Logic PDs Wireless Innovation Wins Design News Golden Mousetrap Award


DM3730 Torpedo + Wireless SOM is named the winner of the Embedded Computing/Processing category

MINNEAPOLIS Feb. 14, 2013 Logic PDs DM3730 Torpedo + Wireless System on Module (SOM) is the winner of the Design News Golden Mousetrap Award in the Embedded Computing/Processing category. This is the third accolade Logic PDs innovation has captured since the product was launched less than a year ago. In August, Embedded Computing Design magazine named Logic PDs wireless SOM a Top Embedded Innovation, and in December, it was selected as the Most Innovative New Product in the hardware and general technology category by CONNECT, a San Diego County-based organization.

Logic PDs Torpedo + Wireless SOM enables OEMs to design end products easier and deliver them to market faster. Based on the DaVinci DM3730 video processor and WiLinkTM 7.0 (WL1283) combo connectivity solution from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI), Logic PDs Torpedo + Wireless SOM encapsulates the most complex design components on a dime-sized board and offers high performance and the lowest power consumption available today. This tiny, off-the-shelf wireless interface enables remote connectivity, eliminates the local user interface, and allows developers to dramatically condense hardware space requirements and increase system performance. The Torpedo + Wireless SOM can also be used for development on the Sitara AM37x ARM Cortex processors from TI.

The Torpedo + Wireless SOM provides PC-like speeds up to 1 GHz, long battery life and a WL1283 wireless chipset that includes 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth technology, and the Torpedo + Wireless SOM roadmap to support GPS. Additionally, the DM3730 Torpedo + Wireless SOM is FCC certified. This saves customers significant time and money by reducing design risk and shortening the final electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing phase. The ultra-compact Torpedo + Wireless SOM is an ideal off-the-shelf solution for use in wireless machine-to-machine (M2M) applications such as telehealth devices and remote industrial monitoring systems.

Logic PD provides Android and Linux board support packages (BSPs) for use with the DM3730 Torpedo + Wireless SOM. These BSPs are designed, developed and tested using an ISO 13485 certified process to ensure quality and reduce risk. By maintaining connector compatibility with Logic PDs existing Torpedo SOM product lines, the DM3730 Torpedo + Wireless SOM extends the longevity of existing products through performance improvements while sustaining scalability to future technologies.
