Gumstix Announces IceSTORM Computer-on-Module
Drives embedded graphics applications in demanding, rugged environments
Redwood City, CA, Aug 14, 2015 – Gumstix, Inc., the premier provider of Linux® computers-on-module (COMs) for electronic manufacturers, educators and hobbyists, today announced the latest addition to its popular Overo STORM series computers-on-module, the Overo IceSTORM COM, geared towards extended temperature graphics applications.
Featuring the Texas Instruments DaVinci DM3730 digital media processor, the Overo IceSTORM COM offers PowerVR SGX530 graphics processing with OpenGLES, in addition to 1 GB of NAND flash memory and a Texas Instruments C64x digital signal processor (DSP) for further computing capabilities. Built with extended temperature components, the Overo IceSTORM COM is suitable for any embedded graphics application without wireless networking requirements, with a supported temperature range of -45 to 80 degrees Celcius.
“The Overo IceSTORM COM offers the same great graphics capabilities of our Overo WaterSTORM COM, but with enhanced environmental tolerance,” said Dr. W. Gordon Kruberg, president and CEO of Gumstix. “The ability to deploy advanced, off-the-shelf computing solutions in physically demanding environments allows our customers, particularly those with industrial applications, to get their custom application up and running quickly.”
As part of this Overo series refresh, Gumstix has announced that two COMs, the Overo TidalSTORM and Overo SandSTORM, will be discontinued; similar functionality for each can be found in the Overo WaterSTORM and Overo EarthSTORM COMs respectively. The Overo IceSTORM COM is available for $159 at www.gumstix.com.
