The eSOMiMX6 Computer-on-Module is based on Freescale’s IMX6 processor. e-con Systems already has dozens of customers in mass production using computer on modules, such as the eSOM3730, eSOM270 and eSOM300.
eSOMiMX6 is a ready to use System-On-Module using Quad, Dual or Solo ARM Cortex™ A9 Processor running up to a speed of 1.2GHz. e-con’s i.MX6 system on module encompasses eMMC Flash whose capacity ranges from 4GB to 64GB and 64 bit LVDDR3 with capacity as low as 256MB to as high as 2GB. eSOMiMX6 is custom micro Qseven® form factor compatible module providing all possible connecting options for Industrial products. e-con’s i.MX6 system on module is available with preloaded Windows embedded compact 2013 BSP, Linux or Android BSP.
“We are proud to launch the eSOMiMX6, the next product of our eSOM family of Computer-on-Modules based on the popular i.MX6 CPU from Freescale within one year from the launch of our eSOM3730. With built-in WiFi/BT and Gigabit Ethernet transceivers, our eSOMiMX6 is a highly integrated SOM and is supported with Windows Embedded, Linux and Android and is available as production-ready. By building the end products based on our SOM, customers can concentrate on their business logic and application development, leaving the tedious and often time-consuming task of maintain platform software on e-con’s shoulder”, said Ashok Babu, President of e-con Systems.
"Customers can also engage with e-con’s in-house team of expert engineers in hardware design, Windows Embedded Compact, Linux and Android to develop the products in a cost-effective way and launch their products in to the market faster than ever before” he added.
The eSOMiMX6 has an operating temperature range of -40ºC to +85ºC making it suitable for products to be used in fluctuating temperature ranging from freezing to higher temperatures. The features of this Computer on module includes Full HD@30fps (1080p) Video encoding & decoding along with 3D graphic acceleration that enables the product to be used in high end graphics application. With inbuilt Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (BLE), eSOMiMX6 enables the product usage for IoT, cloud computing etc. The eSOMiMX6 enables simultaneous streaming of 3 cameras enabling the product usage for 360âÂ° viewing applications.
