New SMARC 2.1 computer on module eDM-SMX-EL


DATA MODUL is expanding its SMARC product family in the embedded sector and presents the eDM-SMX-EL, a compact, powerful SMARC 2.1 module that supports the new Intel Atom® x6000E, Pentium® and Celeron® N & J series processor generation (codename Elkhart Lake).

Thanks to the improved graphics performance of the processor, the new module can support three independent displays with a resolution of up to 4Kp60, making it ideal for a variety of graphics-intensive low-power IoT applications.

Compared to its predecessor, the new credit-card-sized eDM-SMX-EL increases CPU performance by more than 40 per cent, graphics performance by a factor of two and, with up to four cores, offers an excellent performance/watt ratio (4.5W - 12W TDP). 

In addition to the usual controller interfaces such as CAN, the module has a dual GbE with TSN to ensure real-time capable device communication. Furthermore, there is a large increase in data throughput thanks to the PCIe Gen3 (8 GT/s) and USB 3.1 Gen2 (10 Gbit/s) interfaces. 

Also noteworthy is the up to 16 GByte LPDDR4X working memory with a speed of 4267 MT/s. With the In-Band ECC feature, which can be configured in the BIOS, no additional memory is required; instead, part of the RAM is used for this purpose. This means that the customer can dispense additional memory and save costs.

"The new eDM-SMX-EL module is aimed at system developers who are looking for SoC-based Computer-On-Modules with particularly low power consumption in a miniature format," explains Richard Pinnow, Head of Product Management for Embedded Solutions at DATA MODUL "The small footprint, high flexibility and cost-effectiveness of our SMARC 2.1 module will be a game changer for many industries and applications in the field of edge computing.

The module is designed to operate in the full industrial temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. This, combined with its low height and high performance, allows the eDM-SMX-EL to be used in many multimedia and IoT applications.

What’s more: The module has very low maintenance requirements thanks to its extremely long service life of 10 years even in 24/7 continuous operation. For a quick design start and the shortest possible time-to-market, the module can also be combined with the SMARC Carrier Board eDM-CB-SM-IPCS recently introduced by DATA MODUL. The board has a V-by-One interface, which means that high-resolution displays with a resolution of up to 4k can be operated.
