Embedded Module TQMxE39S SMARC-Module with Intel Atom® x5/x7 E3900

Intel Atom® x5/x7 E3900 (“Apollo Lake-I”)

  • Triple Display Support with DP/HDMI (up to 4K UHD) and eDP/LVDS
  • Up to 64 GB eMMC Flash, soldered
  • Dual/Quad Core Processors with up to 2.5 GHz
  • High-Speed by Gigabit Ethernet
  • Especially robust design
  • Protective coating possible
The TQ module TQMxE39S is based on the latest generation of Intel® Atom™, Pentium® and Celeron® processors (code named “Apollo Lake”). It achieves a new level of compute performance, security and media processing performance in an extremely compact form factor. The module corresponds to the modern SGET Standard SMARC 2.0/2.1 (“Smart Mobility ARChitecture”). The TQMxE39S targets small, low power and low cost applications with preferences in the embedded mobile market. Three 4K display outputs powered by the integrated Intel® graphics processor enable applications with impressive user experience.
Immersive 3D processing and greatly increased video encode and playback performance improves high resolution multimedia content. High speed interfaces like Gigabit Ethernet, PCIe, USB 3.0 and 6Gbps SATA ensure high communication bandwidth. SPI, SDIO and serial interfaces extend the communication path to the carrierboard. Onboard eMMC up to 64 GB and the option for Dual-Channel LVDS or native eDP enable flexibility and reduce overall BOM cost.
