Keywords:MSC Technologies  mobile  Qseven  processor  Intel 

MSC Technologies has unleashed the QT-BT Qseven 2.0 computer-on-modules geared to close the gap between the high-end COM Express boards with Intel Core processors and the existing entry level Atom-based Qseven modules. According to the company, the performance/watt optimized Qseven modules are intended for versatile applications in future markets such as mobile and battery systems.

The family has five variants. The Atom E3845 (1.91GHz, 10W TDP) expands the available performance limit by offering quad-core performance on an x86 technology Qseven platform for the first time. The modules with dual-core Atom processors E3827 (1.75GHz, 8W TDP), E3826 (1.45GHz, 6W TDP) and E3825 (1.33GHz, 6W TDP) and the module with E3815 Atom processor (1.46GHz, 5W TDP) with one CPU core for less demanding applications are pin and software compatible. The Intel Gen 7 Graphics offers a high-resolution graphics 3D functionality and supports DirectX 1.1, OpenCL 1.1 and OpenGL 3.2.

MSC Technologies integrates up to 4GB DDR3 DRAM in the modules and implements an optional an error correcting code (ECC) that delivers a high level of data integrity, reliability and system uptime that is ideal for many intelligent systems with demanding high security levels, said the firm. The boards' high reliability is augmented by the processor's virtualization capability and built-in security engine.

The Qseven family offers a range of interfaces including USB 3.0 Host and optional USB 3.0 Device, 3 x PCIe x1 Gen. 2.0, Gbit Ethernet, audio, LPC, I2C, SMBus, SPI Bus and SATA-300. DDI Display Interface for HDMI, DisplayPort and embedded DisplayPort (eDP) and LVDS are available. Optionally, up to 64GB SATA SSD and additional up to 64GB eMMC Flash Disk can be assembled.
