新聞: 揚名電子宣布支持SMARC工業標準

新聞發表時間: 2016年06月26日

Embedian today announced to support newly defined Computer-on-Module (COM) standard for their upcoming ultra low-power embedded architecture platform family. Supporting the new COM standard marks a significant milestone after first innovatively introducing MXM golden finger connector into industrial application. Customers will benefit from the highest design security and longevity of their ARM- and SoC-based applications.

"It is very beneficial for both EMBEDIAN and our customers to be able to enter the predominantly proprietary ARM market with a standardization initiative for embedded building blocks to design customer-specific systems on a proven and scalable module platform." Norris Lee, Sales Director at EMBEDIAN added. "This is ideal for custom specific designs based on a proven and scalable module platform and will save customers significant time and cost. The proof of concept will be validated extremely quickly by OEM implementations. And those implementations are expected to arrive in sufficient volumes to create a defacto standard. This will be very beneficial to all technology followers due to availability and cost effectiveness being guaranteed from the start."

An overview of the SMARC specification
The new standard for ultra low-power COMs was developed specifically for new modules with ARM and SoC processors and is characterized by the extremely flat build of its form factor. It uses a 314-pin connector that has a construction height of just 4.3 millimeters (the MXM 3.0) with an optimized ARM/SoC pin-out definition. This connection method allows robust and cost-effective designs that have an extremely thin construction height. The version of this connector that is shock-and vibration-resistant serves the needs of applications that will need to function reliably under rough environmental conditions. Furthermore, the standard integrates dedicated interfaces for the latest ARM and SOC processors. This means that not only LVDS, 24-bit RGB and HDMI are supported but embedded DisplayPort for future designs is supported as well. As another first for the industry, dedicated camera interfaces are being incorporated into the standard. OEMs benefit from minimized design effort and bill of material costs. Two different module sizes are specified, in order to offer a high level of flexibility regarding different mechanical requirements: a short module measuring 82 mm x 50 mm and a full-size module measuring 82 mm x 80 mm. Additionally, SMARC will cover all other known requirements analog to other module standards, so that the SMARC standard is already completely mature for the market.
