The SMARC 2.1 module TQMxE40S is available with Intel Atom®, Pentium® and Celeron® processors of the 6th generation (10 nm process technology) and impresses with increased CPU computing power, fast LPDDR4/4x memory up to 16 GByte, Inband ECC and significantly improved performance values in the area of graphics and image processing. Combined with the compact SMARC design (82 mm x 50 mm) and the low power dissipation (4.5 - 12 Watt TDP), the module opens up new possibilities in industrial automation, measurement technology, aviation, medical technology and many other fields of application, especially in the extended temperature range from -40°C to +85°C. Two USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports (2x 10 Gbit/s) as well as four PCIe Gen 3 lanes (8 GT/s), offer a high bandwidth for extensions and additional functions on the carrier board. Two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces provide a powerful network connection for IOT applications. Equipped with the latest Intel graphics processor, 4K screen resolution, impressive 3D video processing as well as significantly increased video encoding/decoding performance are provided.
Virtualization and new functions such as Time Coordinated Computing offer the best conditions for real-time applications and time-synchronous IOT solutions. The optionally available eMMC flash memory (up to 256 GByte) and assembly options for either embedded DisplayPort (eDP) or LVDS offer great flexibility. The integrated board controller supports thermal management, a multi-stage watchdog, "Green ECO-Off" for minimum standby consumption and offers customer-specific configuration options (flexiCFG) for a high degree of flexibility. Combined with Smart Battery functions and the optimized cooling solutions, the TQMxE40S is perfectly suited for mobile applications.
