Embedded computing and display solutions provider Review Display Systems (RDS) have announced the introduction of a new SMARC module from Kontron, a leading global provider of embedded computing technology. The low power SMARC module enables a versatile and powerful computing solution for smart device and digital signage applications.
The Kontron SMARC-fA3399 provides the ideal platform for the efficient development of computing intensive smart devices in non-critical applications such as digital signage, point-of-sale (POS) and point-of-information (POI). A fully integrated Arm Mali-T860MP4 GPU provides high performance 2D and 3D graphics capability. A wide range of displays can be easily connected via LVDS, DisplayPort and HDMI.
The SMARC-fA3399 supports up to 8GB of integrated LPDDR4 SDRAM memory and up to 64GB of on-board eMMC 5.1 flash memory. Other integrated peripherals and interfaces include 2 x Gigabit Ethernet ports as well as 3 x PCIe, 6 x USB 2.0 and 1 x USB 3.0.
The SMARC module offers great levels of versatility and can be specifically configured depending on application requirements. Options for selecting memory and storage capacity, graphics output, PCIe configuration options and LAN controller options will modify the interfaces available at the SMARC 2.1 connector pinout.
The robust SMARC-fA3399 modules offers a highly cost-effective, high-performance computing solution and complies with the new SMARC 2.1 module standard with compact external dimensions of 82mm (h) x 80mm (w). The module supports an extended commercial operating temperature range of -20°C to +60°C which enables use in a wide range of application environments.
