SMARC 2.0 industry standard for computer-on-modules
SMARC 2.0 is a new standard released by the Standardization Group for Embedded Technologies (SGET). With numerous graphics, camera, sound, networking and wireless interfaces, the SMARC 2.0 CPU modules are ideal for mobile IoT-connected multimedia platforms and many other low-power graphics-intensive applications. Thus, SMARC 2.0 positions itself exactly between the two already well established module standards Qseven and COM Express.
SMARC 2.0 modules from congatec offer a rich choice of graphics, camera, sound, network and (optional) WiFI and Bluetooth wireless interfaces. congatec SMARC 2.0 computer-on-modules like e.g. the conga-SA5 represent a SOM (system-on-module) which encapsulate a complete low power x86 based core design. SMARC 2.0 modules offer embedded system developers a complete, off-the-shelf, credit-card sized embedded computing core that is ideal for IoT connected multimedia platforms and many other graphics-intensive low-power applications.
