The SMARC 2.1 module TQMxE41S is available with a wide variety of processors in the power range 6 W to 15 W TDP. It combines high CPU and graphics performance (incl. increased AI acceleration) with a variety of high-speed interfaces such as 2x 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet, 4x PCIe, USB 3.2 and SATA in a very compact design. The high system performance is supported by the latest LPDDR5-4800 memory and up to 256 GB Industrial iNAND eMMC. Many other interfaces ensure easy connection of numerous peripheral components.
The new generation of CPU microarchitecture and the integrated Intel UHD Graphics Gen12 with up to 32 execution units, both from the 12th generation Intel Core processors, set new standards in the areas of CPU single-thread/multi-thread performance as well as multimedia and AI. For the first time in this performance segment, AVX256 and advanced AI instruction sets (VNNI) are also supported, providing fast AI inferencing and media transcoding. Together with the extended security features including TPM 2.0 support, the module is particularly well suited for applications in healthcare, IoT, industry/robotics, retail and video & conferencing.
