SMARC Evaluation Carrier 2.1

The SMARC Evaluation carrier 2.1 is designed to allow embedded application developers to get up and running quickly on the SMARC modular platform, giving them a head start on the total system design. Simply select the SMARC module best suited for your application needs, install the module and you are ready to get started.

The SMARC Evaluation Carrier is compliant with the SMARC module 2.1.1  specification and supports a broad range of interface options dedicated for low power applications including 2x Gigabit Ethernet support, SD-card socket, USB 2.0 and 2x 3.1 (USB-C and Type A), mPCIe, PCIe and many more.

The implementation of LVDS, HDMI and DP++ allows multimedia applications, that have never been possible on SMARC before. The intelligent audio implementation allows also HDA on X86 and I2S on ARM platforms to be used on the same audio connectors. MIPI CSI camera support as well as 14 GPIOs increase the flexibility for highly sophisticated applications.
