iMX6Q is too hot about 85 C

Hi all,

we designed Custom SOM using imx6q processor  by following saber design files

when subway surf game (android game app, requires 1Ghz speed) is loaded,  imx6q die temperature reaches 85 C within 15 min.

It is reduced to 40 C immediately after closing this game app.

we also used heat sink,in this case  it is around 76 C (10 hrs continuous test under ambient temperature 22 C).

let me know how to reduce the die temperature when processor runs at its maximum frequency of 1 Ghz/1.2Ghz

both in software and hardware ?

r anyone faced this much die temperature..? is it normal..?

Thanks,

Tamilarasan

Hi

Have you try to run subway surf game on SabreSDB or other Freescale hardware?

This will provide useful information.
