Development of Community Security Panel



About the Client

The client is a market leader in hardware and networking sector.

Business need

The client envisaged to develop a community security panel (Suite Panel) based on Atmel’s ARM 9 micro processor AT91SAM9263 and running on embedded Linux and the sensor interface board for the panel.They wanted a powerful security panel with built-in Ethernet for communication with a central security desk, an LCD for alarm and status display, secured login and a keypad with pre-defined hotkey functions. The client also wanted to implement voice communication over Ethernet using same cable infrastructure for voice and data.

Solution delivered

  • The security panel is designed around Atmel’s ARM 9 processor AT91SAM9263.The product consists of mainly the CPU board and the I/O board.
  • The main board with the Atmel CPU has following interfaces
  • Memory-SDRAM and Nand Flash, Serial and SPI interfaces, Character and graphic LCD, Audio Codec interface, keypad, speaker and Microphone, 10/100 Ethernet.
  • The I/O board has sensor interfaces for interfacing 8 zones to the security panel and relays for alarming the 8 zones.The sensor logic detects not only the sensor activation but also sensor tamper making it a fool-proof security pane.The panel operates on TimeSys Linux 2.6 Kernel.

Business benefits

  • Centralized control on security
  • Embedded Linux Compatibility

Technology stack

  • ARM 9 AT91SAM9263
  • Ethernet, SPI, LCD
  • Voice over Ethernet
  • Audio codec
  • Linux and C
  • PADS and Orcad
