Testing SMARC 2.0 modules

October 26, 2017 // By Julien Happich
SMARC stands for Smart Mobility ARChitecture. It is a specification published by the Standardization Group for Embedded Technologies e.V. (SGET) for computer-on-modules (CoMs). Its advantage is the low power consumption of the modules due to the implemetation of ARM or other low-power processors.

Yamaichi Electronics´ SMARC test adapter is an impedance controlled test system according to the SGET SMARC specification. It is durable and highly reliable as a contact system. As it is volume test ready it can increase the test output considerably. Thus it reduces the cost per tested module. Furthermore its operation is easy and secure. This test adapter within the YED900 series of Yamaichi Electronics´ test adapter series can be used for applications like evaluation bench tests, module programming and reliability tests from -30 up to +85°C.

The socket is designed with compression mount technology (CMT), therefore no soldering is needed. Selected materials like aircraft aluminum, PEEK and ceramic PEEK make the adapter robust. The test adapter can be used as “plug and play” suitable test vehicle. The life time for the SMARC test adapter is specified up to 50k mechanical cycles.
