power supplies, two DDR4 RAM memory subsystems, micro SD card, a USB 2.0 on the go (OTG) port, and a temperature sensor.  The MitySOM-A10S SOM provides a complete and flexible CPU infrastructure for highly integrated embedded systems.

The MitySOM-A10S is available with a 270KLE Arria 10 SX which provides dual-core Cortex-A9 32-bit RISC processors with dual NEON SIMD coprocessors. Options for 160KLE and 480KLE devices are also available. This MPU can run a rich set of real-time operating systems containing software APIs expected by modern system designers.  The ARM architecture supports several operating systems, including Linux.
