The Colibri PXA270 is a widely used SODIMM sized computer module based on the Intel/Marvell XScale® Arm® PXA270M processor. Colibri PXA270 modules run at 312MHz or 520MHz, and consume less than 800mW. The processor's power consumption is optimized using Intel Wireless Speedstep® Technology. The module comes with a pre-installed and fully licensed WinCE 5/6 core OS. Linux is also available.

The Colibri PXA270 is a widely used SODIMM sized computer module based on the Intel/Marvell XScale® Arm® PXA270M processor. Colibri PXA270 modules run at 312MHz or 520MHz, and consume less than 800mW. The processor's power consumption is optimized using Intel Wireless Speedstep® Technology. Colibri modules feature state of the art technology, aiming at low power systems that require high CPU performance. They also provide all the interfaces needed in a modern embedded device.
Besides the internal Flash memory, there are plenty of interfaces available for data storage: USB-MemoryStick, CompactFlash/PCMCIA and SDCard.
Colibri modules provide glueless connectivity to passive and active LCDs with resolutions of up to 1024x768, as well as 4-wire resistive touch screens. An integrated 16 bit stereo codec allows playing and recording of audio. Colibris can directly connect to a CMOS camera sensor.
In addition Colibris offer 100 MBit Ethernet as well as USB host and USB device connectivity.
Flexibility and Second Source
Colibris can be scaled to meet specific cost requirements. The entire CPU bus is available for custom extensions, such as special interfaces for high bandwidth applications.
Colibri modules can be used as a replacement for Keith & Koep's Trizeps III / IV family of modules.
Professional Development Tools
Colibris come with a pre-installed Windows CE operating system and state of the art development tools that allow an easy customization of the system to make it fit specific needs (e.g. LCD settings & timings, integration of customer software and the auto-start option at startup).
Users can therefore concentrate on their actual application without going through the hassle of setting up an operating system. Special drivers are delivered by Toradex on request.
