Ultra Low Power System on Module

The SoM-iMX6U from EMAC is an Ultra Low Power System on Module (SoM) designed to plug into a carrier board that contains all the connectors and I/O required for a system. The recommended development/carrier board for the SoM-iMX6U is the SoM-150. A SoM is a small embedded module that contains the core of a microprocessor system.

Linux operating system

The SoM-iMX6U is based on an industrial temperature, Freescale/NXP i.MX6 UltraLite (MCIMX6G1) Cortex A7 528 MHz system on module with 512MB of LP DDR2 RAM, 4GB eMMC Flash and 16MB of serial data flash, which allows it to run the Linux Operating System. The module has APM Sleep Mode of 3.5mA, 1x 10/100 BaseT Ethernet, 4x serial ports, 2x USB 2.0 ports, 22x GPIO (3.3V) lines, 1x SDIO SD port, 2x I2S audio ports with line in/out, 1x CAN, 1x SPI, 1x I2C, 2x timer/counters/PWMs and internal real-time clock/calendar (with external battery backup), External reset button provision and green Status LED.

Shorter product development times

The SoM approach allows clients to develop a product using a commercial off the shelf (COTS) development/carrier board for the proof of concept or production units. If the product or project has specific dimensional, I/O or connector placement requirements, a semi-custom carrier board can be created in as little as a month. Using the SoM approach, product lifecycle concerns for the processor, memory and other SoM based components are minimized.
