Below is our press release for our i.MX6 solutions, i.e., kits and boards.
emtrion GmbH, a company specialised in Embedded Systems design, hardware and software, Freescale Proven Partner, announces the availability of a new industrial processor module based on the multicore Cortex-A9 i.MX6 SoC family from Texas Instruments. This new module, called DIMM-MX6, extends the emtrion DIMM family and offers a full electrical and mechanical compatibility with the other modules of the emtrion DIMM series. emtrion guarantees the availability of its new module for at least 10 years.
The DIMM-MX6 module from emtrion brings high computing capabilities with up to 10.000 DMIPS, multiple NEON SIMD and VPFU co-processors at a low power level, without requiring any active cooling system.
The DIMM-MX6 module is available in several versions, with either i.MX6 Solo (1 core), Dual (2 cors) or Quad (4 cores) and on-board memories ranging from 512MB up to 8GB for the Flash (SLC NAND) and from 512MB up to 2GB RAM (DDR3). The new module is also qualified for an extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.
In addition to boards and kits, emtrion offers support for a broad range of operating systems, board support packages (BSP) as well as engineering services. The DIMM-MX6 is available now with a BSP for Linux, that will be followed by additional BSP for Windows Embedded Compact 7 (WEC7), for QNX 6.5 and for Android 4.0.
The BSP are available together with a developer kit. Each developer kit includes a DIMM-MX6 industrial module, a base board, a display and a development environment. All parts are mounted together and programmed by emtrion. The kits are shipped ready to use.
