Variscite Introduces the Smallest Freescale i.MX6 Quad Cortex-A9 System-on-Module

TEL AVIV, Israel -- Measuring only 20mm x 50mm, the DART-MX6 from Variscite is the smallest System-on-Module (SoM) supporting Freescale's i.MX6 quad and dual core ARM Cortex-A9™ processor. The DART-MX6 offers impressive performance and scalability. Together with optimized power consumption this miniature sized SoM is ideal for portable and battery operated embedded systems.

The DART-MX6 highly integrated connectivity includes dual band Wi-Fi/BT with optional MIMO, dual USB, Gigabit Ethernet, PCIe and A/V interfaces. Furthermore, the system supports full -40 to 85 industrial operating temperatures. Performing as the DART-MX6 carrier board, the VAR-DT6CustomBoard completes an attractive full reference kit, which can be used for customers' evaluation, development and end-product mass production.

Key features of the DART-MX6 include:

• Miniature size: 20mm x 50mm x 4mm
• Freescale i.MX6 800MHz Quad/Dual ARM Cortex-A9
• Up to 1GB LP-DDR2 and 32GB eMMC
• Certified Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n 2.4/5GHz with optional 2x2 MIMO
• Bluetooth 4.0/BLE
• Full 1080p video encode/decode capability
• Vivante GPU 2D/3D graphics accelerator
• Display: 2x LVDS, HDMI1.4, MIPI DSI
• 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet
• USB 2.0: Host, OTG
• PCIe
• Audio In/Out
• Camera inputs: MIPI CSI, parallel
• Dual CAN, UART, I2C, SPI
• Industrial temperature -40 to 85 °C
• OS: Linux Yocto, Android
