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.

Consuming only 13mA in suspend with a 3.7V Li-Po

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.

New: VAR-SOM-MX6_V2 with up to 64 GB eMMC and enhanced WiFi/BT module including optional Dual Band 2.4 / 5 GHz and MIMO with improved performance and effective bit rates reaching 100 Mbps.
