Variscite introduces a Freescale i.MX6 DUAL 1GHz Cortex-A9 System-on-Module at only 46USD

The VAR-SOM-DUAL small form factor System-on-Module carries an advanced feature-set and broad connectivity options, making it an ideal solution for customers and products in the embedded market.

Staying on-trend with the market’s shift towards a cost-effective highly integrated off-the-shelf solution, the VAR-SOM-DUAL from Variscite levels the playing ground for a broad spectrum of embedded products.

VAR-SOM-DUAL SOMBringing all the benefits of the widely successful VAR-SOM-MX6, the VAR-SOM-DUAL from Variscite carries much smaller dimensions and a slim lined price-point. Features include Freescale’s i.MX6 DualLite 1GHz Cortex-A9, SLC NAND, eMMC, dual band Wi-Fi/BT with MIMO, USB, Gigabit Ethernet, A/V interfaces and industrial operating temperatures.

The VAR-SOM-DUAL utilizes a standard SO-DIMM 200pins interface to the carrier board, fully pin-to-pin compatible with the VAR-SOM-MX6.
