Home Products System On Module (SOM) Cortex-A9 VAR-SOM-MX6 - Freescale i.MX6

VAR-SOM-MX6 CPU: Freescale iMX6

Starting from $52,

The VAR-SOM-MX6 sets the bar for unparalleled design flexibility.

Supporting the i.MX 6 Quad/Dual/DualLite/Single core ARM Cortex-A9, the VAR-SOM-MX6 allows designers to use a single System on Module in a broad range of applications to achieve short time-to-market for their current innovations, while still accommodating potential R&D directions and marketing opportunities. This versatile solution’s -40 to 85 °C temperature range and Dual CAN support is ideal for industrial applications, while 1080p video and graphics accelerations make it equally suitable for intensive multimedia applications
