At Embedded World 2018, Advantech will introduce its new computer-on-module, the ROM-7720, which is designed for graphics-intensive IoT applications. Jointly developed by Advantech and NXP, the module aims at multi-display human-machine interfaces, advanced driver assistance systems, robotic vision, precision advertising systems, and medical image processing.
The NXP i.MX 8 QuadMax Q7 v2.1-compliant module is well-suited for graphics computing in IoT edge nodes.
The module features 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, featuring high-performance computing and low-power processing.
A dual-core GC7000 GPU delivers high-quality 3D graphics and 4K decoder.
A standard Qseven 2.1-complaint platform helps customers to benefit from the flexibile interface design and improved time-to-market.
The module supports Yocto Linux and Android OS, and it has Advantech’s WISE-PaaS/Edgesense built in, providing support for RMM and OTA features, thus enabling remote monitoring and management and over-the-air updates for IoT and industrial IoT applications.
The company also intends to cooperate 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. This will foster the customers’ adoption of the ROM-7720.
The ROM-7720 will be launched in 2018/Q4.
