Baseboard for nanoRISC Modules

nanoRISC® is a module concept combining the latest low power RISC controllers and embedded interfaces on a small form factor COM (Computer On Module). Ideally suited for embedded applications, a variety of easy-to-use interfaces are available. The nanoRISC form factor has been created for applications requiring a small form factor and lowest power consumption. nanoRISC modules will be plugged onto an application-specific baseboard. The evaluation platform MSC nanoRISC® MB2 offers a variety of interfaces commonly used in embedded applications such as LAN, USB, UARTs, Audio and Graphics RGB 18/24 Bit and extension connectors for graphics and for general interfaces such as SATA, PCIe, CAN (CPU I/O), Local Bus, I²C and SPI. In addition Touch Controllers for Projected Capacitive Touches (PCT) and for Resistive Touches are provided. An SD Card socket is supported to enhance the usability and functionality of the nanoRISC® motherboard.
