In addition, the current data throughput of up to 5 Gigabit/s in line with the USB 3.1 specification serves as a turbo charger for data intensive applications. Based on Intel Atom, Celeron or Pentium processors (codename Apollo Lake), typical applications for SMARC 2.0 designs are handhelds and other mobile devices, in-vehicle devices and stationary embedded and IoT systems with low power and high performance demands.
System integrators can plug their USB-C compliant peripherals in any USB jack available on the board and it works. congatec initially implements USB-C on its new conga-SA5 SMARC 2.0 Computer-on-Module and the new evaluation carrier board conga-SEVAL. The comprehensive USB-C functionalities include USB 2.0, USB 3.1 Gen 1 support with data rates of up to 5 Gigabit/s and the alternate modes for Display Port 1.2 (DP-Alt) and USB Power Delivery (USB-PD) supporting a power envelope of up to 100W. All signals are simultaneously present at the point-symmetric female USB-C connector with 24 signal pins. For the power modes, the solution supports all USB-PD modes as specified by the Universal Serial Bus Implementers Forum (USB-IF). Besides the USB 3.0 compliant mode with 5 V and 1.5 A, it can provide additional voltages of 12 V and 15 V with a maximum current of 3 A and also 20 V with 5 A maximum current.
