About Stephanie Guimera

The Silicon Motion Osprey Visual IoT provides a product-ready platform for connected display devices requiring small form factor and low power consumption. A multitude of smart infrastructure devices can be created with the dual full HD display capability of the SM750 embedded graphics coupled with the reliable Ferri-eMMC storage solution.

The platform provides a robust set of standard I/O and interfaces such as Ethernet, USB Host, USB Client, UART, SPI, I2C, and GPIOs. The SM750 embedded graphics enables multiple displays, and Ferri-eMMC provides best in class performance with industry compliance to eMMC/JEDEC 4.5.

The Osprey IoT platform design kit comes with reference board, schematics, layout files, data sheets, and application notes for SM750 and Ferri-eMMC. SM750 drivers and DDK are also included.
