SMARCBoard EX is based on the DMP’s Vortex 86EX SoC. It supplements the product range of x86 COMs in the lower requirement spectrum with a power consumption of approx. 2 Watt. It’s the perfect alternative to ARM microcontroller based modules, where low power at low performance meets the x86 architecture and the requirement for a cost saving design.

The SMARC™ form factor offers standardized small form factor system solutions based on an established standard with a long term scalability in the application.

This module offers a wide spectrum of interfaces fitting industrial applications. Typical applications for SMARCBoard EX are Smart Nodes, data loggers, small control units with CAN-Interface or outdoor applications with harsh environmental requirements.

The unique possibility using x86 architecture on this form factor allows the use of a wide spectrum of standardized software, like OS, drivers for peripheral components and existing applications. In the fast moving x86 world the 86EX SoC of DMP is an exception with a total availability of >7 years. Due to the long term availability this module fits the corresponding products with longer life cycles.
