SECO: latest NXP-based solutions for edge computing

SECO has showcased the latest additions to its product range at embedded world. Among the main innovations, there is a strong focus on NXP-based solutions. SECO is investing much effort in the partnership with NXP with both Layerscape LX2160A Multicore Communications Processor and the i.MX 8 Family.

Known for its asymmetric multi-core processing, industrial machine vision, 4K video processing and dedicated real-time cores – the I.MX 8 Family offers a broad range of standard form factors and SBCs.

First and foremost, the Qseven standard is well covered by the Q7-C25 and Q7-C26 Qseven Rel. 2.1 compliant modules. For the former, Q7-C26 exploits the broad scalability granted by the combination of the Qseven form factor with the i.MX 8 Applications Processors. This solution comes in three versions: i.MX 8QuadMax, i.MX 8QuadPlus and i.MX 8Quad. It features an integrated GPU that supports 2 independent displays and is equipped with 1x USB 3.0, CSI camera connector, boot select signal and PCI-e x1 Gen3. The memory consists of a soldered-down LPDDR4-3200. The Q7-C26 is a great solution for biomedical and medical devices as well as for digital signage & infotainment, industrial automation and control, vending, and smart vision.

The Q7-C25, instead, is a Qseven Rel. 2.1 compliant module based on NXP i.MX 8M Applications Processors designed for next-generation embedded systems. This COM mounts an integrated GPU, with support for 2 independent displays. It is well-equipped, with 2x USB 3.0, CSI camera connector, 8x GPIOs, 1x CAN BUS and, the cherry on the top, 2x I2C bus. Finally, the memory consists of a soldered-down DDR4-2400, with 32-bit interface, up to a maximum of 8GB. The fields of application are several, including digital signage & infotainment, home automation, multimedia devices, transportation, and vending.

SECO has also developed a standard solution for next-generation multimedia applications in the SMARC versatile and small form factor, based on NXP i.MX 8M Applications Processors: the SM-C12. Featuring an integrated GPU, with support for 2 independent displays, it comes with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth LE, CSI camera, QuadSPI interface, and 12x GPIOs. What's more, it also features an I2C bus, an SM bus, boot select and power management signals. When it comes to memory, the product mounts a soldered-down LPDDR4-3200, with 32-bit interface, up to 4GB. All things considered, the SM-C12 is suited for scenarios such as digital signage & infotainment, home automation, vending, multimedia devices, and transportation.

The SBC-C43 is an SBC with NXP i.MX 8 Applications Processors in 3.5” form factor, designed to be an industrial Arm solution for IoT edge computing applications. The board features 2x graphics accelerators Vivante GC7000 / XVSX or GC7000Lite / XVSX (QuadPlus and Quad), and in terms of connectivity, not only 2x Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, but also multiple USB ports. When it comes to memory, it mounts a soldered-down LPDDR4. All in all, the SBC-C43 is ideal for biomedical and medical devices, digital signage & infotainment, edge computing, industrial automation, IoT, smart vision, and vending.

Speaking of the 3.5” form factor, SECO also offers the SBC-C20, an SBC with NXP i.MX 8M Applications Processors. It is a new-generation device designed for cost-effective solutions in the multimedia field as well as for IIoT applications. The board mounts a Vivante GC7000Lite GPU and, in terms of connectivity, comes equipped with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth LE 4.2. It also features an M.2 WWAN slot and a microSIM slot for M.2 modem. The memory consists of a soldered-down DDR3L, up to 2GB. The SBC-C20 is appropriate for a vast array of applications, such as edge computing, e-health telecare, digital signage & infotainment, HMI, industrial automation and control, info kiosks, IIoT and portable devices.

But SECO’s jewel in the crown is the SBC-C61, which is based on NXP i.MX 8M Mini Applications Processors. Most notably, SECO has early access to the very same processor - a processor that, by the way, NXP is launching this year at embedded world 2019. It is based on a Heterogeneous Multi-core Processing Architecture for edge node computing and multimedia. GPU-wise, the product mounts a GC320 2D accelerator and a GCNanoUltra 3D accelerator. Another relevant aspect is connectivity. In this regard, the board features opt fast eth, opt Wi-Fi, up to 2x RS-232 or RS-485 or CAN, and opt modems with SIM slot or eSIM. The memory is a soldered on-board LPDDR4-3000 (up to 4GB). Ultimately, the SBC-C61 is ideal for edge computing, Internet of Things applications, multimedia devices and visual computing.
