The SMARC-sXBTi Computer-on-Modules has been developed to comply with the SGET specification and is equipped with Intel® Atom™ processor E3800 series and up to 8 GB RAM, optional with ECC. They support the extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, measure only 82mm x 50mm and have an especially low-profile design thanks to the use of edge card connectors. Nevertheless, there is still enough space for up a 64GB on-board SSD to store OS and application data. A highlight of the pin-out is MIPI-compliant serial camera interface (MIPI CSI = Mobile Industry Processor Interface Camera Serial Interface). The powerful Intel® Gen 7 Graphics are carried out via HDMI 1.4 with up to 2560×1600 and 60 Hz and LVDS (optional eDP) to the display. Further interfaces include 1x GbE LAN via Intel® Ethernet Controller I210, 1x USB 3.0 and 2x USB 2.0, amongst others. Customer-specific extensions can be implemented via 2 SDIO and 3 PCIe x1 lanes with 5GT/s.
The SMARC™ standard was developed especially for new modules with ARM- and SOC-processors and is characterized by the extremely flat build of its form factor. It is based on the MXM 3.0 connector with 314 pins and a construction height of just 4.3 millimeters and it thus allows robust and flatly constructed designs with a cost-effective card edge connector. The connector is also available in a shock- and vibration-resistant version for rough environmental conditions. Furthermore, the standard integrates dedicated interfaces for the latest ARM and SOC processors which not only means LVDS, 24-bit RGB and HDMI support but also support of embedded DisplayPort for future designs. In addition, and for the first time, dedicated camera interfaces are being incorporated into a COM standard. OEMs profit from minimized design effort and bill of material costs. SMARC™ defines two different module sizes in order to offer a high level of flexibility regarding different mechanical requirements: a short modules measuring 82 mm x 50 mm and a full-size module measuring 82 mm x 80 mm.

EMAC is a global leader in system on module and carrier board embedded systems. The System on Module (SoM) is an ideal alternative to custom engineering. With the SoM approach you get the best of aspects of both buying an Off-The-Shelf Embedded Single Board Computer (SBC) and a Custom Engineered solution. With Off-The-Shelf embedded components such as a generic carrier board and SOM module, it is possible to start development on your software applications before the custom carrier board is complete; thus offering a reduced time to market for your system. A System on Module (SoM) is comprised of a small processor module with CPU bus accessibility and standard I/O functionality. The SoM module does not have any connectorization and is designed to be plugged into a Carrier Board.
