Published as a News Article on May 2, 2010

Technologic Systems announces the release of a new addition to the 250MHz Series of Single Board Computers (SBC), the TS-7553, for the second quarter of 2010. The TS-7553 is, at the time of release, our lowest cost stand-alone single board computer with a low cost plastic enclosure option.


The TS-7553 is a single board computer based on a 250MHz ARM9 CPU from Cavium Networks with 64MB DDR-RAM. The TS-7553 offers features such as High-Speed USB host and device, 256MB XNAND drive, MicroSD card, WiFi 802.11g radio option, Bluetooth capabilities, Power over Ethernet (PoE) option, XBee option, and 5K LUT customizable on-board OpenCore FPGA.

The standard TS-7553 configuration implements the following features:

  • 4 XUARTs* (2-RS232, 1-RS485, and 1 TTL level to Xbee socket)
    • Alternative FPGA bitstream available with an additional 4 XUARTs (minus 1 CAN bus)
  • 1 CAN Bus
  • SPI Support
  • I2C Support
  • DMX Support
  • Watchdog Timer
  • Up to 12 DIO Lines
  • Battery Backed RTC
  • Optional USB 802.11g WiFi Adapter
  • XBee Radio Socket (In Development)
  • USB Bluetooth Adapter Capable
  • Temperature Sensor
  • Designed to fit in an optional low-cost plastic enclosure
  • Multipurpose Reset/Script Button


The TS-7553 SBCs are configured to load Debian "Lenny" Linux from the onboard XNAND Drive or MicroSD Card during boot up time. The onboard XNAND Drive uses a minimal Debian "Lenny" Linux distribution that has been compacted to fit in the 256MB space and leave about 70MB free for the user and includes utilities such as apt-get for installing and removing programs. The MicroSD card uses a full featured Debian "Lenny" Linux distribution which includes a complete GNU C/C++ embedded development environment. In addition, Apache Web Server, FTP, SSH, Telnet and Samba network services are available with C/PHP/Perl for embedded CGI development. In addition, the Eclipse IDE for Windows configured for out-of-the-box embedded development with the TS-7553 computer is provided with the 2GB microSD Card.


Technologic Systems XNAND technology is an ultra reliable and industrial grade user-space device driver that uses Reed-Solomon codes, extra checksums, and a RAID based technique to allow any Linux filesystem to be used with confidence on SLC NAND flash. Our TS-BOOTROM can also boot from XNAND for an ultra-reliable bootup. Please refer to the XNAND whitepaper for more information.


The TS-7553 quantity 1 price is $135 with an optional $15 plastic enclosure. Quantity discounts are available. For further information regarding product specifications, visit Technologic Systems website at www.embeddedTS.com or call at 480-837-5200.
