Further benefits of this native industrial-grade platform include hardware-based real-time and hypervisor support along with broad scalability as well as resistance against harsh environments and extended temperature ranges. All these features make the SMARC 2.0 module meet the recent performance and feature set needs for low power embedded, industrial and IoT applications as well as the new mobility sector.

The new SMARC 2.0 modules with NXP i.MX8 processors, hardware based virtualization and resource partitioning are of great interest for a wide range of stationary and mobile industrial applications including real-time robotics and motion controls. Since the modules are qualified for the extended ambient temperature range from -40°C to +85°C, they can also be used in fleet systems for commercial vehicles or infotainment applications in cabs, busses and trains as well as all the new electric and autonomous vehicles.

The new conga-SMX8 modules feature up to 8 cores (2x A72 + 4x A53 + 2x M4F), up to 8 GByte of LPDDR4 MLC or pseudo SLC memory and up to 64 GByte of non-volatile memory on the module. The extraordinary interface set includes 2x GbE including optional IEEE1588 compliant precision clock synchronization, up to 6x USB including 1x USB 3.1, up to 2x PCIe Gen 3.0, 1x SATA 3.0, 2x CAN bus, 4x UART as well as an optional onboard Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and BLE. Up to 3 displays can be connected via HDMI 2.0 with HDCP 2.2, 2x LVDS and 1x eDP 1.4.

For video cameras, the modules support 2 MIPI CSI-2 video inputs. The new NXP i.MX8 based SMARC 2.0 modules come as application-ready super components including U-Boot and complete Board Support Packages for Linux, Yocto and Android.

The new i.MX8 based SMARC 2.0 Computer-on-Modules are complemented by numerous add-on services offered by congatec, reducing the complexity of the integration while accelerating the design-in time for fastest time-to-market. Major premium service pillars are the personal design-in support available for each OEM implementation as well as the individually selectable next-level support of the Technical Solutions Center.

This team of specialists addresses all customized needs - from requirements engineering support and boot loader configuration with extended OS support to test, validation and debugging services. ARM services from congatec are characterized by high quality and personal care for the most simplified use of embedded computer technologies. Customers benefit from fast and efficient design-in of their products as 'plug & play' is more efficient and cost saving than 'trial & error'.
