The SoM-212ES is an ultra compact SoM Carrier/Socket board with an optional 4.3 inch WQVGA (480 x 272) TFT color LCD and a resistive touch screen. The dimensions of the SoM-212 are 4.8″ by 3.0″, about the same dimensions as that of popular touch cell phones. The SoM-212ES is small enough to fit in a 2U rack enclosure. This versatile SoM Carrier/Socket board is ideal for evaluation and early development work. This Carrier is designed to work with all EMAC 200-pin SODIMM type SoMs. Note: The SoM-212ES is specifically designed for SoMs with Video & USB capability.
The SoM-212ES provides access to much of the SoM’s I/O through on-board connectors as well as a number of additional I/O expansion blocks such as Video, Touchscreen, Ethernet and micro SD flash disk. Full schematics of the SoM-212ES are provided giving the user a solid base with which to design their own SoM Carrier. Schematics of the SoM-212ES are included on the CD provided with the Carrier board.
Although a good deal of customers will want a Carrier that is unique and is designed specifically for their application, the SoM-212ES when coupled with a SoM-9G45 SODIMM SoM makes for a powerful User Interface Contol System with USB and Ethernet capabilities. This allows the user to gather data and respond with Control commands via the Internet.
When a unique custom board is required, the amount of design work required is greatly minimized by the SoM approach. The custom Carrier designer does not have to worry about the processor, memory, and standard I/O functions and can concentrate on the I/O, connectors and dimensional aspects required for the application.
In situations where a custom Carrier is required but the customer does not have the capability to design such a board in-house, EMAC’s Custom to Order Services (COS) can be utilized. Using COS the customer can select from a library of standard I/O blocks. These blocks can be put together quickly into a form-factor of the customer’s choosing, providing prototypes in as little as 30 days.
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.
