Intel recommended Giada’s SDM (Intel® Smart Display Module) modules, including SDM-Z8350 and SDM-7300U, for smart displays, Intel’s insight.tech has reported recently.
In nowadays, as customers are looking for sleeker, more sophisticated designs for digital signage solutions, displays are getting less bulky, with small or no bezels and ultra-thin profiles. This is helping accelerate adoption of large smart displays in applications such as interactive mirrors.

To help designers and system integrators balance various requirements of modern displays, Intel® developed the Intel® Smart Display Module (Intel® SDM) specification. This allows for new and scalable all-in-one designs that benefit from cost-effective implementation and management of integrated Intel-based processor media players. Its design omits housing, so it can be fully integrated into visual IoT applications like hospitality screens and bedside terminals that require minimal space with maximum performance.
It comes in two sizes: Intel® SDM Small (Intel® SDM-S) measures 60 mm x 100 mm, with a maximum thickness of 20 mm. Intel® SDM Large (Intel® SDM-L) measures 175 mm x 100 mm.
Modules are already available from a number of manufacturers, insight.tech recommended Giada’s newly-launched SDM modules, SDM-Z8350 and SDM-7300U.
Giada offers the SDM-Z8350, an Intel SDM-S module that combines an Intel Atom® processor at up to 1.92 GHz, 2 Gbytes of memory, and 32 Gbytes of flash, said insight.tech.
In its SDM-7300U, Giada combines an Intel® Core™ i5-7300U processor running at up to 3.5 GHz with up to 32 Gbytes of memory in an Intel SDM-L form factor, insight.tech reported.
Giada demonstrated its SDM modules during the SDM Plugfest organized by Intel in Taipei on May 17th, 2018. The two modules stand the mechanical and functional tests of Intel and panel vendors, and perform well, according to Intel engineers who were in charge of test during the activity.
