The LH79524 Card Engine is a compact, product-ready hardware and software solution that fast forwards your embedded product design.

The LH79524 Card Engine is a complete System on Module (SOM) that offers essential features for handheld and embedded networking applications. Use of custom baseboards makes the Card Engine the ideal foundation for OEMs developing handheld and compact products. The Card Engine provides a common reference pin-out on its expansion connectors, which enables easy scalability to next generation microprocessor Card Engines when new functionality or performance is required.

Application development is performed right on the product-ready LH79524 Card Engine and software Board Support Packages (BSPs), which enables you to seamlessly transfer your application code and hardware into production.

The LH79524 Card Engine is ideal for applications in the medical, point-of-sale, industrial, and security markets. From patient monitoring and medical imaging, to card payment terminals and bar code readers, to CCTV cameras and intruder alarms, the LH79524 Card Engine allows for powerful versatility and long-life products.
