Now with boosted Certified Wi-Fi/BT Module supporting 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n

Just a couple of months after our last announcement, we are once again enhancing the DART-6UL System on Module product line with the launch of the DART-6UL-5G.
The DART-6UL-5G, based on the NXP Cortex-A7 i.MX6 UltraLite family, carries improved features which include a certified Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module with 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n and dual-band 2.4/5 GHz.

With a much faster throughput of the 802.11ac and a more reliable 5GHz support, the DART-6UL-5G is the perfect choice for both Medical and data-intensive IoT applications.

The DART-6UL-5G variants will function in parallel with two successful early variants: The initial i.MX 6UL which were boosted recently by a processing speed grade of 696MHz, as well as the low-power i.MX 6ULL variants. All variants are available at a very competitive price-point which starts at 24 USD.


Fully compatible with further DART-6UL variants, the DART-6UL-5G reflects identical features and interface selection. Small-sized at a mere 25 x 50 mm, maximized price-power, extended temperature range ability of -40 to 85 and a 15-years longevity. Thanks to the broad range of features, the platform can be easily employed in new applications, rapidly gaining ground. These include the Internet-of-Things, embedded systems, battery-operated products and embedded industrial-grade solutions.

Our software suit for the DART-6UL is fully production-ready. We’ve addressed leading platforms including Linux Yocto and Linux Debian to ensure an end-to-end solution that will cut down on development time and resources.

DART-6UL-5G key features include:

  • Optimized size: Only 25 mm x 50 mm x 4 mm
  • NXP i.MX 6UltraLite and 6ULL 528 MHz / 696 MHz ARM Cortex-A7 with optional security features

  • Certified Wi-Fi/Bluetooth 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n Dual Band 2.4/5 GHz
  • Dual 10/100Mbps Ethernet
  • 2D Pixel acceleration engine
  • Display: 24-bit parallel RGB up to WXGA
  • Touchscreen controller
  • Dual USB 2.0 OTG (Host/Device)
  • Audio In/Out
  • Dual CAN, UART, I2C, SPI, PWM, ADC
  • Parallel camera input
  • Industrial temperature grade
  • OS: Linux Yocto, Linux Debian, Android
