Kontron: SMARC Evaluation Carrier 2.0 comes with high number of ports

Kontron has introduced the SMARC Evaluation Carrier 2.0 for ultra low power Computer-on-Modules. Facilitating the development of embedded applications based on the SMARC 2.0 platform, it gives users a head start in their system design and flexibility to create individual solutions. The SMARC Evaluation Carrier is based on the current SMARC Design Guide version 2.0, which was developed under significant involvement of Kontron and only recently introduced by the Standardization Group for Embedded Technologies.

The SMARC Evaluation Carrier is the ideal foundation for developing current SMARC-sXAL and future SMARC modules. It comes with an extremely high number of ports: two Gigabit Ethernet ports that enable operation in network and IoT applications; one SD card slot; one mSATA interface; two USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports each, two miniPCIe ports with SIM card support, and two more PCIe ports. The carrier board also offers all ports and interfaces needed for modules based on ARM and x86: three graphic interfaces (Dual Channel LVDS, HDMI, and DP++), I2S audio for ARM-based modules and HDA audio for x86-based modules, as well as two additional MIPI CSI camera interfaces for optimal multimedia application evaluation.
