MSC presents first Qseven™ Embedded Module

23 DECEMBER 2008

MSC Vertriebs GmbH presents its first embedded module Q7-US15W in the compact form factor 70 mm x 70 mm based on the open Qseven™ standard. The embedded computing specialist is thereby among the first companies to offer a product compliant with the Qseven™ specification, which was first defined at the beginning of this year. Thanks to its compact dimensions and extremely power saving processor technology, the highly integrated Qseven™ module is specifically designed for mobile, battery-operated applications.
The MSC Q7-US15W computer-on-module integrates a power saving Intel® Atom™ processor Z530/Z510 with up to 1.6 GHz clock frequency and the mobile Intel® System Controller Hub (SCH) US15W. The maximum power dissipation of the Qseven™ module is only 7 W.
The Qseven™ form factor defines an Embedded Application Software Interface (EASI) for the watchdog timer, the I²C bus, a LCD backlight controller, the BIOS user storage area and the temperature control. A wide range of industry standard interfaces – three PCI Express™ x1 and two SATA-2 with up to 200 MB/s as well as eight USB 2.0 ports, a 1000 Base-TX Ethernet interface, a High Definition Audio (HDA) interface and a LPC output – are available for connection of external devices. The Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 500 integrated in the Controller Hub offers 18/24-bit LVDS and SDVO interfaces for up to 1600 x 1200 pixels. The Qseven™ standard uses MXM connector technology, which has been proven a numerous number of times in laptop computers.
