Solectrix joins SGET and presents SXoM-C5 and SXoM-K7, the world’s first System-on-Modules based on the new SMARC standard to feature CPU and FPGA in one chip.
In a world full of possibilities, standards inspire cooperation and innovation. Thus, Nuremberg’s embedded specialists Solectrix has decided to become a member of SGET e.V., the „Standardization Group for Embedded Technologies“. As experts for high-performance image processing and especially compact embedded systems, Solectrix GmbH now offers the world’s first System-on-Modules (SOMs) based on the Smart Mobility ARChitecture (SMARC™) to feature CPU and FPGA in one chip.
The two new modules to join the Solectrix System-on-Module family, SXoM-C5 and SXoM-K7, adhere to the SMARC™ standard and are suited for use in a wide variety of projects. The first applications currently in development for SXoM-C5 are pedestrian recognition and advanced driver assistance systems. The even more powerful SXoM-K7 will be used fort he processing of 4K video data. More SMARC modules will follow.
The goal of the Munich-based SGET society, founded in 2012 and now counting 50 members, 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 first global standard released by SGET is SMARC, which defines both the design and the hardware specifications for extremely compact mobile low-power applications.
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.“
