Module is designed for graphics-intense IoT applications

At this year’s show, Advantech will introduces the scalable i.MX 8 Qseven module, the ROM-7720.

The NXP i.MX 8 QuadMax Q7 v2.1-compliant computer on module (COM) is designed for graphics-intensive IoT applications. It answers the market needs for graphics computing in IoT edge nodes, says Advantech, which has collaborated with NXP to develop this Qseven module. The COM aims to realise multi-display, human machine interfaces, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), robotic vision, precision advertising systems, and medical image processing.

The ROM-7720 is powered by the i.MX 8 QuadMax processor, a multi-core SoC that is based on the Arm Cortex-A72 and Cortex-A53 processors and the Cortex-M4 big.LITTLE structure. The COM features high-performance computing and low-power processing. Additionally, the dual-core GC7000 GPU delivers high-quality 3D graphics and 4K decoder. The ROM-7720 is designed as a standard Qseven 2.1-compliant platform to ensure that customers benefit from the flexible interface design and improved time-to-market, says Advantech. 

The ROM-7720 supports both Yocto Linux and Android OS, and it has Advantech’s WISE-PaaS/Edgesense built in, providing support for remote monitoring and management (RMM) and over the air (OTA) features to enable updates for IoT and industrial IoT applications.

Advantech says it will continue to co-operate with its Embedded Linux and Android Alliance (ELAA) partners to provide complete ROM-7720 software offerings, including featured OS as well as security and image recognition technologies.

The ROM-7720’s key features include 64-bit LPDDR4 (two/four Gbyte), onboard QSPI flash (256Mbyte), eMMC Flash (eight Gbyte), together with 4K h.265 decoder and HD h.264 encoder.

Founded in 1983, Advantech is a leader in providing trusted, innovative products, services, and solutions. Advantech offers comprehensive system integration, hardware, software, customer-centric design services, embedded systems, automation products, and global logistics support.

The ROM-7720 will be launched in Q4, and visitors to Embedded World can see a live demo at either the NXP stand (Hall 4A – stand 220) or at the Advantech stand.
