Kontron SMARC-sA3874i - Low-Power SMARC Module based on Cortex &trade A8

Low Powered but High Performance


Featuring an extremely low TDP (Thermal Design Power), the Kontron SMARC-sA3874i is well-suited for space-constrained, fanless and harsh environment applications. Offering single core ARM® Cortex™ A8 technology performance based on Texas Instrument's AM3874 Sitara™ ARM® processors, Kontron's latest SMARC module delivers the computing power required by the diverse range of smart devices being designed today in an exceptionally small 82 mm x 50 mm footprint.

The Kontron SMARC-sA3874i module supports an extended operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C and expands the scalable Computer-on-Module building block model to a broader range of SFF systems that must operate in harsh environmental conditions such as those in the military, industrial automation/HMI, digital signage and medical markets. Support for Android, Linux, WEC7, and additionally a variety of real-time operating systems on project request, enables embedded OEMs to leverage an active ecosystem of development partners.

The new Kontron SMARC-sA3874i Computer-on-Module family is available with the Texas Instruments Sitara™ single core Cortex™-A8 technology-based microprocessors (MPUs) for the extended temperature range that offer performance up to 800 MHz. Kontron's SMARC modules support 3D graphics acceleration and HD video processing. Dual independent displays are possible via parallel 18/24 bit LCD or 18/24 bit single-channel LVDS and HDMI. Additionally, the module supports a parallel camera interface input. The modules provide a x1 Gen 2 PCI Express lane and interface flexibility with 4-bit SDIO and SDMMC storage, SPI x2, I2S x4, I2C x4 for general purpose and CAN Bus x 2. Networking is supported by a 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet port.
