We have a new i.MX283 / i.MX287 SODIMM sized SOM, the CFA-10036:


Here are the features that set this module apart:


  • Debug/Console OLED, 128x32 pixels, I2C interface
  • microSD socket to allow huge non-volatile storage at low cost
  • microUSB connector supplies power and console through gadget driver
  • i.MX283 version: 128MB DDR2, 91 GPIO
  • i.MX287 version: 256MB DDR2, 126 GPIO
  • Only a single 5v supply is needed
  • Support included in Linux 3.7 mainline kernel
  • Open software, fully documented hardware


This module has a very low cost of entry. At the minimum level, all you need to use it is the module itself and a standard microUSB cable.


We also have a debug/prototyping board that adds wired Ethernet and USB A connectors, as well as a generous prototyping area:




For the initial production we have this as a project on Kickstarter:


CFA-10036 Open, Hackable, Linux + ARM Embedded GPIO Module
