SOM

 

i.MX 6SoloX System-On-Module

 


The Emcraft Systems i.MX 6SoloX System-On-Module (SOM) is a compact
(32 mm x 59 mm) mezzanine module that combines an NXP dual-core heterogeneous (1 GHz Cortex-A9 and 227 MHz Cortex-M4) application processor with 512 MB DDR3, 512 MB NAND Flash and a 1Gb Ethernet PHY on a single board. The SOM interfaces to a carrier board using two 100-pin interface connectors.

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

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

The kit is comprised of the following materials and services:
  • The i.MX 6SoloX 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 6SoloX 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 SOLOX SOM baseboard schematics (SOM interface section only), with detailed comments returned over email.
