The SBC-iAM is a standard mini-ATX compliant, single board computer. It is implemented by a CM-iAM module providing most of the functions, and a SB-iAM carrier board providing connectors and several additional functions. The rich feature set of the SBC-iAM is customizable according to the price / performance targets of the user's application.

The SBC-iAM contains expansion connectors which opens it to the wide range of standard peripheral cards. Wide input range switched power supply is compatible with requirements for telecom and automotive applications.

For feature support status, please refer to See O/S Support Coverage Map .
  • The "SB Option" column specifies the P/N code of the SB-iAM carrier board required to have the particular feature. The "CM Option" column specifies the P/N code of the CM-iAM required to have the particular feature. SBC-iAM content is the combination of features provided by the attached CM-iAM and the features implemented on the SB-iAM. To have a particular feature, both the CM and SB options of that feature must be implemented.
  • "+" means that the feature is always available, regardless of P/N code.
