New Arbor Qseven CPU Module with Single-chip, Quad-core Intel® Celeron® N2930 and Atom™ Processor E3800 Family

ARBOR Technology, a leading IPC provider of embedded computing solutions, announces the immediate availability of the EmQ-i2301 Qseven module based on the Intel® Atom™ processor E3800 family and Celeron® processor N2930. All modules are fitted with ceramic capacitors making them ideal for industrial mobile applications in harsh environments. New features include an ample L2 cache, which can be shared by multiple cores, and a much faster Intel HD graphics unit compared with the previous generation. This turns new applications into visual experiences.
The modules support Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) set, which is more relevant than ever in practical application. This allows developers to offload particularly compute-intensive packaging and encryption routines of the well-known cryptographic algorithm AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) into hardware, thereby enabling high performance encryption without putting a significant burden on the CPU cores.

The EmQ-i2301 comes in some different Intel Celeron & Atom processor-based versions (formerly codenamed “Bay Trail”) for high scalability. It ranges from the entry-level dual-core Intel® Atom™ processor E3825 with 1.33 GHz and a low power consumption of 6 watts, up to the quad-core Intel® Atom™ processor E3845 with 1.91 GHz and 10 watts.

The Qseven modules are each equipped with 2GB of DDR3L memory and up to 16GB eMMC 4.5 for mass storage. Depending on which processor and memory type are used, versions with 4GB & 8GB of RAM are available. The integrated graphics are significantly more powerful than the previous model and support DirectX 11, OpenGL 3, OpenCL 1.2 and high-performance, flexible hardware decoding to decode even multiple high-resolution full HD videos in parallel.

Up to 2,560 x 1,600 pixels with DisplayPort and 1,920 x 1,200 pixels with HDMI are natively supported in the processor. It is also possible to connect up to two independent display interfaces via 24-bit LVDS and DisplayPort at DDI interface. The reserved signal for Analog RGB is available.

The modules achieve eight USB 2.0 ports with 480Mb/s Hi-Speed data transmission. Three PCI Express 2.0 lanes and two SATA interfaces with up to 3Gb/s enable fast and flexible system extensions. The Intel® Ethernet Controller i210 guarantees the best software compatibility. Completing the feature set are: MIPI camera interface, I2C bus, LPC bus for easy integration of legacy I/O interfaces and Intel® High Definition Audio for Atom™ processor E3800 family.
The following CPU variants are supported by the module:
