Features

Low Profile

The no-connector BGA style reduces profile to 3.7mm and eliminates the need for connectors. This allows you to solder down the SOM just like any other component in your Bill of Materials.

High Speed Interface Support

Dual PCIe and USB 3.0 are available at the 501-pin interconnect.

Pre-certified connectivity

Pass intentional radiated emissions with the pre-certified WiFi/Bluetooth interface onboard.

Advanced Multimedia Capabilities

Dual camera support as well as options for display capabilities including MIPI DSI and HDMI. Need LVDS? Use a validated PHYTEC reference circuit to add to your system.
