S-LINE - Linux based industrial Single Board Computer Novasom Industries

Novasom Industries S-line represents a family of Industrial Embedded Computers

designed for critical applications, based respectively on Solo (S6), Dual Lite (S7), Quad (S8) and Quad Plus (S9) core ARM Cortex-A9 on NXP i.MX6 CPU with up to 4GB of 64bit DDR3 memory and 32GB eMMC flash.

Available options are the connector for expansion and an embedded  Wi-Fi/BT chip on board with micro SMA connector for external antenna.

Novasom Industries S-line boards are not only powerful Single Board Computers, industrial, robust and supplied with a lot of rugged expansion connectors, they are made with a circuital choice that leaves you free to do your own selection for PCI express bus, input or output ad UART or I2C and SPI.

The idea behind the Novasom Industries S-Line is to leave customer free to do his own choice to solve their problems. For example, a UART left free on a connector can become any kind of serial line you want. An RS232 is what it is. Same game with the model of connector. Nobody can predict your needs.

So we leave expansion really available everywhere, from an electrical or mechanical point of view.

The board is really full of tricks like the fixing holes for the board/expansion-piggy/carrier that are vibration proof; the separate ground of the power lines and the earth that could be attached to its chassis or leave the customer free to electrically join; and so on.

S-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

S-EVALUATION DEVELOPMENT KIT

The Novasom Industries SBC basic Development Kit are made by one Novasom Industries board (S7C or S8FT) , Micro SD 4GB with SDK and SW demo, power supply wall plug, console cable, instructions to download the latest version of NOVAembed™ tool with BSPFactory™ loaded into a working VM, where everything is installed, configured and nothing additional needs to be done.

Via the user interface, you can turn off two or three cores and limit the memory to meet the same conditions of Novasom S6 or S7.
It’s available also the Extended Development Kit that includes, in addition, an LVDS touch 7” with all needed cables to be directly connected to the Novasom board.

But the most important available thing is our support to help you to start.

Contact us using the tickets in the support section.

Our engineering team guarantees the success of your application installation.

We believe that a good technical support is one of the key of our and your's success. To give you the best services we can, our engineer need to understand your request , may be replicate the probem you ask , and give you a proper and sure answer. In order to do this in a structured way, we use a process and a management tools that will require a minimum process time and proper tools to avoid miss information with " quick email" .

Once logged in you will have the opportunity to choose between "Documentation" and "Cases"

"Documentation" is the section where you can find manuals, application notes and other documentation useful to make your product work. TIP: before opening a case, try to take a look at this section, the resolution of your problem could be at your fingertips.

"Cases" is the section where you can open the real requests for assistance and have a direct contact with our support team. Our target is to help you in the shortest time we can, but our main purpose is to give you a good and proper answer.

Step 6 - Fill the technical support form

A new form will open and you’ll be able to insert the type of request and the type of problem. We ask you to be as precise as possible including, in addition to the problem encountered, and the identification data of the board/product (product number, serial number, DC, order code); in this way we could offer you the best possible support.
After entering all the data, press "Send". The request comes directly to our support team who will try to give you the best assistance in the shortest possible time.
TIP: to make the support as efficient as possible install on your computer Team Viewer, headphones and microphone: they may be useful to communicate with our team.

Move to below step 7

Step 7 - How to see all open Cases (will this be by company or by individual?  If individual you can indicate “your” open cases.)

Step 7 - How to see all open Cases (will this be by company or by individual? If individual you can indicate “your” open cases.)

Pressing "List Case" you’ll have the history of all the open Cases and you will to be able to monitor their statuses, maintain a dialog with our support team and to close once resolved.

Request that once a case is opened you try to maintain a dialog within the case and not start a new case unless it is for a separate “problem” warranting a separate technical investigation.
