With only 27mm x 27mm the QS module family has very compact dimensions. They include a complete embedded System on Module with processor, PMIC, RAM and flash memory.

Because of the very dense packaging on the top side, there are no components on the bottom side of the module, cut-outs on the base board are not required. The pin compatible family concept provides all important interfaces needed for embedded designs, e.g. USB, Gigabit-Ethernet, display and many serial interfaces.

 

All signal connections are located at the module edges, allowing easy optical inspection during production. The modules can be assembled by automatic pick & place machines without any mechanical assembly work necessary.

The pin-optimized QS concept enables the use of a simple, cost-effective 2-layer base board.

To support a quick evaluation and project start, a starter kit, with included schematics and bill of materials, is available.

 

Flexibility, high performance and easy integration
