ZMS System Module

Simplify design-in with the ZiiLABS plug-in SODIMM modules

The ZiiLABS System Modules provide a powerful media-rich SODIMM-based solution that can significantly reduce the time, cost and complexity of introducing new products.

The small form factor module incorporates the core functions required of many embedded devices including: the ZMS media-rich applications processor, power manager, audio DAC, 256Mb mobile DDR RAM, 16MB ROM, USB, Ethernet and JTAG. The module connects via a standard SODIMM connector to expose the interfaces supported by the module, including: as multiple HD video I/O ports, SD cards, WiFi, NAND and USB 2.0

The module is supplied as a finished product with support for Android and a flexible reference Board Support Package. Schematics and board design data can also be made available to enable the direct manufacture and customisation of the module.

At the heart of the System Module is the ZMS low power processor capable of delivering advanced UI capabilities, OpenGL ES 3D graphics, rich media playback and record with 1080p HD video output.
