April 8, 2015 - Embedian introduces SMARC-FiMX6 computer-on-module that runs a Freescale i.MX6 processor based on the ARM Cortex-A9 architecture with a choice of solo, dual lite, dual or quad-core processors with soldered memory up to 2GB DDR3-1066/1333. The SMARC-FiMX6 targets mobile applications requiring industrial-grade stability and reliability, and supports a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.
The highly scalable SMARC-FiMX6 modules with single, dual lite, dual or quad core Freescale i.MX6 processors cover an extremely wide performance range. Based on the ARM Cortex A9 technology, they support a huge variety of industry standard interfaces, while at the same time providing advanced multimedia and high speed connectivity making it suitable for an almost unlimited number of applications.
SMARC-FiMX6 supports SMARC 1.0 and SMARC 1.1 standards.
The SMARC-FiMX6 is a short size 82 mm x 50 mm module. Each module supports LCD controllers for up to three independent displays (including a 24 bit TTL parallel display, a HDMI1.4a and dual channel, 24 bit LVDS display).
In addition, an 4GB eMMC flash is supported, which can be used as a boot device. The SMARC-FiMX6 features a single Gigabit Ethernet port, one PCIe x1 Gen2 port, MIPI CSI camera interface (4 lanes), three USB 2.0 ports (2x USB host, 1x USB OTG), up to 12 GPIO, one SD/MMC and a SATA 3 Gb/s port. Support is also provided for 2x SPI, 1x SMBus, 1x I2S, 1x S/PDIF, 2x CAN, 4x UART and 3x I2C.
SMARC-FiMX6 is available with the EVK-STD-CARRIER evaluation carrier board for easy integration and design reference. Supplied schematics and layout checklists for carrier board development help develop a carrier board more easily than before. Additionally, Linux YOCTO BSP, test utilities, design utilities, and reference codes are ready for application development and device integration.
