2.5″ Pico-ITX Single Board Computer based on STM32MP13x microcontrollers

May 8, 2023 — by Giorgio Mendoza 865 views

iWave Systems recently announced the iW-RainboW-G54S STM32MP13x LGA System on Module aimed at low-power embedded and consumer applications. The company also unveiled a compatible SBC to provide access to extensive peripherals.

This iWave Systems OSM can be configured with any of the following three STM32 microcontrollers with Armv7 Architecture:


  • STM32MP131 – 32-bit Single Arm Cortex-A7 (up to 1GHz)
  • STM32MP133 – 32-bit Single Arm Cortex-A7 (up to 1GHz)
  • STM32MP135 – 32-bit Single Arm Cortex-A7 (up to 1GHz)

These SoM can also be ordered with or without the Secure boot and Cryptography capabilities. The SBC features a few switches allowing the system to boot from the MicroSD card, QSPI Flash, etc.

From the images attached, the SBC appears to integrate an industrial grade u-Blox NEO-M8Q-01A GNSS module that is described as a “ROM-based Automotive Grade concurrent GNSS module, targeted for use in hazardous environments such as automotive applications.

For documentation, iWave Systems provides datasheets, schematics and Linux resources, although users need to register on their website beforehand.
