Embedded Carrierboard MB-SMARC-2 SMARC 2.0/2.1 Carrierboard

  • Compatible with short and large SMARC 2.0/2.1 modules
  • Dual GbE connector for MIPI CSI camera expansion card
  • USB type C
The SMARC Mini-ITX Mainboard (Carrier Board) MB-SMARC-2 in combination with a standard SMARC 2.0/2.1 module forms a very compact hardware kit, which thanks to its modular design can be used as a freely scalable embedded PC platform, designed for both x86 and Arm® architecture.
The PC system can thus - with uniform interfaces and mechanical dimensions - easily be adapted to the requirements of the application.
