Tuesday, 07 August, 2018 | Supplied by: Congatec Australia Pty Ltd



congatec has launched the conga-SMX8, the company’s first SMARC 2.0 computer-on-module based on the 64-bit NXP i.MX8 multicore ARM processor family.

The ARM Cortex-A53/A72-based module is suitable for ultralow-power embedded computer designs, offering an ARM processor with good performance, flexible graphics and numerous embedded features for all kinds of IIoT applications. It provides high-performance multicore computing along with extended graphics capabilities for up to three independent 1080p displays or a single 4K screen.

Further benefits of the native industrial-grade platform include hardware-based real-time and hypervisor support along with broad scalability, as well as resistance against harsh environments and extended temperature ranges. All these features make the module meet the recent performance and feature set needs for low-power embedded, industrial and IoT applications as well as the mobility sector.

The SMARC 2.0 modules with NXP i.MX8 processors, hardware-based virtualisation and resource partitioning are suitable for a range of stationary and mobile industrial applications, including real-time robotics and motion controls. Since the modules are qualified for the extended ambient temperature range from -40 to +85°C, they can also be used in fleet systems for commercial vehicles or infotainment applications in cabs, buses and trains as well as electric and autonomous vehicles.

The modules are application-ready subsystems that come with a comprehensive ecosystem such as ready-to-go boot loader implementation, pre-qualified Linux and Android BSPs and fully featured evaluation carrier boards, as well as personal integration support and a broad range of individually selectable technical services to simplify integration of the processor.
