ADLINK Releases LEC-iMX6 embedded computer

December 9, 2014 – ADLINK Technology introduced LEC-iMX6,  a SMARC (Smart Mobility ARChitecture) form factor computer-on-module (COM) running a Freescale i.MX6 processor based on the ARM Cortex-A9 architecture with a choice of dual or quad-core processors running from 800 MHz to 1.2 GHz with soldered memory up to 2GB DDR3L-1066/1333. The LEC-iMX6 delivers good performance with efficient power consumption that targets mobile applications requiring industrial-grade stability and reliability, and supports a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C..

The SMARC form factor is a versatile, ultra-small footprint COM defined predominantly by ADLINK and Kontron and approved by the SGET (Standardization Group for Embedded Technology) consortium. SMARC is an open and global standard for a new generation of embedded applications featuring low power, low cost and high performance, taking advantages from both legacy x86 and ARM-based designs. ADLINK has previously released SMARC modules with ARM-based cores (LEC-3517), as well as x86 platforms (LEC-BT). The low power design of SMARC allows for passive heat dissipation and enables smaller, quieter and cleaner systems.

The LEC-iMX6 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, an HDMI1.4a and single channel, 24 bit LVDS display).

An optional eMMC flash (from 4GB to 64GB) is supported, which can be used as a boot device. The LEC-iMX6 features a single Gigabit Ethernet port, one PCIe x1 Gen2 port, MIPI CSI camera interface (2 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. The module comes with a U-Boot boot loader and supports multiple operating systems.

The LEC-iMX6 is designed for portable or small stationary systems with application scenarios for industrial automation and testing and measurement, and is especially suited for systems requiring high performance graphics in mobile applications. LEC-iMX6 modules can operate in a wide temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. Commercial grade temperature SKUs supporting 0°C to +60°C operation are also available. Paired with ADLINK’s SEMA (Smart Embedded Management Agent) Cloud device-to-cloud platform that enables remote monitoring, control and management, the LEC-iMX6 is an ideal building block for developing IoT devices with a secure connection to the cloud.
