Sentor Monitoring & Control Systems i7000 Controller

                                                     Sentor i7000

The i7000 is an excellent high-performance single board computer based on Texas Instruments’ 1GHz Sitara AM3358 ARM Cortex-A8 processor. It is driven by a tiny CPU Module which has integrated AM3358 processor, DDR3, Nand Flash and brought out most of the features and signals of the AM3358 CPU through expansion pins. The CPU Module is in combination with a carrier board to extend and provide more features through headers and connectors.
