Rugged SMARC module runs Linux on i.MX6

2014-Dec-11 | Tags: COMembeddedfreescale

Linux on ARMAdlink unveiled an “LEC-iMX6″ SMARC COM built around Freescale’s i.MX6, with up to 2GB soldered DDR3L and 64GB eMMC, plus -40 to 85°C temperature support.

The LEC-iMX6 is designed for portable — or just plain small — industrial automation, medical, testing and measurement, transportation, and digital signage applications. Like most embedded vendors this year, Adlink uses the IoT acronym, and here it actually seems to fit.

As with Adlink’s first SMARC computer-on-module — the TI Sitara AM3517 based LEC-3517 — the LEC-iMX6 uses the 82 x 50mm “short” version of the form-factor. However, its feature set is more similar to Adlink’s full-size LEC-BT SMARC COM, which is based on an Intel Atom E3800 system-on-chip. Not surprisingly, the LEC-iMX6 is also similar to the only other Freescale i.MX6-based SMARC module we know of — Kontron’s similarly short-sized SMARC sAMX6i COM.
