SXoM-C5 is one of the world’s first System-on-Modules based on the new SMARC standard to feature CPU and FPGA in one chip.
SXoM-C5 adheres to the SMARC™ standard and is suited for use in a wide variety of projects. The board's core is an Altera Cyclone V SoC (System-on-a-Chip) with a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and an FPGA component with up to 100,000 logic elements. The first applications are pedestrian recognition and advanced driver assistance systems.
SMARC™ is the first global standard released by SGET and defines both the design and the hardware specifications for extremely compact mobile low-power applications. The goal of the Munich-based SGET society, founded in 2012, is to enable developers to react to new developments in the embedded market quickly and flexibly while guaranteeing quality and compatibility of the individual components.
The great number of various interfaces defined by SMARC enables easy integration of SMARC modules in a wide variety of applications. Going even further, the Alternate Function Block (AFB) features free pins that Solectrix can use to realize individual specifications for special applications. Stefan Schütz, one of the company’s managing directors, comments: „SXoM-C5 and SXoM-K7 are only the beginning. We’re excited to be helping shape the future development of embedded technology as a member of SGET.“
