MSC Q7-BW

Intel® Atom™ / Pentium® / Celeron® SOC N3000

The MSC Q7-BW module is based on Intel‘s multi-core system-on-chip (SOC) Atom generation (“Braswell”) that integrates next generation Intel processor core, graphics, memory, and I/O interfaces into one solution. Based on 14nm processor technology this multi-core processor provides outstanding computing and graphics performance and is more power efficient compared to its predecessors.

The new MSC Q7-BW brings triple independent display support, DirectX 11.1, fast DDR3L-1600 memory and USB 3.0 on a compact, power saving and cost-efficient Qseven Rev. 2.0 compliant module.

Different SOCs with dual- and quad-core processors are supported by this design. Next to an extensive set of interfaces and features, the MSC Q7-BW optionally offers hardware based security compliant to the requirements of TCG (Trusted Computing Group).

For evaluation and design-in of the MSC Q7-BW module, MSC provides suitable Qseven Rev. 2.0 platform boards. A complete, ready-to-run Starterkit is also available.
