The Intel® SPOSM streamlines product development, supporting sleek designs from multi-display terminals to small tablet-based form factors. The reference design specifies a compute module that supplies core POS functionality, including compute, storage, and voltage regulation. This core module connects to a peripheral interface board (PIB)† that can be tailored to the I/O requirements of various POS designs.
The reference design simplifies signaling by defining a board-to-board (B2B) connector between the compute module and PIB. This connector incorporates 170 pin-outs defined by Intel, with an additional 10 customizable pins available to help OEMs and ODMs differentiate their solutions.
Intel® SPOSM Reference Design Summary
- The Intel SPOSM specification has a dimension of 140 mm x 100 mm, not inclusive of the B2B connector.
- The B2B connector is a 180-pin plug interface with multiple receptacle options.
- The reference design supports optional external I/O and brackets.
- The Intel SPOSM targets processors with Thermal Dissipation Power (TDP) of not more than 15W, and supports passive or active cooling.
† The peripheral interface board (PIB) is not part of the reference design. The PIB specifications provided here are an example of one possible configuration.
