Baseboard with miniPCIe, CAN, USB OTG and Camera

The Tarion baseboard (carrier board) addresses these requirements and is especially designed for modules of the DIMM family.

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.

Key features:

  • 10/100BaseTx Ethernet
  • miniPCIe
  • USB2.0
  • SATA
  • LCD Interfaces (RGB, LVDS, HDMI)
  • RGB Interface for EDT Display family
  • Camera
  • CAN
  • Operating Temperatur: -20°C bis +80°C

Choose the right developer kit from our versatile compilation for a quick start into your application development.
