Keywords: Engineers, Control Systems, Snapper

Snapper 9G20 is as pin-compatible replacement to the existing Snapper 9260. The Snapper 9G20 is a high-performance module utilising the lastest DSP-enabled ARM9 core with an ultra low price tag. If a project is constrained by size and unit cost, Snapper 9G20 is the ideal choice and is one of the smallest module currently available, measuring approximately 25mm x 68mm x 5mm. Comparible on many factes to the other Snapper products, it too privdes an array of peripheral options.

This little SOM, with its impressive performance and on-board peripheral support, makes it easy to rapidly develop an embedded product. It provides engineers with a viable solution that is both cost-effective and transferable across a broad range of electronic designs and products.

Snapper 9260 is built around the Atmel AT91SAM9G20 microcontroller and has a fully-featured system controller. Its extensive set of standard, on-board memory and peripherals enable engineers of embedded electronics to design and develop a wide range of products. The Snapper 9G20 System Module has the ability to power several peripherals on/off, either for reduced power consumption or to allow for shared peripherals to be used.

This module offers all of the popular interfaces needed in an embedded system. Peripherals include CF and MCI interfaces for data storage, two USB host ports and one USB device port, SPI, I2C and a Real Time Clock. The module also includes a fully-featured embedded Linux 2.6.29 or WinCE 6.0 kernel, providing engineers with a wealth of resources for development and support as well as a comprehensive board support package. Using Snapper 9G20 in the design and development process is a sure way to help reduce a project's risk, as the module is fully tested and verified.
