SXoM-K7 is Solectrix' new System-on-Modules based on the updated SMARC™ 2.0 standard, featuring CPU and FPGA in one chip.
SXoM-K7 adheres to the SMARC™ 2.0 standard and is suited for use in a wide variety of projects. The board's core is an Xilinx Zynq Z-7035/45 SoC (System-on-a-Chip) with a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and a Kintex-7 FPGA component with up to 350,000 logic elements. Example applications would be pedestrian recognition and advanced driver assistance systems.
SMARC™ 2.0 is an update of the first global standard released by SGET (Standardization Group for Embedded Technologies e.V.) 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 2.0 enables easy integration of SMARC modules in a wide variety of applications. For SXoM, for instance, the GPIO lines were used to realize additional high-speed transceivers.
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.“
