SILICA Expands ArchiTech with the Addition of Hachiko

SILICA is launching a new ArchiTech development board that offers a low cost streamlined platform for Linux based designs. The ArchiTech Hachiko board is supplied with a Linux kernel optimised for the Renesas RZ/A1H MCU, to work with a small memory footprint together with a BSP (Board Support Package) for the on-board peripherals, minimizing development time. The Linux distribution with Hachiko is Yocto compatible, enabling customers to create custom Linux based systems quickly whilst avoiding the complexity of standard MPU boards. The developers at SILICA have ported GUI libraries to the distribution with a demo application and source code is available in open source. The Renesas RZ/A1H processor used in the Hachiko board is based on the ARM® CortexTM A9 MCU core and offers a large capacity, 10MB, RAM. This allows high data throughput at low latency without the use of external DDR and a simplified power design. Other features include an HDMI output, a USB host, 128MByte SPIFI, an Ethernet port and an expansion connector for all unused pins. Hachiko also offers CAN and MOST channels for in car entertainment applications. Options include SDRAM and 7” wide LCD touch screen with drivers included in the BSP. Hachiko has been developed as a reference design that can easily be replicated for production for applications including Door Entry Phones, Vending Machines, Barcode Scanners, Surveillance, and Data Communication Modules. The board will be exclusively available from SILICA and Avnet Express for less than EUR 100.
