Advantech announces latest Qseven module for multimedia and industry
Advantech’s ROM-7510 Qseven module is designed for accelerated multimedia and industrial communications in advanced IoT applications, says the company. It is powered by Texas Instruments’ AM5728, consisting of dual Arm Cortex-A15 microprocessors and dual TI C66x digital signal processors (DSPs). These, says Advantech, enables high computing processing capability, accelerated multimedia, and industrial communications.
The ROM-7510 computer on module complies with standard Qseven 2.0 and 2.1 form factors. Its interfaces also support a range of connections. Potential applications are machine vision, human machine interfaces and medical imaging, proposes Advantech.
Using TI’s newest AM5728 processor, the ROM-7510 delivers up to 1.5GHz of computing power. The module also delivers high-level analytics and real-time computation with the AM5758’s integrated C66x DSPs and dual Arm Cortex-M4 cores. The ROM-7510’s multimedia performance is achieved with its 1080p60 video accelerator and HD video playback for multiple displays.
The ROM-7510 builds on the standard 70 x 70mm Qseven form factor, making it easy to integrate into space-constrained systems, says Advantech. It is also compliant with both the Qseven 2.0 and 2.1 spec, to ease migration to updated systems.
The ROM-7510 features multiple I/Os, namely one LVDS, one HDMI, one USB 2.0 OTG, four USB 2.0 HOST, one USB 3.0, two UART, one CAN, one SATA, two I2C, one I2S, two PCIE x1, and one LAN, for a range of connections for data handling, networking, and peripheral support.
A corresponding carrier board, the ROM-DB7502, makes evaluation of ROM-7510 easy and efficient, adds Advantech.
The ROM-7510 supports both Yocto 4.1 (kernel 4.4.19, QT-5.6.1) and Android 6.0 (kernel 4.4). The module is supplied with Advantech’s WISE-PaaS/RMM and WISE-PaaS/OTA software for remote monitoring and management with over-the-air updates. Relevant technical documentation, reference design guides, and after-service support are all provided to assist with the implementation of the ROM-7510 and the development of new applications on this module.
