The new SMARC module offers high performance for sophisticated computing-intensive applications, 3D visualisation and a wide range of communication applications. Numerous digital I/Os and serial communication interfaces as well as PWM and SDIO interfaces make the module perfect for industrial applications. The latest processor (4x Arm® Cortex®-A53, 1x Arm® Cortex®-M7) and memory technology (LPDDR4) make it easy and quick to be used for custom board and application developments. The RISC (Reduced Instruction Set Computer) processors of the Arm®-based CPU are the perfect basis for cost-sensitive embedded applications with high energy efficiency combined with high computing and graphics performance.
