Forlinx introduces OK6254-C SBC based on TI’s Sitara AM6254 processor

Jul 20, 2022 — by Giorgio Mendoza 2,570 views

Last month at Embedded World 2022, Forlinx presented the OK6254-C Single Board Computer (SBC) compatible with a System-on-Module powered by the newest quad-core Sitara AM625 processor from Texas Instruments. This SBC offers 8GB of eMMC, triple displays ,dual LAN ports, and optional cellular connectivity. 

The FET6254-C SoM uses the Sitara AM623 chip, which combines a quad-core Cortex-A53 processor (up to 1.4GHz), a Cortex-M4F real-time core (up to 400MHz) and an AXE1-16M GPU that supports OpenGL ES 3.1 and OpenCL 3.0 and Vulkan 1.2.

The RAM can be upgraded up to 2GB, unlike the eMMC flash storage which is set to 8GB. The SBC includes a MicroSD card socket, 2Kbit EEPROM and 128Mbit QSPI flash for additional storage.

The triple display interface consists of a 16-bit RGB parallel interface, two dual-channel LVDS ports. Forlinx recommends their own 10.1’’ LVDS module, 7’’ LCD module, as well as the OV5645 camera module for quick product integration.

This SoM is also available with other processor models i.e. the single-core AM6251 and the dual-core AM6252. The product page shows a quick comparison table between the AM335x and the AM62x processor family.
