TQ Embedded TQMa117xL SOM

The TQMa117xL SOM is a good exampleTQMa117xL SOM

Strong, efficient computing with dual ARM real-time processing,  security, video interfaces and fast IO, running at about 1 watt and in a footprint about 1/5th the size of a credit card!

For cost-effective solutions where real-time processing is desired and low power is a requirement, this module with security and camera/display/Ethernet/USB communications is a great choice.

TQ offers both the SOM and an SBC with the SOM installed, both ready for integration into industrial-strength applications. The SBC offers connectivity for Power-Over-Ethernet, a generous supply of standard interface connectors along with other IO - including ADC, UART, reset, power, and debug options.

Applications include:

Medical: Equipment HMI and controls, telehealth modules, bed system/transport controls, surveillance monitors

Smart Home: HMI applications, smart thermostats, appliances, gateways, internet radio, call systems

Building Automation: A/C controls, thermostats, lighting building control, access control, building call systems

Industrial Automation: HMI applications, Industrial controls, multi-axis motor/actuator controls, scanners

MBa117xL SBC Technical Details

The Single Board Computer (SBC) is based on the embedded module TQMa117xL, where the processor i.MX RT1170 an Arm® Cortex®-M7 from NXP is used. All relevant interfaces integrated into the CPU have been implemented on the MBa117xL for industrial usage. Due to the numerous interfaces and the small size of this SBC its use in different applications is possible without the need for a special design.
