The advantage of Single Board Computers (SBC) is, that they can be applied without a base board, and therefore they are especially suited for quick "Time-To-Market". armStoneA9r2 uses an i.MX 6Solo/DualLite/QuadPlus ARM Cortex-A9 processor (3D, 2D, OpenGL, OpenVG).
A highlight of this CPU is its long availability for more than 15 years (Freescale Product Longevity Program).
armStoneA9r2 comes with up to 4GByte DDR3 SDRAM, up to 1GByte SLC Flash, and additional 32GB eMMC. Special features compared to armStoneA9 are Wifi, Bluetooth and camera interface.
Further interfaces are Gigabit Ethernet, 4x USB 2.0 Host, USB 2.0 Device, 2x CAN, I²C, 2x SPI, Audio, SATA, PCIe and 5x serial interfaces.
For display control, 2-channel LVDS and DVI are available simultaneously (with different content also).
It is also possible to connect a resistive or capacitive touch panel via I²C.
A supply voltage of 5V causes a power consumption of about 4W, so the armStoneA9r2 can be applied without a fan or cooling device.
armStoneA9r2 allows an unprecedented combination of high-end computer graphic at simultaneously extremely low power loss.
