Friday, January 24, 2014:  Italian embedded Linux manufacturer Acme Systems has developed the new Arietta G25 computer-on-module (COM): a tiny DIY-oriented module built around Atmel’s 400MHz ARM9 SAM9G25 SoC. The new COM is equipped with the same Atmel AT91SAM9G20 processor used by an updated Fox G20 single board computer (SBC), as well as a newer €24 Aria G25 COM that is more closely related to the Arietta G25. Acme Systems has started pre-orders at €10 ($14).

The 50 x 25mm Arietta G25 has been developed for the DIY crowd, particularly designed for compact, low-cost, low-power, embedded gizmos: Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The Arietta G25 module sports 128MB of DDR2 RAM and a 32GB-ready microSD slot. The lack of Ethernet port or video interface has been met with the addition of USB interfaces that support an optional WiFi radio that adds €7 to the price, plus another €7 for the antenna.

Other I/O is accessed via a 2×20-pin header connector that includes three USB 2.0 ports, one of which is available with an optional, €7 USB-to-serial interface. This can be used to link the debug port to a PC USB host port and access the Linux system console using a terminal emulator program. It is possible to have a LAN link with the PC using the USB device port in case users are looking for network access to the Arietta board without adding the optional WiFi adapter. Additional I/O includes three UARTs, I2C, SPI, A/D converters, and PWM interfaces. The 3.3V DC-powered module operates between -20 to 70° C.

MicroSD cards containing the Debian Linux image are available in 4GB , 8GB , and 16GB capacities. Fully open source firmware, software environments, and toolchain will be available from Atmel, Linux sites, and various Acme Systems repositories on GitHub. The Arietta G25 is available for pre-sale through the end of the month for €10, with prices edging upward each month to the final €20 price when it ships in May.
