MSC Vertriebs announced Qseven Starter Kits that are based on MSC’s Qseven modules (70 x 70mm form factor and the Intel Atom processor). The kits are based on the new 3.5-inch platform board Q7-MB-EP1 and offer a variety of interfaces. The kits feature a Qseven Heatspreader, a ready-to-run Linux installation on USB Flash Stick, and a 12V power supply. Optionally, the evaluation kit is available with a TFT panel and cable kit.
MSC Vertriebs’ MSC Q7-MB-EP1 embedded platform is designed for the development of embedded systems based on a power saving Qseven module. The baseboard is ready-to-use for small and medium production quantities in order to save extensive in-house development. The 3.5″ modules are mounted via a MXM connection on the baseboard. MSC Vertriebs offers three types of the MSC Q7-US15W Qseven module based on an Intel Atom processor varying in main features like CPU performance and number of SATA ports and PCI Express x1 lanes. The scalable computer-on-modules are ideal for mobile, battery-operated, and fanless systems.
