Amendment of the Qseven® portfolio for secure, high-performance applications on networked end devices
Augsburg, Germany February 8, 2019 – Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), announces the new Qseven-Q7AMX8X module. It is characterized by its low power consumption and, thanks to the powerful NXP i.MX8X processor in dual-core and quad-core configuration respectively, it is ideally suited as a basis for networked terminals in industrial applications. The new Qseven® module is designed for use in the extended temperature range from -40°C to +85°C and is therefore also suitable for use in machines and devices that have to withstand harsh industrial environments. The new Qseven-Q7AMX8X will be available in three standard versions: with the QuadX+, the DualX+ and the DualX processor, up to four Cortex® A35 cores, clocked up to 1.2 GHz. An additional Cortex®-M4 core can be used for smaller management tasks in the system that previously required a separate controller. The new Qseven® module will be on display at embedded world 2019 (February 26 to 29 in Nuremberg, Germany) at Kontron's booth in Hall 1, 478.
The new module in the Qseven® form factor with the dimensions 70x70mm offers the possibility to operate two displays. An HDMI and a dual-channel LVDS interface are available for this purpose. The equipment also includes up to three GB LPDDR4 memory, one Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) port, up to three PCI Express (PCIe) and five USB 2.0 ports as well as one USB 3.0 port. Between 2 and 64GB eMMC 5.0 flash memory serve as mass storage. In addition, the Qseven-Q7AMX8X module has a SDIO card slot and a serial interface. With numerous additional interfaces, the module can be used according to individual requirements, including one I2S, one I2C, one SPI, two MIPI CSI, eight GPIO and one CAN interface. Uboot serves as boot loader, a board support package for Yocto Linux is available.
The Qseven-Q7AMX8X module optionally supports the Kontron APPROTECT security solution powered by Wibu-Systems. A security chip from Wibu-Systems, embedded as a fixed part of the system, in combination with a software framework specially developed for this chip, prevents reverse engineering and copying attempts from the user's own IP address as well as from a third-party software. Kontron APPROTECT Licensing also allows individual application functions, e.g. for demo purposes, to be available only for a time based trial version or based on time base, by counting executions.
