Here comes the DropA5D22 - smaller and even more energy efficient


Today our portfolio gets bigger with a new CPU-module on our side. It is named DropA5D22.


It provides the newest microprocessor of Atmel, the SAMA5D2. This chip has the right price-to-performance ratio with the world´s lowest power consumption for all MPUs in its class.


Its ARM Cortex-A5 core includes NEON (floating point and parallelizing unit), as well as cryptographic functions like AES, SHA and a true random number generator (TRNG).


Most conspicuous feature of the DropA5D22 is the very small size: we shrinked the board to only 46 mm x 25 mm (1.81 in x 0.98 in) and further decreased power consumption. Supply current in standby mode is less than 1 mA while keeping the entire RAM contents. The DropA5D22 wakes up from standby in well below 0.1 milliseconds.


tl_files/cust/img/prod/com/DropA5D22 -- ARM Prozessor.pngThe Drop boots from its on-board serial flash and/or microSD card, or optionally from external flash memory. DropA5D22 is shipped with a full featured Linux 4.7 operating system.


The comprehensive multiplexing of the 72 PIO-pins provides for various interface configurations.

embedded world in Nuremberg

From Tuesday, Feb. 24th until Thursday, Feb. 26th about 900 exhibitors will present their products at the leading fair for embedded systems in Nuremberg/Germany, the 'embedded world'. Of course taskit will take part too. As is usual in Hall 1, booth no. 303.

Focus: new asemblies with Cortex core, as the computer-on-module StampA5D36, the mini-pc PortuxA5 and PanelA5, a compact combination of a board with a 7" display for industrial use, optional with a fetching, IP-protected housing.

Bluetooth Smart is the last year released and latest standard with exceptionally low energy consumption. It has the potential for a new benchmark for measurement and logging.
We'll show examples: the converter BLE232 with already strong demand building a wireless bridge between two serial ports (paired use). Moreover a new way of ph-measuring according to the principle 'my mobile is my display'.

We of taskit develop und manufacture long-term available components - customized solutions as well. This year's and in the future we will point it much stronger.

Last not least our I/O network gpio.net will be on focus. Control and check the values of light, heating, watering and humidity of a small greenhouse - live! Several Housing solutions demonstrate the flexible concept for an automation application.

New compact housing for gpio.net

The very compact design is made of eloxed aluminium and stores up to 3 modules besides the controller unit ipcore. A use case could be a trigger based fluid drive, realized in combination of the module AI with its analogue inputs and the relay module. For this 2 cards and controller unit the double-stack housing compact+2 is the right choice.


With a height of just 45 mm it differs from the compact+3 in front panel design. Even more flat -just 30 mm- the housing version compact+1 is as well available. It is optimal for applications with only one gpio.net module combined with a controller board.


All housings of this series are on stock now and have the minimum size of 104 mm width and 167 mm length. The modular design is flexible for costumized solutions: may be more than 3 module are requested or you need your logo engraved? Please contact us - we manufacture your individual design, be it small scale or large.

Embedded World 2014 in Retrospect

Stamp goes Cortex - the StampA5D36 as a new member of our successful CoM series was in focus. Our developer team is currently dealing with many inquiries for our new CPU module, as well as for request for customized design.


Just a few month ago Blutooth Smart had been launched and inspired us for an innovate solution: the converter BLE232 was another novelty exhibited on embedded world 2014 and provides Bluetooth Low Energy for serial interfaces.


Exciting new implementations are waiting, older bus systems will be able to connect to this latest wireless technology. For sure further solutions with Bluetooth Smart will emerge and be highlighted next.


taskit developer team at the embedded world 2014, in Nuremberg

Thanks to all visitors and for their friendly feedback! With or without our well requested, company-colored donuts: we are looking forward to the next opportunity for a live presentation of our products.

The embedded world meets in Nuremberg

The Embedded World Exhibition offers an overview of the latest embedded technologies to visitors.

Traditionally like the past years taskit is participating in this exhibition. Our developer team are going to present our new technologies in Hall 1, booth 303 including technologies like a compact converter that enable the use of Bluetooth Smart (often known as Bluetooth low energy) between serial interfaces und bus systems.


Another innovation is the StampA5D36, a new mainstream product of the Stamp computer-on-module family.

Based on a Cortex-A5 core and equipped with an encryption chip and additional specific safety features:
enhanced data security namely summarized as VAULTsec.

Benefits of all previous Stamp cpu modules are now unified on ultra compact footprint of just 53 x 42 x 6 mm:
high energy efficiency, industrial-suited connectors, long-term availability, Linux support, a wide range of peripherals and a LCD controller.


The team of taskit at the exhibition is pleased to meet you.
A good cup of Nespresso coffee and fresh baked donuts are waiting too ...
