Braswell SOM is a SolidRun MicroSoM with Intel Braswell Processors
While they are previously known for releasing System on a Module (SOM) products, SolidRun has for the first time announced a first that runs Intel Braswell processors in the form of the Braswell SOM, the first of its kind in the SolidRun MicroSOM family.
Taking up merely 53mm x 40mm, this tiny computer allows you too tap into the power of Intel instead of ARM based chips from the likes of Freescale and Marvell.
Needless to say, with the 14 nm CPUs, the Braswell SOM promises to optimize power usage and provide higher definition graphics thanks to Windows IoT (Internet of Things) support.
SolidRun’s Intel-based System-on-a-module MicroSoM™ system-on-a-module lets you optimize your price/performance sweet spot, supporting a variety of Braswell 14 nm processors, and letting you choose between different memory and storage configurations.
In terms of the processors, you will be able to choose between Intel Atom E8000 or Pentium N3710 but both the variants will come with multiple options of RAM and eMMC storage. These start at a 1GB RAM and 4GB eMMC storage and go up to 8GB RAM and 128GB eMMC storage.
Similarly, you can get 3840 x 2160 pixel or 2560 x 1600 pixel output at 30Hz or 60Hz respectively. Also, the Braswell SOM models support HDMI 1.4b output and DisplayPort 1.1a.
As you can see, these models do not come with fully functional USB, HDMi, and Ethernet ports which is why you will need to up your budget and fix in the SolidPC Q4 – Carrier Board which SolidRun prescribes.
However, all of that will happen sometime later in the future since right now all the Braswell SOM models are listed as coming soon.
