Samsung Primary CPU is 400MHz and the ARM architecture allows this Device to supply a remarkable flexibility and efficiency in computing power, together with reduced power consumption.
Secondary CPU AITP (Automotive Intensive Task Processor) supplies the necessary functionalities in the automotive field, like power management, Safe Shutdown, Wheel Pulses Odometer, Distance and Speed calculation, Wake-Up on Ring, Over-the-Air services for software and firmware updates.
The AITP is OTA programmable for remote automatic firmware upgrade, and is always powered ON; it can turn-ON and OFF the Device and all its peripherals.
IDEAL FOR FLEET MANAGEMENT AND JOB DISPATCHING
Its GPRS/EDGE modem (optionally also UMTS modem) allows very reliable communication with operating headquarters. The vehicle is located by the high performance GPS U-Blox 6 receiver with 50 channels, and compatible with the new European positioning system GALILEO.
Both GPS and GPRS modules can be powered ON and OFF regardless of Windows CE status.
An Hardware MUX Port is available which allows to send AT commands to the modem while the device is connected in GPRS, for example to request connection status, signal diagnostic and modem statistics.
All the communication and tracking features are assured by the AITP processor even when the Device is powered OFF: the GPS and GPRS modules are managed by the AITP both for power supply and for communication.
CUSTOMIZABLE USER INTERFACE
The 7 inches 16:9 clear readable TFT Displays with 800x480 resolution allow to develop versatile and high accessible applications, thanks also to the integrated TouchScreen controller, and to the 9 keys with LEDs available.
Hardware Keys avoid consumption and damage of Touch Screen for heavily used operations.
The ambient light sensor allows to choose an optimal brightness of the display in any environmental light.
The power key is a Smart Power Button, completely programmable and used to perform several important tasks such as:
Can be also disabled or programmed to trigger Ghost Mode (fake shutdown).
DOUBLE BOOT FEATURE
Through this powerful functionality is possible to restore and to update the entire system anytime, starting from user application up to the complete operating system and all the CPU firmwares.
The system is able to boot from two different disks:
Stealth mode is a special operating mode in which the system is working but the display is OFF. This feature can be useful in several situations:
The Device can withstand glitches at car start, or power loss problems thanks to the internal capacitors and to the minimum power voltage requested from the automotive CPU.
An optional External USP Battery is available for 1 hour operation without main power and the AITP processor can gives time to user applications and Windows to close gracefully and safely in case of sudden disconnection of the Main Power.
INPUTS AND OUTPUTS
The Device supplies a wide range of communication channels with the external environment: two USB Host, one USB Device and up to 8 Serial Ports.
The special programmable digital inputs and outputs allow to control devices and read signals coming from generic external equipments.
RAPID APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT
Microsoft Windows CE .NET Operative System and Compact Framework 3.5 combined with the completeallow the developers to create their applications and their services with the maximum simplicity and in very reduced time.
A rich set of Sample Source Code is provided, along with extensive support from Digitax Automotive highly trained Staff.
