Extremely Low Power Mobile Multimedia Computer-on-Module
Industry type:PC and software
Product model number:ROM-7421
Advantech Co., Ltd.
award 3

Designed for ultra low power consumption multimedia devices, ROM-7421 is a compact, highly integrated RISC–based computer-on-module following the Qseven 2.0 Specification.

(1) Next generation Cortex-A9 platform: Performance is 60% better than before and its power consumption is 50% less. The lowest power consumed in suspend mode is only 15mW—1/10 of a x86 platform. The optimized circuitry inside the SoC improves the processing capability of the CPU and the GPU, and it supports better and improved 2D/3D performance and video encode/decoding.

(2) Wide temperature and fanless design: Supports operating temperatures from -40 to 85℃. Due to its low power consumption, it can operate without system fan and heatsink with a chassis temperature only 60℃ at ambient room temperature. It has a reduced noise of only 0dB, which conforms to the strictest regulations for medical and military.

(3) Strong Multimedia support: ROM-7421 has three independent display capabilities. Play mode can be defined by software and the highest resolution is up to dual 1920x1080. It also contains one MIPI camera interface for real-time camera and video capture. With high multimedia processing ability, it efficiently encodes, analyzes, and stores the video/graphics and enhances the use of graphical data.

(4) Modulized platform: ROM-7421 follows the QSeven 2.0 standard to fulfill all customized demands by integrating I/O to various carrier boards.

(5) Innovative PMIC Usage: Uses TI TPS659114 PMIC for high level power management. With optimized PMIC firmware, it combines multiple functions including power management, real time clock (RTC) and Watchdog Timer (WDT) in one IC, and reduces power consumption to the lowest ever.
