Extended temperature Qseven COM runs Linux on Apollo Lake

Oct 3, 2017 — by Eric Brown 240 views

Axiomtek’s “Q7M311” Qseven module runs on Intel Apollo Lake SoCs, and offers 4K and dual displays, -20 to 70°C support, plus PCIe, SATA, GbE, USB, and DP.

Axiomtek’s Q7M311 module joins a growing list of Intel Apollo Lake based computer-on-modules that comply with the 70 x 70mm Qseven form factor (see farther below). Like most of them, this is an extended temperature module, in this case providing -20 to 70°C support. The COM runs Linux or Windows 10 on a dual-core, 1.1GHz/2.4GHz Celeron N3350 or quad-core, 1.1GHz/2.5GHz Pentium N4200, both with 6W TDPs.

The CPU and up to 4GB DDR3L RAM are soldered for extra durability, and there’s an option for 32GB of onboard eMMC. Dual SATA III interfaces are available, as well as an Intel i211AT Gigabit Ethernet controller with WoL and PXE boot support. Dual displays and 4K displays are supported with a DDI (DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI) interface and 18/24-bit, dual channel LVDS, which can be replaced with an optional eDP interface.

The 5V powered Q7M311 is further equipped with 2x USB 3.0, 4x USB 2.0, and 3x PCIe lanes (4x if you disable the Ethernet port). You also get 8x GPIO, as well as SPI, serial TX/RX, I2C, SDIO, HD audio, SMBus, and optional LPC interfaces. A watchdog and hardware monitoring are available, and the module supports the Axiomtek AXView 2.0 intelligent remote management software.


Other Apollo Lake based Qseven 2.x COMs include MSC’s MSC Q7-AL, Arbor’s EmQ-i2401, Portwell’s PQ7-M108, Advantech’s SOM-3569, Congatec’s Conga-QA5, and Seco’s Q7-B03.

Further information

The Q7M311 is available now at an undisclosed price. More information may be found at Axiomtek’s Q7M311 product page.
