Getting Started

FIXME: Writing of this new Page(s)/Documentation is in progress. Most parts of the information can already be found on our wiki-pages. The intention is to help new customers. In case of question please ask.

This chapter of the Wiki shall ease getting started with our products and evaluation kits.

Details on hardware like datasheets, 3D-drawings etc. are found at: Hardware
Details on software like Board-Support-Packages, Software-Development-Kits etc. is organized by operating system:

Products

The first question would be what you would like to buy from us.
Our main products are Processor Modules, often also called SOM (System On Module). These come with different well maintained bootloaders and operating systems.
For these modules we offer Baseboards or even complete Panels with or without housing.
Since development, support and production is in-house, you can order design-services for custom modules, baseboards or panels and driver-development.
Keith & Koep GmbH itself does not offer application-development, but of course can assist in case of issues and bugs or with some demo-applications.
Now that Keith & Koep GmbH is part of the AF HMI GmbH (2020), we can supply complete solutions with our partner companies Garz & Fricke GmbH and e-GITS. As Qt experts e-GITS can supply tailor-made software solution to our customers.

Modules

We offer easy to integrate modules, which only need a single power supply to operate. Pins not needed are usually left unconnected.
Today there are two form-factors:

We try to keep modules compatible to the maximum possible with previous ones, while at the same time migrating to new standards & interfaces.
This allows our customers to upgrade their products with little or even no changes to their hardware.
The great benefit of modules is, that we take care of the supply-chain and modifications in hardware or software due to EOL (End-Of-Life) or PCN (Product-Change-Notifications) of the different chips. Though this happens usually seamless to our customers, it i.e. requires approval for new chips or chip-revisions like RAM etc.

The Trizeps is our standard with the longest history. It is incorporated in almost any product category you can think of: From small battery-powered handhelds to big special-vehicle machinery, airplanes, ships and buoys, measurement equipment, medical devices, vending machines or HMI for industrial and home automation.
It uses a SODIMM200 connector and has got an extra board-to-board connector for some additional high-speed signals.
There are two different configurations for on-board storage. Either a Micro-SD-card slot or eMMC. In many cases eMMC is faster than uSD. The good thing about uSD is the easy way of initial software deployment and possibility to replace the card, plus the option for our customers to decide which storage quality to select. eMMC (and uSD-cards) use managed NAND-flash that may wear out over time and usage.
The Myon is a new module standard designed for small devices. Though we see customers use Myon in big devices too and also Trizeps in small ones.

The main difference is, that Trizeps typical has 3.3V I/Os and Myon 1.8V I/Os. The Trizeps got more interfaces, like ethernet, CAN, ADC, FPGA and in case of Myon II also an additional on-board Wifi/BT option. Of course you may decide to use Myon and add missing peripherals on your baseboard or get a version of Trizeps without that peripheral mounted.

Baseboards

We offer different Baseboards for our modules. Most have been designed to be used in mass-prodcution and to act as evaluation board as well. The schematic to these boards can serve as reference design for your own baseboard. When finished with your design, you can ask for a design review of your schematic.
For Trizeps we currently recommend the pConXS, because of the number of interfaces.
For Myon we recommend the ConXM (formerly: dragonBase). In some situations we would suggest the i-PAN M7 CoverLens for evaluation of Myon instead.
