The SMARC Carrier Board CSM-B79 is a full featured carrier board for SMARC Rel. 2.0 compliant CPU modules.

This carrier board can be used with any SMARC Rel. 2.0 compliant module without incompatibilities and/or loss of functionalities. The board has been specifically designed for taking advantage of all possible features that can be offered by x86 and/or ARM architectures on SMARC modules.

CSM-B79 has been developed most of all as a development board to explore the possibilities offered by SMARC modules, but it could also be a good solution for low volumes production for companies that do not want or need to develop customised carrier board.
