The latest product of the M line is Novasom M9 which joins the well-established M7 and M7Plus. This SBC is based on the prestige Rockchip 3399. This CPU offers the new Cortex A72’s performance and the multicore Quad A53 used to speed-up parallelism and lower consumption when needed, with one of the strongest GPU available on the market: the Mali-T860MP4. This board has been minded to offer the latest and strongest video input-output capability, while minding to our RASPMOODapproach with USB extender and low level GPIO to assure the compatibility with the famous community board’s started application.
The other products which use a Rockchip CPU are the Novasom M7 and M7Plus (M7+). Both are based on the Rockchip RK3328, a 4X A53 processor. These boards (M7 and M7+) can drive UHD (4k) displays, have USB 3&2, HDMI interface and support Linuxand Android OS. Are specifically designed to replace immediately and easily the Pi3 with an Industrial object, from a HW and a SW point of view, thanks to the RASPMOOD approach. On Novasom M7 and M7+ your application SW written in Armbian (Debian) can be mounted without any SW change and the mechanical holes and strip pin are the same and in the same position of the Pi3. In addition, the M7+, has a dedicated connector with RS485, a second strip with replica of USB 2/3 and can be powered also via µUSB.
Another board from M-Line is the Novasom M11. Based on the new Intel Apollo Lake x5, 6th generation of Atom CPU with Microsoft Windows 10 and Linux, are designed for the typical digital signage applications that require heavy Full HD movies or UHD (4k) to be managed with high fluidity by specific heavy SW or, often, multiple displays.
These boards (with an HW H265 decoder on board) are rugged, practically cold while working, also in extended range temperature, and with 10 years of availability, because we use only industrial components. Are equipped with our unique dual power input for redundancy and the UPS manager with battery, you can work 24/7 without any problem (a must with Windows based systems).
The market asks also for Linux, Android OS and Windows 10 IoT so we developed the Novasom M8 to respond to these “entry level” requirements, even the most severe, we have equipped the M-line entry level with the strongest Designed for Android performing CPU for graphics purposes on the market today (Qualcomm Snapdragon), and defined our SBC to become a small, easily integrated, low level, capable product.
