VAR-SOM-MX7 :
NXP/Freescale iMX7

Starting from $35

The VAR-SOM-MX7 is a highly flexible System-on-Module (SoM) based on NXP/Freescale’s i.MX7 family – a 1 GHz Dual-core ARM Cortex-A7™ processor alongside real-time 200MHz ARM Cortex™-M4 co-processor. The VAR-SOM-MX7 provides a variety of interfaces and connectivity options – all packaged at an optimized power, size and cost. The VAR-SOM-MX7 highly integrated connectivity includes a certified Wi-Fi, Bluetooth/BLE, dual Gigabit Ethernet, dual USB, audio, display with touch panel and serial interfaces. In addition, the system supports industrial grade targeting embedded application requiring a wide temperature range.

New: The VAR-SOM-MX7-5G carries improved features which include a certified Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module with dual-band 2.4/5 GHz and 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n.
