The Qseven™ open specification ( is a module concept to bring PCI Express and other high speed serial technologies like SATA, USB 2.0 and LVDS on a small form factor COM (Computer On Module). The EP3 platform offers also the new CAN interface defined in the Qseven specification rev.1.2 on a pinrow. An optional transceiver is available on a 9-pin header for easy integration. This makes the EP3 platform especially useful for the MSC Q7-TCTC product supporting the CAN feature on the CPU module.
