Simplifying and Shortening Time to Market, Without Compromise

SolidRun’s leading System on a Module (SOM) family is designed for embedded systems product developers and OEMs. SolidRun has packed a Marvell ARMADA 388 SoC (System-on-Chip), memory subsystem, I/O and interconnected subsystems into a single ultra-compact System-on-Module sized at 35mm x 50mm. The SOM is available in a variety of power, memory and storage configurations, offering engineers a unique set of off-the-shelf design features and benefits such as faster time to market, lowers design costs and reduced risks.

  • High Speed Connectivity

    SolidRun’s A388 SOM comes in multiple standard configurations featuring a wide range of high performance processing options, multiple memory and storage options, and a wide array of standard and high speed I/Os including Multiple Gigabit Ethernet, Serial-ATA, Mini-PCIe, USB-2.0/ USB-3.0 ports.

  • Price / Performance

    The A388 SOM offers high performance at an attractive price point for demanding applications such as vCPEs, NAS, DVR / NVR and high performance networking products in industrial and commercial deployments.

  • Networking and Communications

    A388 SOM offers advanced features that are optimized for applications such as enterprise Wifi Access Point (WAP) and NAS, with its efficient power delivery and right combination of performance / storage capacity at low cost of operation.

  • Ease of Development

    The SolidRun A388 SOM allows easy development of customer boards due to its compact size and rich connectivity. It enables the design of high-end products, according to the specific requirements, with little complexity while embedding the most complex design details inside the SOM itself.
