ADLINK Technology Inc. announces a new SMARC form factor computer-on-module running on Intel x86 processors targeting a new generation of mobile applications.
Using a single, dual, or quad core Intel Atom processor E3800 series system-on-chip from 1.3 to 2.2 GHz with soldered memory up to 4GB DDR3L at 1066/1333 MHz including ECC, the ADLINK LEC-BT module delivers top-of-the-line performance in efficient power use ensuring industrial-grade stability and reliability in mobile applications.
The SMARC (Smart Mobility ARChitecture) is a versatile ultra small footprint computer-on-module defined predominantly by ADLINK and Kontron and approved by the SGET (Standardization Group for Embedded Technology) Consortium. Considered an open and global standard for new generation embedded applications featuring low power, low cost and high performance, SMARC draws advantages from both legacy x86 and ARM-based designs.
ADLINK’s LEC-BT module is recommended for portable or small stationary systems with applications ranging from industrial automation, medical testing and measurement, to transportation and digital signage, especially for systems requiring high graphic performance in mobile applications.
The ADLINK LEC-BT is a full size 82mm x 80mm module with onboard eMMC flash and ECC memory support. SMARC’s low power 5W-10W design allows for passive heat dissipation and enables smaller, quieter and cleaner systems. Despite its small form factor, the LEC-BT module provides a variety of I/O interfaces for developing innovative new applications, including both legacy PC interfaces such as PCIe, SATA and HDMI, and modern ARM-like interfaces such as SPI, I2C and I2S. GbE is provided for Ethernet connection, and interfaces are also included for a MIPI CSI compliant camera, USB2.0 and 3.0 (host and client), GPIO, and serial ports.
ADLINK’s proven Extreme Rugged technology enables the LEC-BT modules to operate in an extremely wide temperature range from -40°C to +85°C.
ADLINK’s latest SMARC form factor module, the LEC-BT is certified by Intel for Intel Gateway Solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) using Windriver and McAfee software integration. Paired with ADLINK’s device-to-cloud platform SEMA Cloud (Smart Embedded Management Agent) that enables remote monitoring control and management, the LEC-BT is an ideal building block for developing IoT devices with a secure interconnection to the cloud.
