Artila’s Matrix-522 industrial box computer is a small form-factor, low power
consumption, and Linux-ready computing platform. With a 400MHz ARM9
CPU, 64MB SDRAM, 128MB NAND Flash, and 2MB Data Flash inside,
Matrix-522 ensures system high performance. Matrix-522 is equipped with
multiple I/O interfaces, including 2 LANs, 2 x RS-232/422/485 serial ports, 2
x CAN bus ports, 2 x USB hosts, and 21 x GPIOs. It is easy to develop
pure C/C++ programs or Web-based applications (ex: SQLite+ PHP) to run
on top of the Matrix-522.
The CAN bus (Control Area Network) is one of the dominating
communication interface for embedded control systems both in automobile
industry and factory automation industry. The Matrix-522 comes with two
isolated CAN bus 2.0 compliant ports, supporting CANSocket and
Matrix-522 also provides a useful fail-proof design for system backup and
recovery. Normally, Matrix-522 boots up from its NAND Flash. However,
the Data Flash in Matrix-522 includes a backup Linux file system as well,
which will automatically boot up Matrix-522 in case the primary NAND
Flash fails. If the Matrix-522 boots up from the Data Flash, a menu-driven
program will appear to help users restore NAND Flash images from a USB
pen drive or an SD card. Also, this program can help users make an
custom image of the current file system to a USB pen drive or an SD card,
so that users can easily recover the file system, or duplicate it to other
Matrix-522s. Please refer to the user guide for more detailed information.
With pre-installed Linux OS, users can easily operate Matrix-522 via Telnet, or
transfer files using FTP.
Matrix-522 comes with a free GNU tool chain for users to develop C/C++
programs. Comprehensive examples are also available in Matrix-522 product
CD to demonstrate how to access I/O interface and hardware features.
Matrix-522’s Linux environment is highly scalable and configurable. A variety
of driver modules and software utilities are included in the product CD.
Advanced customization service is also available upon request.
