Apalis whitepaper, including a side-by-side comparison with ULP-CoM/SMARC and Qseven

Montag, 28. Januar 2013

There has been dramatic growth in products using ARM™ processors, driven most recently by the expanding smartphone and tablet markets. ARM based solutions are appearing in areas previously reserved for high power x86 based solutions. At the same time, the likes of Intel® and AMD are trying to increase power efficiency in their x86 products in order to compete in areas previously dominated by ARM. In the midst of this, Toradex™ is unveiling a new, independent, computer on module architecture called Apalis.
You can find further details about the Apalis Standard in a whitepaper available at
http://docs.toradex.com/100975-apalis-ulp-com-qseven-smarc-comparison-whitepaper.pdf

The future proof Apalis computer on module family architecture has been developed based on research into different technologies and in close collaboration with our customers.
The gradual integration of interfaces such as PCI-Express, Gigabit Ethernet, SATA and HDMI into the latest SoCs and APs have driven the need for a new computer on module standard. These interfaces are enabling ARM devices to enter application areas such as digital signage and high-end multimedia, previously reserved for higher power, x86 based platforms.
The Apalis T30 module will begin shipping in March 2013 and the full specification is available on the Toradex website at
