Mouser Electronics has joined forces with Gumstix and inked a global agreement. Gumstix is a leading industry in design-to-order embedded systems. As part of the agreement, Mouser Electronics becomes an authorized distributor of Gumstix’s comprehensive portfolio of award-winning single board computers and embedded boards for the industrial, Internet of Things (IoT), smart home, medical, military, and automotive markets.
The Gumstix Overo computers-on-module (COMs) are available from Mouser Electronics in three varieties to provide engineers with exceptional design flexibility: the entry-level Overo EarthSTORM COM, graphics-focused Overo IceSTORM COM, and Overo IronSTORM-Y COM with Bluetooth 4.1 low energy technology and 802.11b/g/n wireless communications with Access Point mode.
To enable engineers to test LoRa protocol solutions based on an Overo COM, the Overo Conduit LoRa Gateway includes a Microchip LAN9221 controller for 10/100 Base-T Ethernet capabilities, plus headers to connect to a RisingHF RHF0M301 module and an Overo COM.
Gumstix has a comprehensive product portfolio which will now be available through Mouser. Gumstix products like the Overo Conduit LoRa Gateway enable engineers to test LoRa protocol solutions based on an Overo COM.
For engineers using a BeagleBone Black for prototyping, Gumstix offers two capes. The BBB Astro Cape is a capacitive-touchscreen-ready expansion board with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies. The BBB Rover Cape is a “robot-ready” expansion board with 9-axis inertial module, GPS capabilities, wireless connectivity, and pulse-width modulators (PWM) for servo control.
To support Raspberry Pi boards and the Raspberry Pi Compute Module, engineers can take advantage of expansion boards from Gumstix like the Pi Compute FastFlash, The Pi Newgate, and The Pi Compute Dev Board all with a wide range of capabilities for the ease of engineers.
Mouser is also stocking a series of GPS and camera peripherals for Gumstix devices. The Pre-GO PPP (Precise Point Positioning), provides a high level of global positioning accuracy. The Tiny Caspa parallel camera sensor board delivers reliable video feeds directly to the Overo family of COMs and to many expansion boards and SBCs in the Gumstix line.
In addition to all these, Mouser will also offer the Gumstix Pepper and more advanced Poblano single board computers.
The Pepper 43C and Pepper 43R boards with an Arm Cortex-A8 processor, 512 MBytes of DDR3, 802.11 b/g/n connectivity with AP mode, and Bluetooth 4.1 and Bluetooth low energy.
The Poblano 43C features a powerful TI Sitara AM438 processor, 3D graphics processor, multi-touch capabilities, Wi-Fi, camera connector, and embedded NAND flash storage.
