Qseven® - the mobile COM definition

Targeting next generation ultra mobile embedded processors built using 45 nm technology, the Qseven® format complements the low power and small size of these processors. By exploiting the small form factor of the industry's latest processors, the Qseven® format others high performance computing power, delivered in a module measuring only 70x70 mm&sup

Freedom

Qseven® allows for the use of non x86 processor architectures. It supports the low power mobile ARM processor architecture. Customers have the freedom to use all kinds of Qseven® modules without the need to change the carrier board.

Mobile Applications

Qseven® is unlike previous Computer-On- Modules (COM) standards due to its primary focus being directed towards mobile and ultra mobile applications.

Low Power

Qseven® is defined for a maximum power consumption of 12 Watts. It is designed to be operated by single 5 Volt DC power and provides all additional signals for battery management. This simple power requirement allows for small mobile solutions powered by compact two cell batteries.

Connector

Unlike most previous module standards, Qseven® does not require an expensive boardto- board connector. Instead, it utilizes a very affordable MXM card slot with 230 pins in a 0.5 mm configuration.

Legacy Free

Qseven® is a legacy free standard focused on high speed serial interfaces such as PCI Express® and Serial ATA. Qseven® omits support for legacy interfaces like EIDE and PCI, in order to provide ideal support for today's, as well as future, CPU's and chipsets.

Compact Size

The module's dimensions are a mere 70x70mm&sup. This means it can be easily integrated into size constricted systems.

Slim Design

Compared to COM Express®, Qseven® enables slimmer mechanical housings.
