The open-spec OSD3358-SM-RED is the first Octavo Systems’ SBC based on one of its SiP modules. The SBC uses the 21 x 21mm OSD335x-SM  SiP module, which packs a 1GHz Texas Instruments Sitara AM3358 SoC.

The OSD3358-SM-RED, is a BeagleBone-like development platform for prototyping Octavo OSD3358 SiP based devices. Presumably, it will also work for projects based on the OSD3358-512M-ISM, a version of the OSD3358 SiP announced at Embedded World that adds -40 to 85°C support.

The OSD3358-SM-RED ships with extensive documentation, schematics, and Eagle design files, as well as Eagle or OrCAD symbol libraries. The custom Debian Linux image includes device tree.

Specifications listed for the OSD3358-SM-RED include:

  • Processor (via Octavo OSD3358 SiP) — TI Sitara AM335x (1x Cortex-A8 @ 1GHz); PowerVR SGX530 GPU; 32-bit 200MHz Cortex-M3 based programmable real-time units (PRUs)
  • Memory — (via Octavo OSD3358 SiP) — 512MB DDR3 RAM
