congatec announces support for SMARC 2.0 specification

June 30, 2016  congatec – a technology company for embedded computer modules, single board computers (SBCs) and embedded design and manufacturing (EDM) services – has announced its support of the SMARC 2.0 specification, which was released by the Standardization Group for Embedded Technologies e.V. (SGET) just a few days ago. This technology adaption extends congatec’s Computer-on-Module portfolio to include a solution which is positioned between Qseven and COM Express. First congatec SMARC 2.0 modules as well as carrier boards and starter kits including extensive software, driver and BIOS support will be available in August.

congatec’s support of the standard is no surprise for insiders, as congatec played a major role within the SGET in developing the SMARC 2.0 specification. The new specification heralds a milestone in embedded Computer-on-Module technology and is especially designed for particularly multimedia oriented and IoT-connected small systems.

SMARC 2.0 offers numerous serial IOs as well as IoT, network and video interfaces and is thus destined for a range of multimedia and graphics-oriented IoT applications. SMARC is positioned between the low-power standard Qseven for deeply embedded systems and the feature-rich COM Express standard for high performance embedded designs, which even include edge and fog servers.
