In this period of economic slowdown, where OEMs are looking for solutions which
could speed up their product design, e-con Systems, an embedded product design
services specialist, has come up with a host of add-on modules on top of its PXA270
reference design, SIRIUS. The company feels that these add on modules could save
valuable time for the OEM, who otherwise would be spending considerable time in
developing and testing the design and also validating the software. The modules have
been chosen carefully so that they help the customer achieve a very competitive bill
of material at the same time faster time-to-market. For example, if the mechanicals
have been finalized, e-con estimates that for a prototype handheld battery-powered
point-of-sale terminal that would have the PXA270 processor with 128 MB SDRAM, 32MB
NOR flash, 512MB NAND flash and with peripherals such as Wi-Fi, Ethernet, thermal
printer, bar code reader, GPRS/GSM, audio, GPS, finger print, LCD and touch screen
