Besides heat dissipation and limited space, the biggest challenge in this project was complexity. Multiple USB and Ethernet ports were required, two independent displays were to be supported; both with HDMI® and 4K. A WLAN module, an LTE module and an SSD hard drive were also desired. Flexibility was the top priority here: all types and sizes of displays should be able to be integrated seamlessly.
In close cooperation with the customer, a completely customised carrier board was developed. In combination with our Qseven standard module, we had found the perfect customised solution for the customer's application. Our Solution Architect team was in charge of the development, with strong involvement of the hardware and software departments. The mechanical department was also involved in this project and was able to bring in a customised cooling solution to also meet the request for heat dissipation.
In the end, we were happy to have a satisfied customer: our main goal. Based on the customer's time-to-market strategy, we delivered a cost-effective, fully customised platform with an extended temperature range. Even harsh environmental conditions have no impact on the high reliability of this digital signage solution. This was made possible by strong and experienced project management.
