iMX6 SMARC SOMSolo, DualLite, Dual, & Quad Core iMX6 SOMs

Overview

The SMARC iMX6 SOM is based on NXP Semiconductors iMX6 family of processors with ARM Cortex-A9 at speeds up to 1.2 GHz.

The family offers industrial performance in a small form factor and features different combinations of RAM and Flash memory, a complete list of interfaces and peripherals, 2D/3D graphics acceleration, and video acceleration. Our developer’s base board is the fastest way to test the application before the prototyping phase, and in many cases gives a jump start on base board design.

Applications

  • Home & Building Automation
  • Machine Vision
  • Connected Vending Machines
  • Industrial Control
  • Test and Measurement
  • Human Interface
