congatec: quick starter kit for SMARC 2.0

congatec presents the SMARC 2.0 Quick Starter Kit for Intel Atom processors (code name Apollo Lake). The kit comes with congatec’s first SMARC 2.0 module – the conga-SA5 – and everything developers need for the immediate evaluation of the new SMARC 2.0 standard as well as the latest Intel Atom processor generation. Application engineers of connected Industry 4.0 and wireless IoT devices will love the option of the integrated wireless interfaces with standardized antenna connectors on board.

The SMARC 2.0 Quick Starter Kit integrates the conga-SA5, the high-end maximum performance computer module for the low-power class. It features the powerful quad-core Intel Atom x7-E3950 processor with up to 2.0 GHz and Intel Gen 9 graphics with 18 execution units. With 8 GB LPDDR4 RAM, the module also provides latest memory technology. Another highlight is the provision of a pre-certified M.2 communications module for up to 433 Mbit/s WLAN 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth LE and optionally NFC. The starter kit also offers all interfaces provided by the new SMARC 2.0 module. These comprise of dual GbE including hardware-based and therefore especially fast real-time synchronization, MIPI CSI dual cameras, USB 3.0 plus fast 32 GB eMMC 5.0 flash memory and TPM 2.0 on the module.

The conga-SEVAL evaluation carrier board provides a broad range of interfaces including 4x PCIe x1, 1 mini PCIe, 2x USB 3.0, and 4x USB 2.0 for generic extensions. Also provided are  2x RJ45 for Gigabit Ethernet, 4x COM, 1x CAN bus and 12x GPIO. Displays can be connected via dual channel LVDS, eDP, DP and 2x MIPI DSI. Additional storage media are available via a SD/MMC socket and 1x SATA 6G. Digital and analog audio I/Os for I2S and HDA round out the interface offerings.

The Quick Starter Kit is completed by an ATX power supply, the conga-ACA2 MIPI CSI-2 dual camera module, WLAN antenna, LVDS adapter, SATA, USB cables and a cooling solution for the module. On the software side, the congatec starter kit includes board support packages of the conga-SA5 module for the complete Windows 10 IoT family and Linux operating systems. Starting to develop SMARC 2.0 applications couldn’t be made any easier.
