Baseboard with GbE, PCIe, USB OTG and mSATA - Mini-ITX Format

The emCON Bvari carrier board is a high-end mini-ITX form factor baseboard, especially designed to suit all of emtrion's emCON-family CPU modules perfectly.

It has fully featured interfaces and supports high speed interfaces like PCI Express, Mini PCI Express, mSATA, USB3.0, HDMI and even 1000Base-T Ethernet, as well as common industrial low speed interface like CAN, UART, I²C and SPI.

The board dimensions are designed according to the mini-ITX form factor, so it fits a wide range of standard cases if required.

emtrion can easily modify it customer-specifically for the use in series production.

If you prefer developing your own baseboard, you are very welcome to use its schematics as a reference design to quickly develop your ideal solution.
