MSC Q7-MB-EP5

/SimpleFlex, Application-Ready Embedded Platform Qseven Rev. 2.0

SimpleFlex is the intelligent combination of a standard Computer-On-Module with a standard carrier board. It combines the advantages of Standard SBC and Custom SBC by choosing the COM from a huge portfolio of CPU and memory configuration.

This is the basis for innovative solutions in HMI systems, complex display systems, IoT gateways, professional infotainment systems, object recognition systems, transportation applications, medical devices, gaming systems and building automation, among others.

The ready-to-use platform is cost-efficiently adapted with the selected interfaces and assembled in-house at full-automatic production lines. For the customization, more than 30 pre-validated interface combinations are available. SimpleFlex is therefore best suited for series production with large quantities.

The Qseven slot of the board is compliant with Qseven rev. 2.0 but can support all other Qseven revisions as well.

The EP5 is not suited for low-volume applications. The MSC Q7-MB-EP6 (x86) and the MSC Q7-MB-EP4-001 (ARM) are suggested for evaluation and use in low-volume Qseven applications.
