ICnova AP7000 OEMplus - with USB 2.0 high speed host

ICnova AP7000 OEMplus

The ICnova AP7000 OEMplus is the smallest AVR32 AP7000 based linux board with an USB host interface. A missing USB-Host on the AT32AP7000 is no constraint any more and hooking up an external hard drive or an optical drive is easily done. This module is equipped with a huge amount of memory to realise even complex applications without memory extension. It has 256MB NAND Flash, 64MB Mobile SD-RAM and 1MB NOR-Flash for the bootloader. The SD-RAM is connected with a 32bit wide bus to use the full performance of the AT32AP7000. The board is ready to go and needs only a single 3.3V power supply. All Linux sources are open source and can be ordered on a CD. By using the ICnova AP7000 OEMplus module there is no need to develop a multilayer pcb for external components. The board can easily be snapped into the matching sockets.

A free Eagle Library is available in the downloads section.

The ICnova AP7000 OEMplus has the following features:

  • AT32AP7000 processor with up to 210DMPIS at 140MHz clock
  • 64MB SDRAM
  • 8MB NOR-Flash, 16 bit wide
  • 256MB NAND
  • internal Vreg, VIN=3.3V
  • all peripherals available at connectors
  • very small footprint 40mm x 35mm
  • long term availability (>5 years)

Suitable application development boards

In-Circuit offers a wide range of Application Development Boards that can be used to develop your products and solutions while reducing your development time.

These evaluation boards help you to evaluate the features and performance of selected products and system solutions. Our evaluation boards demonstrate optimized and tested solutions for your application design. These boards are designed mainly for your evaluation, design and testing purposes.

Basically all our ADBs feature: Ethernet, USB-Host, USB_Device, SDC
Exceptions to this are listed in the Notes column of the following table.

All Modules provided by In-Circuit usally have a Buildroot based system preinstalled, so they can be used out of the box.
Login as "root" for which no password is set.

If you are new to kernel building please refer to First Steps with Buildroot.

The board support package contains all sources required to build the linux image for the ICnova AP7000 OEMplus on the main ADB.
The most recent version is listed at the bottom of this page. Other versions can be found on the Downloads page.

Generally the bootloaders on our modules are configured to loook for a bootable linux image on the SD-Card and only boot from flash if none is found.

On the ICnova AP7000 OEMplus the bootloader u-boot is preinstalled on the on-board flash.
