MSC SM2S-AL

Intel® Atom™ E3900 / Pentium® / Celeron® SOC

The new MSC SM2S-AL module features Intel's next-generation low-power System-on-Chip (SOC) for the Internet of Things. The Intel Atom Processor E3900 series integrates 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 SM2S-AL offers triple independent display support, DirectX 12, fast LPDDR4 memory, eMMC and USB 3.0 on a power saving and cost-efficient SMARC 2.0 Short Size module.

Different SOCs with dual- and quad-core processors are supported by this design. In addition to an extensive set of interfaces and features, the MSC SM2S-AL optionally offers hardware based security compliant to the requirements of TCG (Trusted Computing Group).

For evaluation and design-in of the MSC SM2S-AL module, MSC provides a suitable SMARC 2.0 development platform. A complete, ready-to-run Starterkit is also available
