Release date- 11022014 - Mobile enterprise products tend to have a plethora of lower bandwidth wireless, sensor, and I/O connectivity requirements - often going beyond what is typically deployed in smartphones and tablets.
These UART-based peripherals include 2G wireless modules, high-frequency modules, 1D and 2D barcode scanners, GPS modules, RS-232 ports, IrDA controllers, Bluetooth modules and more. While mobile enterprise product capability is increasing, the TI Sitara application processors currently being used typically do not offer an appropriate number of UARTs for many mobile applications.
For products with embedded point-of-sale capability, merchants are moving to upgrade their systems to ensure worldwide payment compatibility and enhanced security through the adoption of SAMs. Commonly used application processors, such as the TI Sitara, either do not have sufficient SAM controllers or do not support the emerging HSP standard. As a result, there is a need for an integrated HSP SAM bridge solution to augment the application processor's functionality.
Orion reference design is verified on the TI BeagleBoard platform.
