VIA QSM-8Q60 Qseven™ Module

The VIA QSM-8Q60 Qseven™ module is powered by a 1.0GHz NXP i.MX 6QuadPlus Cortex-A9 quad core SoC with advanced graphics and memory performance or a 1.0GHz NXP i.MX 6DualLite Cortex-A9 dual core SoC, delivering the perfect balance of high performance and rich multimedia features in an ultra-compact package for a wide range of embedded system applications such as industrial automation, smart transportation, medical, and infotainment.


The VIA QSM-8Q60 measures 70mm x 70mm and is fully compliant with the Qseven™ Rev. 2.0 embedded form factor standard adopted by the Standardization Group for Embedded Technologies e.V. (SGeT). Supporting a wide operating temperature of -20°C ~70°C, the VIA QSM-8Q60 is designed for optimum flexibility in the harshest environments.

VIA QSM-8Q60 Qseven™ Module

Featuring an on-board Micro SD card slot, 4GB eMMC Flash memory and 2GB DDR3-10666 SDRAM, the module also offers rich I/O and display expansion options including 4 USB 2.0 ports, one HDMI port, one dual-channel 18/24-bit LVDS panel, 3 COM ports, Gigabit Ethernet, 2 CAN bus and PCIe x1.


The VIA QSM-8Q60 features a Linux BSP which includes the kernel (4.1.15) and bootloader source codes for both the NXP i.MX 6DualLite and the NXP i.MX 6QuadPlus SoC based-platforms. Other features include a Tool Chain to help make adjustments to the kernel and to support the VIA QSMBD2 carrier board I/O and other hardware features.

A full set of software customization services that speed up time to market and minimize development costs are also available.


Customers can take advantage of our multi-I/O evaluation carrier board or can utilize VIA’s extensive technical support in developing a custom baseboard.
