Ismaning, Bavaria, Germany, 2021/06/10 - New SMARC module excels in terms of price-performance ratio and creates the perfect foundation for computing-intensive AI-applications at the point-of-sale - Kontron.com.
Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), launches the new SMARC module fA3399 with Arm® processor Rockchip RK3399K. In the benchmark of Arm®-based modules, the new Kontron module has the highest performance compared to its price. Six processor cores from an energy-saving dual-core Arm® Cortex®- A72 and a Quad Cortex®-A53 as well as an Arm® Mali-T860MP4 GPU, provide high graphics performance for 2D and 3D displays. A dedicated Open Source Community is continuously expanding the application spectrum and driving innovation.
The new Rockchip CPU offers a platform for non-critical applications around the areas of POS/POI. Whether digital signage, retail or kiosk - wherever Artificial Intelligence is used to enable target group-specific communication with the end customer, the SMARC-fA3399 module creates the perfect basis for new applications. Price pressure and speed are important drivers here, because when it comes to placing new content close to the customer, the time-to-market factor is crucial.
The robust SMARC-fA3399 is convincing in terms of both price and performance and complies with the new SMARC 2.1 module standard with dimensions of 82 x 80 mm. It is designed for an extended temperature range from - 20 °C to + 60 °C and is therefore highly versatile when it comes to its deployment. Features include 2GB or 4GB LPDDR4 SDRAM memory down and 8 - 64GB eMMC onboard flash; displays can be connected via LVDS, DP and HDMI. Other interfaces include 2x GbE ports as well as 3x PCIe, 6x USB 2.0 and 1x USB 3.0.
