The Qseven (Q7) standard is specifically designed for embedded mobile applications and integrates all core components of a common PC onto the extremely compact board. The Qseven board is mounted onto an application specific carrier board to offer customer-specific requirements. Dimensions are 70 mm x 70 mm with a maximum of 12 watt power consumption. Heat dissipation is kept at a minimum and fan-less operation possible. A robust and cost-efficient 230 pin MXM connector is used to connect the Qseven module with the carrier board. This MXM connector is a well-known high speed signal interface connector that is commonly used for high speed PCI Express graphics.
