F&S announced a tiny, wireless enabled “efus A53LS” module that runs Linux on NXP’s QorIQ LS1012A, billed as the world’s smallest 64-bit ARM SoC. F&S Elektronik Systeme has unveiled the “efus A53LS” computer-on-module, which adopts its 62 x 47mm “efus” form-factor, as found in the i.MX6UL based efus A7UL. This time, F&S has tapped what might be considered the i.MX6UL of the 64-bit ARM world: NXP’s 9.6 x 9.6mm QorIQ LS1012A.
When it was announced a year ago, the QorIQ LS1012A was promoted as the world’s smallest and lowest power 64-bit ARM SoC. Following earlier ARM-based QorIQ “Layerscape” SoCs such as the dual ARM Cortex-A7 QorIQ LS1020A, the QorIQ LS1012A is built around a single, 800MHz Cortex-A53 core running at a typical 1W.
