The PSMC-M101 model series (82x50mm), is based on Intel®’s latest 14nm Atom™, Celeron® and Pentium® processors (codenamed Apollo Lake). The new Intel® Atom™ processor E39xx product family integrates the Intel® Gen 9 3D graphics engine with up to 18 EUs (Execution Units) that improves the performance and supports 4K Codec Decode & Encode. In additional to improved graphics capability, the new PSMC-M101 SMARC 2.0 module series is designed with 2400MT/s speed LPDDR4 up to 8GB, and added with a stable power management for applications in the automation and transportation fields.
The PSMC-M101 is also embedded with Infineon’s OPTIGA™ TRUST IC which is designed to protect embedded systems from unauthorized accessories, replacement parts or disposables. With the unique Infineon data authentication feature, a field system with Portwell PSMC-M101 module inside is capable of offering protection against unauthorized re-use or re-provisioning of original parts. Also together with SGeT newest improved and particularly rich feature set on SMARC 2.0 specification, it is believed that the credit card-sized module will offer major advancements in technology and performance soon to replace previous SMARC 1.1 based designs.
The SMARC 2.0 based PSMC-M101 supports up to 8GB of LPDDR4 (2400MT/s) RAM. In addition to supporting Linux® and Windows® 10 like the other modules, the PSMC-M101 also supports Android™, Microsoft® Windows® IoT Core, and VxWorks® 7. And despite the supposed lack of eMMC compatibility in SMARC 2.0, the module supports up to 64GB of eMMC 5.0.
The multimedia features on PSMC-M101 include dual-channel LVDS (up to 1920 x 1200 @60Hz), which can be swapped out for eDP, DisplayPort 1.2 (up to 4096 x 2160 pixels) and HDMI 1.4b (up to 3840 x 2160), as well as 2x MIPI-CSI camera interfaces.
The PSMC-M101 is further equipped with 2x USB 3.0, 6x USB 2.0(1x OTG), 1x SDIO3.0, 1x SATA 3, and up to 4x PCIe Gen2 lanes. Also onboard are 5x I2C, 2x SPI, 4x UART, 12x GPIO, and HD audio featuring an integrated audio DSP with Intel® Smart Sound Technology. The module includes Portwell’s Board Controller and ACPI 5.0 power management, and can handle industrial -40 to 85°C temperatures.
