Variscite, a leading design and manufacturer of embedded solutions and System-on-Modules, announces the launch of the enhanced VAR-SOM-MX6_V2 System-on-Module. The already hugely successful VAR-SOM-MX6 has been upgraded to support on-board 64GB eMMC and the latest and most advanced WiLinkTM 8 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth combo module from Texas Instruments.

Based on Freescale’s i.MX6 single/dual/quad Cortex-A9 core, the VAR-SOM-MX6_V2 packs an impressive feature-set, a wide variety of interfaces and industrial operating temperature range, all the while sustaining a firm focus on minimizing the overall system cost.

VAR-SOM-MX6-V2 SoMThe VAR-SOM-MX6_V2 suits embedded applications across a multitude of market segments, such as automotive, IoT, lighting, agriculture and industrial. The new V2 enhanced connectivity features are based on TI’s FCC/CE certified dual band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n with optional MIMO and Bluetooth 4.0 / BLE that can achieve effective bit rates of 100 Mbps, together with an extended wireless range.
Variscite’s customers can easily utilize the VAR-SOM-MX6_V2 with its on-board eMMC for products requiring flash-based memories in high densities reaching up to 64GB.

The new VAR-SOM-MX6_V2 is fully pin-compatible with the previous VAR-SOM-MX6 Rev 1. Both revisions will continue to be in mass production supporting Variscite’s longevity commitment for the entire product portfolio.
