Congatec Qseven Starter Kit – The Quickest Way to ARM-Based Designs

San Diego, California -- November 27, 2012 -- congatec , a leading manufacturer of embedded computer modules, announces a new Qseven Starter Kit providing developers with a complete package to rapidly prototype embedded systems for ARM designs.

Thanks to their compact size and extremely low power, Qseven embedded computer modules based on ARM architectures are an ideal solution for virtually any low-power or ultra-mobile embedded PC application. To minimize the development costs of such systems, congatec has combined all the necessary components in a comprehensive starter kit. The kit’s centrepiece is the new conga-QMX6 Qseven module, based on the Freescale i.MX6 ARM Cortex A9 processor. The module has an ingenious 3D-capable high-end HD graphics interface with extremely low power consumption. The integrated graphics core is designed for multimedia applications featuring a video processing unit (VPU), 2D and 3D graphics (GPU2D/3D), four shaders with up to 200 MT/s (million triangles/second) plus dual stream with 1080p/720p. The available graphics interfaces include HDMI v1.4 and 18/24 bit dual channel LVDS with a resolution of up to 1920x1200 (WUXGA).

The starter kit also includes the flexible Qseven evaluation carrier board conga-QEVAL and a matching 12V power adapter. With the supplied cable set, it takes just minutes to build a compact demo system. The conga-QEVAL is easy to integrate and offers multiple interfaces including five USB ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, HDMI, 18/24 bit LVDS, and a PCI Express socket. For the connection of mass storage devices 1x SATA and SD card are integrated on the baseboard. The Qseven module itself provides a microSD socket and as an optional extra, eight gigabytes of soldered solid state drive (eMMC) for robust applications.

The included microSD card features a boot loader with pre-installed Ubuntu Linux so that the system can be started immediately.  Alternatively, Android or Windows Embedded Compact 7 will be available in the near future. For customers interested in customization, congatec has an established network of partners to provide consulting and implementation services.

With the comprehensive congatec Qseven Starter Kit, the evaluation process of the design-in phase is accelerated, enabling faster time-to-market.

As announced last week, the board support packages for Windows Embedded and Linux are provided and supported in close cooperation with congatec’s software partner Adeneo Embedded. Combining many years of software experience with congatec’s hardware expertise makes an ideal platform for successful customer projects.
