The new, highly scalable SMARC 2.0 module SMARC-sXAL covers the entire range of Intel's latest IoT-ready embedded processors. This includes the Intel Atom™ processor E3900 series, as well as Intel Pentium® processor N4200 and Intel Celeron® processor N3350. The SMARC-sXAL module is available in both dual-core and quad-core configurations.
The new Intel Gen 9 HD low-power graphics integrated on the SoC with up to 18 Execution Units provides 4K encode/decode algorithms including HEVC, H.264, VP8/VP9 and MVC.
With state-of-the-art image processing and graphics capabilities, the SMARC-sXAL provides extensive real-time computing power in an energy-efficient and standardized Computer-on-Module form factor. Users benefit from a significantly improved computing performance, an impressive performance-per-watt ratio and the long-term availability inherent in all Kontron embedded solutions.
Furthermore an added advantage for developers is the integration of Kontron’s standard hardware-based embedded Security Solution Approtect. Kontron is the first embedded computing supplier to offer full security protection embedded in its COM and motherboard offerings.
The board is available in 2 different designs. SMARC-sXAL (E2) uses DDR3L memory and is the perfect choice, when ECC is necessary. SMARC-sXAL4 (E2) is equipped with LPDDR4 memory and has the ability to connect 2x GB Ethernet.
