ADLINK Technology, Inc. has introduced a new SMARC form factor computer-on-module, the LEC-BTS, running a single, dual, or quad core Intel Atom processor E3800 series system-on-chip from 1.46 to 1.91 GHz, with up to 4GB DDR3L memory at 1066/1333 MHz. The ADLINK LEC-BTS module delivers top-of-the-line performance with efficient power consumption targeting a new generation of mobile applications requiring industrial-grade stability and reliability.
The SMARC (Smart Mobility ARChitecture) form factor is a versatile ultra-small-footprint computer-on-module defined predominantly by ADLINK and Kontron and approved by the SGET (Standardization Group for Embedded Technology) consortium. SMARC is an open and global standard for new-generation embedded applications, featuring low power, low cost and high performance.
The ADLINK LEC-BTS is a short size 82 mm x 50 mm SMARC module. The low power envelope of the SMARC form factor (5 W to 10 W depending on number of cores and usage) allows for passive cooling and enables smaller, quieter, and cleaner systems. Although small in size, the LEC-BTS provides a wide variety of I/O interfaces to enable development of new and innovative applications, including both PC-type interfaces and modern ARM-type interfaces.
The LEC-BTS is designed for portable or small stationary systems, with application scenarios ranging from industrial automation and medical testing and measurement to transportation and digital signage, and is especially suited for systems requiring high performance graphics in mobile applications. LEC-BTS modules can operate in an extremely wide temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. Standard temperature SKUs supporting 0°C to 60°C operation are also available.
The ADLINK LEC-BTS is a building block for the Intel IoT Platform framework with Wind River and McAfee software integration. Paired with ADLINK’s device-to-cloud platform SEMA (Smart Embedded Management Agent) Cloud that enables remote monitoring control and management, the LEC-BTS is designed for developing IoT devices with a secure connection to the cloud.
