ARM / x86 Multi-Display Platform
Highly integrated and scalable elektronics platform for x86 and ARM-based Multi-Display Applications and Touch-HMIs
The surge in market penetration of tablet PCs in the consumer market has led to operating units with multimedia features in a number of market segments being seen as the basic prerequisite for the success of the respective devices. The MX-Q7-MM2 board addresses these areas of application.
Example configuration: ARM-based multi-display application with three 12 "displays and MIPI camera:
The following video shows the MX-Q7-MM2 equipped with a freescale i.MX6 based conga-QMX6 Qseven module in a multi-display configuration with 3 TFT displays (12 ", 1280x800) and MIPI camera under Linux / YOCTO:
Example configuration: x86-based multi-touch application:
MX-Q7-MM2 platform equipped with Intel Atom based Qseven module (conga-QA3) and 7 "multitouch display, Windows 10 application:
The MX-Q7-MM2 already offers a large number of peripheral interfaces in its basic configuration and can be adapted to the needs of a specific requirement if required using configuration options. In addition, an expansion slot is available, which can be used to implement additional features that go beyond the functional area of the board. The MX-Q7-MM2 is very flat to enable a slim product design.
The MX-Q7-MM2 is designed for use with inexpensive, standardized CPU modules in accordance with the Qseven 2.0 industry standard. This makes it possible to adapt the system as best as possible to the requirements of the application and the required operating system. The CPU options in the x86 area are processors from the current Intel Atom product families and in the ARM area, various derivatives of the freescale i.MX and NVIDIA Tegra product families. On the operating system side, the current Microsoft Windows 10 operating systems versions (standard and embedded versions) as well as Linux and Android are supported.
The MX-Q7-MM2 can be operated with an input voltage of 24V and offers a variety of peripheral interfaces such as Ethernet, USB, CAN, RS-485, I2C, UART, LVDS, 24V digital I / O, and audio. An RFID / NFC reader is available on the system board especially for the User ID area.
There are also assembly options such as digital display interface, up to 6 additional USB channels, an expansion slot for mSATA SSD storage media, an additional micro SD card slot, an integrated stereo audio amplifier, ambient light sensor for brightness control of the display backlighting. When fully configured, the MX-Q7-MM2 supports the operation of up to 3 independent, high-resolution displays and audio support.
Industrial Grade Connectors
In addition to the usual connectors for Ethernet, USB and display interface, industry-standard Molex connectors with locking function are used for the power supply and I / O interfaces.
Functional extensions in the course of the product life cycle
In the course of a product's life cycle, it is often necessary to add new functions to it, e.g. To map market trends or to create new product variants. A module slot is provided for this, through which a variety of functions can be implemented by plugging in an additional module without changing the system board.
