The SMARC-FiMX7 is a versatile small form factor Computer-On-Module with NXP i.MX7 processor and offers scalability with single and dual core processors. The dual core ARM Cortex-A7 runs a peak frequency of 1GHz, while the single core ARM Cortex-M4 has a peak frequency of 200MHz.
The single core Cortex-A7 has a peak frequency of 800MHz, while the single core Cortex-M4 runs at 200MHz. Both the SoCs support asymmetric or heterogeneous multi-core processing, in which the real time applications can run on the Cortex-M4, while the user applications are taken care by Cortex-A7. SMARC-FiMX7 is also the first SMARC 2.0 specification compliant module from Embedian.
The SMARC 2.0 specification comes with a number of feature rich improvements offering major advances in both technology and performance so that SMARC 2.0 will soon replace previous SMARC 1.1 designs. Developers and OEMs will benefit from a completely new module standard with more pre-integrated functionality making carrier board design easier and more efficient.
Embedian announced that it will also be launching SMARC 2.0 starter kits (EVK-STD-CARRIER-S20) and free revision checks for existing SMARC 1.1 carrier board designs will also be made available to order on March 15th, 2017.
The SMARC-FiMX7 module offers single- or dual-channel LVDS LCD interface, dual Gigabit Ethernet with AVB, SDHC, PCIe, USB OTG 2.0, four UARTs support and many peripheral interfaces in a cost effective, low power, miniature package. Embedian’s SMARC-FiMX7 thin and robust design makes it an ideal building block for reliable system design.
All modules support Linux Yocto BSP, Ubuntu 14.04/16.04 and Android 6.0.1. For a simplified entry into the SMARC 2.0 world, Embedian will soon also offer a quick starter kit as well as a comprehensive range of accessories from March 15th 2017.
The SMARC-FiMX7 and the quick starter kit will be shown on 2017 Embedded World Nuremberg, Germany at Embedian’s booth Hall3 3-643 from March 14-16, 2-17.
