A Smaller STM32MP1 SoM – Meet MYIR MYC-YA15XC-T CPU Module

Spread the love


MYIR launched a fairly compact SoM and accompanying development board based on STM32MP1 Cortex-A7 microprocessor in January 2020. But apparently, the 45mm by 43mm MYC-YA157C module was too big (or expensive) for some customers, so the company has now designed a smaller STM32MP1 SoM with MYC-YA157C-T measuring just 39mm by 37mm thanks to the removal of the Ethernet PHY.

The module is especially suited to industrial control, consumer electronics, smart home, medical devices, and the company provides Linux 5.4.31 and the source code for the necessary drivers.

While MYC-YA15XC-T CPU is the smallest STM32MP1 system-on-module from MYIR Tech, other have designed even smaller module including NanoSOM nS02 (25.4 x 25.4 x 3 mm), and if you really need something as compact as possible Octavo Systems OSD32MP15x system-in-package comes with STM32MP1  processor, up to 1GB RAM, and the PMIC in just an 18x18mm footprint, albeit with eMMC flash storage.

MYD-YA15XC-T Development Board

To quickly get started with the module, MYIR also offers the MYD-YA15XC-T development board with the following key features:

  • System-on-module – MYIR MYC-YA15XC-T described above
  • Storage – MicroSD card slot
  • Display I/F
    • 50-pin FPC connector for LCD display up to 1366 x 768 @ 60fps. Supports MYIR’s MY-LCD70TP-C LCD Module with capacitive touch screen
    • 50-pin 2.54mm pitch header RGB/TP Extension Interface
    • HDMI via MYIR’s MY-RGB2HDMI Module through the LCD interface
  • Camera I/F
    • 30-pin FPC connector for MYIR’s MY-CAM011B camera module
    • 20-pin 2.54mm pitch expansion header with MIPI CSI

Besides the camera and display modules, the company can also provide other expansion boards such as an LCD to HDMI module,  the MY-WIREDCOM RPI module to extend CAN, RS485, and RS232 functions through the Raspberry Pi header, as well MY-WF005S WiFi/BT module connected via the header with SDIO.

Pricing and availability

MYIR Smaller STM32MP1 Modules

MYIR offers four main variants of MYC-YA15XC-T STM32MP1 system-on-module with a combination of memory, storage, and temperature range options. But since it’s possible to select STM32MP151, STM32MP153, or STM32MP157, there’s a wider range of options than the table above implies. Pricing starts at $20 per unit for the entry-level module based on STM32MP151, with 256MB RAM, 256MB NAND flash, and a commercial temperature range. The STM32MP151 development board is sold for $69 or $79 depending on the select memory/storage option.

You’ll find more details, including hardware documentation, and the online store to order the module, development board, and accessories on MYIR’s website.
