QsevenTM Product Description
QsevenTM modules are off the shelf compact, highly integrated Computer on Module devices which are
designed to connect to a carrier baseboard. The Qseven standard is supported by multiple companies and
defines a standardized square board size of 70x70 mm with s defined interface to the carrier board. The
connection to the carrier board is made with an MXM type edge connector.
Typically a Qseven module includes CPU, chipset, memory, Ethernet controller, BIOS flash, SATA- and
USB controller. Interface controllers or connectors (e.g. RJ45) are implemented on the baseboard on to
which the Qseven module is mounted.
In addition to the power supply also signals for PCIe, SATA, USB, LPC etc. are routed over the Qseven
edge connector.
Thanks to the standardized mechanics and interfaces the system can be scaled arbitrarily. Despite the
modular concept the system design is very flat and compact.
Qseven modules require a baseboard for proper operation.
This manual describes the Qseven Embedded Platform (MSC Q7-MB-EP1), which is a baseboard designed
for small production runs or as a small evaluation platform for Qseven modules.

3.4.1 JILI30 Connector
LCD/TFT displays with support for LVDS can be connected via the JILI30 connector.
Two 24 bit LVDS channels are available on this 32-pin header. Single channel and 18bit displays are also
supported using the appropriate cables.
NOTE: Support of single/dual channel and 18/24 bit will depend on the Qseven module used.

3.4.2 LVDS EEPROM
To store configuration data for the display, a serial EEPROM is connected to the LVDS I2C bus signals LVDS_I2C_CK and LVDS_I2C_DAT.
To avoid conflicts with a configuration EEPROM on the connected display, this EEPROM can be
mapped to an unused address space. The address can be configured using jumper J807. (See section
3.20 Jumper settings)
3.4.3 Backlight Inverter Interface (X802)
The backlight inverter (for CCFL) or LED driver (for CCD) is attached using this 5 pin connector.
The supply voltage (VCC) of the backlight can be selected using jumper J802 for 12V, 5V or 3.3V.
The inverter or LED driver can be turned on or off using the BLON signal. The polarity of the BLON
signal is selected using jumper J803.
The brightness of the backlight is controlled using the VCON signal.
The LVDS_BKLT_CTRL signal coming from the Qseven module normally provides a PWM signal.
Depending on the settings of jumpers J805 and J806 the following brightness control signals can be
applied :
-
PWM signal either inverted or non-inverted
-
Analog signal level derived either from the inverted or non-inverted PWM signal. (The
PWM signal is integrated and then limited to the selected peak voltage of the backlight
inverter).
The peak level of the brightness signal can be selected using jumper J804 to be either 3.3V or 5V.
The maximum brightness (with 0V or with 3.3V/5V) will depend on the Inverter or LED backlight type
used.
