Theobroma Systems, an Austrian based engineering services and embedded systems solutions company, has been designing Allwinner based systems-on-module compliant with Micro Qseven standard for a while, starting with Allwinner A31 A31-μQ7 module in 2015. The company has now launched A64-μQ7 system-on-module powered by Allwinner A64 quad core Cortex A53 processor.
A64-μQ7 module specifications:
- SoC – Allwinner A64 quad core ARM Cortex A53 processor with Mali-400MP2 GPU
- System Memory – Up to 2GB DDR3 on module
- Storage – Up to 64GB eMMC flash, Up to 16MB SPI NOR flash
- Display I/F (via edge connector) – HDMI 1.4 up to 4K @ 30 Hz, MIPI DSI up to 1920×1200 @ 60 Hz
- Connectivity – 10/100/1000 Mbps PHY
- USB – 7x USB 2.0 ports including one dual-role port
- Other I/Os – On-module communication offload controller for CAN, UART, 8x GPIO, I2S, I2C, SMBus, SPI, FAN
- Security – Optional Global Platform 2.2.1 compliant JavaCard 2.2 environment, and EAL4-certified smartcard controller
- Power – 5V; AXP803 PMIC
- Dimensions – 70mm x 40mm (μQseven form factor)
- Temperature Range – Commercial: 0ºC to 85ºC; Extended range available on request
The company provides support for Linux 4.x, Debian 8, and Android 6 for the module. There’s no word about a baseboard / carrier board for the SoM, but since it should be mechanically and electrically compatible with previous micro Qseven module (that’s what standards are for), and we do know a Mini-ITX baseboard is available for previous Theobroma modules.
The price has not been disclosed publicly. A few more details may be found on the company’s A64-uQ7 product page.
