i.MX 6ULL System-On-Module

 


The Emcraft Systems i.MX 6ULL System-On-Module (SOM) is a cost-optimised compact (31 mm x 51 mm) mezzanine module that combines the NXP i.MX 6ULL power-efficient application processor (Cortex-A7 at 528MHz) with 256 MB DDR3 and 256 MB NAND Flash on a single board. The i.MX 6ULL I/O interfaces are available for a carrier board on two 80-pin interface connectors.

For those customers who have successfully evaluated the i.MX 6ULL SOM and would like to proceed with designing the SOM into embedded product, Emcraft System provides the i.MX 6ULL SOM Design Kit.

The i.MX 6ULL SOM Design Kit is an advanced product, separate from the i.MX 6ULL SOM Starter Kit.

The kit is comprised of the following materials and services:
  • The i.MX 6ULL System-On-Module (SOM) schematics (PDF file only). The package is provided as an advanced hardware material allowing hardware designers to understand subtle points of the SOM implementation and interface.
  • Suggested i.MX 6ULL SOM to baseboard mapping (Excel file). Upon purchase of the kit, you will be able to send a list of I/O requirements for your application to Emcraft. Emcraft will review and return an Excel file with recommended mapping of I/O interfaces from the SOM to your custom baseboard.
  • 1 (one) review of your custom i.MX 6ULL SOM baseboard schematics (SOM interface section only), with detailed comments returned over email.
