The new MSC SM2S-ALN module features the Intel Atom® processors x7000E Series, Intel® Core ™i3 processor and Intel® Processors N Series (codenamed “Alderlake N”). The CPU architecture is based on the same Efficient-cores and Intel® UHD graphics driven by Xe architecture as the 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors, thus easing up application migration across Intel® CPU performance and power ranges. With support for up to eight processor cores, the module fits to a wide range of applications including point-of-sales terminals, digital signage controllers, HMI solutions and medical equipment.
The new MSC SM2S-ALN offers triple independent display support with a maximum of 4k resolution, fast LPDDR5 memory with up to 16GB and optional IBECC capabilities, eMMC 5.1, USB 3.1 and PCIe Gen3 on a power saving and cost-efficient SMARC 2.1.1 module.
Different SOCs with dual-, quad- and eight-core processors are supported by this design. In addition to an extensive set of interfaces and features, the MSC SM2S-ALN offers 2 Gigabit Ethernet based on Intel® i226 and supports up to 2.5GbE bandwidth.
For evaluation and design-in of the MSC SM2S-ALN module, Avnet Embedded provides a suitable SMARC 2.1.1 development platform. A complete, ready-to-run Starterkit is also available.
