Arrow Electronics is teaming with NXP Semiconductors to create a new and exclusive single-chip system module (SCM) that simplifies the use of NXP’s i.MX 6 applications processor in IoT devices, wearables and smart-home technology, where space is tight, energy is precious and time-to-market is critical. Building on NXP’s DDR-ready i.MX 6SoloX, i.MX 6Dual and i.MX 6Quad SCMs, Arrow’s modules come with pre-stacked LPDDR2 SDRAM, and are ready to use.
This solution takes away the challenges of DDR-integration usually handled by SCM users, and maximizes the SCM’s inherent advantages of power-efficient performance and the integration of up to 100 passive discrete components to help minimize footprint and to simplify and accelerate system design. These SCMs include PF0100 Power-Management IC (PMIC), enabled out-of-the-box for advanced system power management. Additionally, the i.MX 6Dual and i.MX 6Quad SCMs include 16Mbyte of SPI NOR-Flash for additional system integration and security. The pre-stacked modules have compact dimensions of just 14mm x 17mm and 13mm x 13mm.
