M-LINE - Single Board Computer Novasom Industries designed for powerful multimedia applications

The M-line was created for those advanced multimedia applications

Where the computing power and the presence of specific HW accelerators, are needed as much as the advanced connectivity to various kinds of displays while maintaining the classic low-level industrial connectivity.

 

The newest member of the M-Line is the Novasom M7Plus (M7+). As the M7, it’s based on the Rockchip RK3328, a 4X A53 processor. These boards (M7 and M7+) can drive UHD (4k) displays, have USB 3&2, HDMI interface and support Linux and Android OS. Are specifically designed to replace immediately and easily the Pi3 with an Industrial object, from a HW and a SW point of view, thanks to the RASPMOOD approach. On Novasom M7 and M7+ your application SW written in Armbian (Debian) can be mounted without any SW change and the mechanical holes and strip pin are the same and in the same position of the Pi3. In addition, the M7+, has the HDMI available also on FFC, a dedicated connector with RS485, a second strip with replica of USB 2/3 and can be powered also via µUSB

Another board from M-Line is the Novasom M11. Based on the new Intel Apollo Lake x5, 6th generation of Atom CPU with Microsoft Windows 10 and Linux, are designed for the typical digital signage applications that require heavy Full HD movies or UHD (4k) to be managed with high fluidity by specific heavy SW or, often, multiple displays.

These boards (with an HW H265 decoder on board) are rugged, practically cold while working, also in extended range temperature, and with 10 years of availability, because we use only industrial components. Are equipped with our unique dual power input for redundancy and the UPS manager with battery, you can work 24/7 without any problem (a must with Windows based systems).

The market asks also for Linux, Android OS and Windows 10 IoT so we developed the Novasom M8 to respond to these “entry level” requirements, even the most severe, we have equipped the M-line entry level with the strongest Designed for Android performing CPU for graphics purposes on the market today (Qualcomm Snapdragon), and defined our SBC to become a small, easily integrated, low level, capable product.

modulo M7Plus vs Others

Main differences and why choose Novasom M7PLUS
SDK – NOVAEMBED™

SDK-NOVAEMBED - software

 

An instrument through a graphical interface, allows you to configure the linux kernel in a simple and intuitive thus optimizing the performance of the card.

The latest of the M family is the M7Plus where performance, is added beyond the M8.
This board has excellent graphics capabilities (4K) that has high flexibility in connecting displays and other units. It also has USB2 interfaces, USB3, RS485, Audio, and much more. Last but not least, it is designed according to the RASPMOOD design.

M-CUSTOM

Our single board computers are designed to be adaptable to the needs of the customers and their production processes. Their design allows us to populate and depopulate the Novasom boards (Tailor-Made Solution) thus achieving the desired configuration and reducing costs.
If Tailor-made Solution is not enough, it is possible to Customize a standard board. We are so skilled and organized in doing this that we have a dedicated article named “SBC Customization” with a fixed price that includes the engineering service to customize one Novasom SBC plus one run of 5 Alpha prototypes.

Just call us

We have the solution for you
