Embedded computing solutions for IIoT

26 June 2019 Computer/Embedded Technology

TQ-Embedded introduced its latest processor technologies with QorIQ Layerscape, i.MX8 and AM57xx to SMARC as the link between ARM and x86 and solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

The TQMLS1028AL module, based on a 64-bit dual Cortex-A72-powered LS1028A from NXP Semiconductors, features a four-port TSN (time-sensitive networking) switch integrated into the CPU. In addition, this module offers two additional gigabit Ethernet interfaces and GPU-supported graphics that can drive displays with up to 4K resolution.

With a small size of 55 x 44 mm, TQ has developed the module for strict real-time requirements. In addition, up to two PCIe and two USB 3.0 interfaces can be used for fast data communication. Depending on requirements, a wide range of intelligent HMI controllers up to energy-efficient routers, gateways and data-loggers can be implemented.

TQ will also release its modules for the i.MX8 CPU series from NXP. A highlight in this regard is the TQMa8Mx module based on the i.MX8M, which is available with three different Cortex-A53 CPU variants. As usual, all interfaces are made available to the user. On a size of only 55 x 36 mm the user can choose between several graphic interfaces with display support up to 4K, all audio functions as well as USB 3.0 and PCIe.

Among other things, this module offers access to two digital camera interfaces (MIPI-CSI/ four lanes) for direct connection of camera chips and an integrated Cortex-M4 controller to support the main CPU for implementing security functions. It is therefore well suited for developing systems with a focus on audio and video applications.

With the MBox-Advanced, TQ offers a compact and reliable embedded PC for the field of smart manufacturing. With its four TSN-capable gigabit Ethernet ports and two USB 3.0 ports, it is particularly suitable as a communication node on the factory floor, combined with machine vision applications for optical inspection and robotics.

Equipped with the powerful Intel Atom quad-core processor E3950 (Apollo Lake-I), additional tasks such as high-resolution visualisation, operation and local data-logging can be covered simultaneously. Additional interfaces such as a 4K UHD-capable DisplayPort output, USB 2.0 and RS-232 are available for this purpose
