The Mini2440 405 MHz ARM9 Family has several members. The Mini2440 is a 10x10 cm PCB with the Samsung S3C2440A SOC (System On Chip). It has two kinds of Flash, NAND and NOR, 64 MBytes of RAM, and all the peripheral I/O. Please see the Mini2440-SDK page for details. All boards come with a 2 year warranty.
There are versions with 3.5, 4.3, 5.0, and 7" LCDs, and a VGA adapter for 1024x768. Basic systems have 256 MBytes of NAND Flash. This is enough for 95 percent of applications. There is a NAND option for 1024 MByte (1GByte) and this is becoming more popular. Up to 32 GBytes of Flash can fit the SD Card socket. Here is the naming scheme:
Mini2440 is the PCB with processor.
The change in the Mini2440 bootloader has been trouble for some OEMs who don't need changes. Good news. We are set up to JTAG the Supervivi bootloader for anyone who needs it (takes less than a minute to unpack, JTAG the loader, repack) and we have an SD card for those who buy in volume. The SD card uses the new Superboot2440 to burn Supervivi to the NOR chip and reset the system to the old style loader. This does not even need a PC. As the boards are unpacked for production programming just use the SD first and convert to Supervivi. To make your own, see this How To.
Did we mention the new change to the venerable Mini2440? The minimum NAND size is now 256 MBytes and the bootloader is Superboot2440. No more DNW binary transfers over serial and USB, no special UASB drivers needed. The Mini2440 can program itself from an SD card, just like the 6410, 210, and 4412 processors. Need to program in production? Clone some SD cards and go as fast as needed. If you are set up for production with PC hosts, the move to Superboot2440 costs nothing more than some SD cards, and it frees up your programming systems for other uses. Field upgrades just require insertion of the SD, switch to NOR mode, and power up. You can even send the files to a distant customer or service rep to prepare an SD and update their equipment.
Mini35 is the Mini2440 + 3.5" LCD. The LCD module is the same width as the Mini2440 and easily mounts on the board.
Mini70 is the Mini2440 + 7" LCD
SDK is the System Developer's Kit of serial, USB, and Ethernet cables and a power supply and DVD. The NAND option is not a separate item. It designates which version of the Mini2440 to ship.
OEM means a Mini2440 with no SDK. OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer, and these boards are usually bought for use in an embedded product. You can save weight and money if you combine SDK and OEM versions. For example, if you need to make 10 devices and have two people doing development you can purchase 2 SDK and 8 OEM, provided you will not need the PSU and cables in the final product. Note that we do not recommend the SDK PSU for commercial use. It is a simple supply suitable for the lab and development. For better fusing and full certificatons, see the German PSU under the Accessories listings.
Mini35 E.L.L.K. Embedded Linux Learning Kit. A condensation of the stuff you really need to know how to do, and how to do it! Created by author and teacher Doug Abbott. A Mini35 system with DVD and book. It isn't very big, as computer books go (ever have to cut a programming book into three sections so you could hold it while reading?) and it won't drive you crazy trying to find the important part. This IS the important part. You will need a Linux system on a PC. Mini35 E.L.L.K $219.95
Mini2440-SDK is a developer's kit and includes everything you see here. The OEM version is the CPU hardware alone. Mini2440-OEMs are used by anyone who needs more than one board and does not need development tools for each. Some people get one. Others get 1000 a month. The OEM version saves a great deal on shipping weight and bulk. Mini2440-SDK $99.95
Mini35 is a Mini2440 with a 3.5" LCD. The display is 320x240 with an integrated touch pad. This is a very nice high contrast LCD that can mount to the Mini2440. It is shipped mounted on brass standoffs. Mini35 $119.95
Mini70 is a Mini2440 with a 7" Innolux LCD. The display is 800x480 and the touch pad is replaceable (see the 'Spares' section). This display has a full sized PCB on the back and solid plastic bezel and frame. The result is a very strong 7" system with good solid physical support. Mini70 $194.95
The MiniVGA is a Mini2440 with this VGA adapter PCB that mounts like the LCD.
