Elimo Engineering Impetus SoM and Initium Development Platform

Elimo Engineering’s Impetus is a 42-mm, M2-form-factor System on Module (SoM) created to save design time in integrating a Linux system into your final use case. At the centre is the Sochip/Allwinner S3 SoC, with an ARM Cortex-A7 clocked at 1.2 GHz and paired with 1 Gb of DDR3 DRAM. Impetus also provides the user with the following peripherals for a complete connectivity and audio-visual system.

  • Broadcom 43455 WiFi IEEE 802.11abgn
  • Broadcom 43455 Bluetooth 4.2/BLE
  • RGB LCD Interface
  • MIPI Camera Interface
  • Video Engine for hardware accelerated encoding/decoding
  • IEEE 802.3 Ethernet MAC
  • USB2.0 (Host, Device, OTG)
  • 1x USB 2.0 OTG controller with PHY
  • 1x SPI controller
  • PWM
  • ADC
  • 3x UART controllers
  • 2x I2C controllers
  • uSD, eMMC, SPI Flash Support
  • Audio Line In/Out
  • I2S/PCM interface

For easy evaluation of Impetus, Elimo’s Initium development platform breaks out Impetus’ M2-pin interfaces to convenient connectors. A USB-C connector is provided for power and easy access to an application UART over USB-UART bridge. Ethernet 10/100 PHY, USB-2.0 OTG-capable connector, audio jacks, convenient diagnostic LEDs, and all the M2 signals are provided on a labelled header with an expansion slot for additional peripherals.
