Carrier Boards - Apalis Arm Family

The Apalis Carrier Boards support advanced interfaces such as PCIe, SATA, Gbit Ethernet along with many more connectivity and multimedia interfaces. These carrier boards are compatible with all the modules in the Apalis family. The Apalis Evaluation Board, which is ideal for engineering development, is a full-blown board that offers all the interfaces supported by Apalis modules. The cost-effective Ixora Carrier Board, with its small form-factor, can be used for mass-production of end-products based on Apalis modules.
