Description

The design of the MSC Q7-NT2 module is based on NVIDIA´s new Tegra 290 CPU offering ARM class lower power consumption, dual core computing performance and excellent graphics combined with a high degree of functional integration.

The MSC Q7-NT2 CPU Module provides an unprecedented combination of high-end computing performance and low power consumption with a wide temperature range. It incorporates a high performance NVIDIA Tegra 290 ARM Cortex A9 CPU (Dual Core) with up to 1 GHz each, Flash memory, DDR2 SDRAM and an extensive set of interface controllers. The module provides the standard Qseven interface, allowing simple integration with Qseven baseboards.

For evaluation and design-in of the Q7-NT2 modules, MSC provides a development platform, target platform and a starter kit. The MSC Q7-NT2 module is supported by NVIDIA’s Vibrante Linux kernel.
