Advantech, a leading embedded computing solutions provider, is happy to announce the launch of its first SMARC module: the SOM-2569. SMARC (Smart Mobility Architecture) is a versatile small form factor computer module targeting applications that require low power consumption, the flexibility to upgrade computing performance, and effective budget control in the system development process. Together with bundled the WISE-PaaS/DeviceOn software, SMARC modules can help end customers with operations management and ease maintenance.
The SOM-2569 SMARC module features Intel® Atom™ E3900, Pentium™ and Celeron™ N Series processors. Its offers a small size — 82mm x 50mm — and supports up to three displays simultaneously. On top of offering multi-display, it also supports several I/O, such as SATA, USB3.0/2.0, COM port, SMBus, and I2C.
There are three key features of the SOM-2569:
- 2 LAN controllers and an onboard Wi-Fi module
- TPM and secure boot for enhanced security
- onboard design for all key components (e.g. memory, eMMC) for maximum reliability
All these features help ensure that the SOM-2569 is highly suitable for automation applications.
Wi-Fi and Dual LAN Controllers: Connectivity Made More Flexible Than Ever
Connected devices are the fundamental elements of modern smart factories. SOM-2569 is integrated with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth onboard, and the dual 1000base-T interfaces to meet both wireless and cable connectivity requirements. With Wi-Fi and Bluetooth in the onboard module, SOM-2569 is compliant with IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac PCIe Wi-Fi & Bluetooth 4.2 and RF certification. Through its rigorous design and testing processes, Advantech not only offers better wireless signal integrity and compatibility, but also save time for system integration.Moreover, SOM-2569 includes two LAN controllers that support two RJ45 ports. The combo design provides the flexibility in various factory applications where isolated network domains are necessary for security and reliability reasons. For example, when the wireless LAN connects to an outside network and the wired LAN can connect to two different local area networks simultaneously.
