The EM-X270 is an embedded computer board, produced by Compulab, an Israel-based company specialising in Single Board Computers (SBC). The board has a range of optional components which can be specified for full mobile phone capabilities, and more (to a level similar to that of the Neo1973), as detailed below:

Contents

Main components

Touchscreen

3.5" VGA (640x480)

Processor

Intel Xscale PXA270, 312/520MHz

System memory

128MB SDRAM, 100MHz, 32bit

Onboard storage

512MB NAND flash, non-volatile

Operating System

uBoot

Angstrom Linux

[more info]

Connectivity

GSM/GPRS

Quad-band Telit GE864 module [AT Command Set]

WiFi

802.11b with a Philips chipset
Not yet supported by Linux (planned for December)

Bluetooth

Bluetooth v2.0 + EDR

GPS

Navman Jupiter 32 [Data Sheet], with NMEA output

Battery

Li-Ion, charged over USB

Peripheral connectivity

SD socket, with SDIO capability

USB

USB 1.1, with host and slave capabilities

Serial port

RS232, 16550 compatible

GPIO

up to 16 dedicated lines, shared with keypad (if present)

Availability

Modules

Compulab has a strict sales policy: only to companies, only in large quantities, only if one evaluation board is bought

To make this device available for the open source developer community, there is an idea for a group purchase (Features EM-X270-C520-W-H-K + LCD35+KEYPAD+BAT10) organized by the [Handheld Linux Shop] which would come to approx. 649 EUR (incl. VAT) / 750 US$ (excl. Tax) if 100 units are reached (20% less if 500 units). Contact: mailto:sales@handheld-linux.com

Case

The PDA module has no case. So we should find someone who can design and manufacture a robust polymer/metal case. Alternatively, we could produce files allowing users to make their own. Schematics for the dimensions of the Compulab circuitry are provided here along with various other development friendly files.
