Giada, a leading developer and manufacturer of embedded PC and motherboards, servers and storage appliances, will present its newly-launched SDM modules following Intel’s new Smart Display Modules specification and reference design at the upcoming ISE 2018 in Amsterdam. The new modules, using a SoC (System on Chip) processor, can fit into the sleekest all-in-one designs as new displays get thinner and power-efficient performance becomes more critical. Next to the new SDM modules, Giada will showcase its latest embedded PC and motherboard products as well as its digital signage solutions. At the show, Giada can be found in hall 8, booth 8-E410.
Giada is a close partner of Intel in the SDM program and initially will launch two SDM modules. A smaller module (109×60mm) with an entry-level processor and a larger module (110×175mm) with a high performance processor. Both SDM modules come without housing and are optimized for digital signage, public kiosks, professional monitors, point-of-sale, projectors, bedside terminals, hospitality, and more applications. They can be applied all around the retail industry, especially on visual retail and transactional and responsive retail. These SDM modules provides display suppliers with an All-in One solution and helps System Integrators and Independent Software Vendors in vertical markets.
Details about the two new SDM modules
1. The smaller module, the entry level SDM Z8350, was announced in Q3 2017. It features an Intel® Atom Cherrytrail Z8350 CPU and up to 2 GB onboard memory. It is equipped with a 32G eMMC and can support two independent displays with a DP port and an HDMI port. The module, with SDM Standard I/O, can support Windows, Linux and Android 5.1.
2. The larger and more powerful SDM-7300U, to be shown for the first time globally at ISE 2018, features an Intel Kabylake Core i5 7300U CPU and supports up to 32GB DDR4 memory. The module, offering an HDMI port, can display video and images with 4k resolution. This module, incorporating high-speed PCIe connectivity with a custom I/O receptacle board, is compatible with Windows and Linux operation systems.
