System-on-a-Chip (SoC)

SoM compliant with SMARC 1.1 specification

SXoM-C5 is a complete System-on-Module (SoM)

compliant with the SMARC (Smart Mobility ARChitecture) 1.1 specification by SGET.
The board is designed to function as the system core of modular platforms for
high-performance DSP applications.

Low Power

The core of SXoM-C5 is an Altera Cyclone V SoC (System-on-a-Chip)

that combines a Cyclone V FPGA fabric featuring up to 110K logic elements with an ARM-based dual-core hard processor system running at up to 925 MHz.
