Arrow packs NXP’s i.MX 6 series application processors with memory

New Products |
Arrow Electronics has teamed up with NXP Semiconductors to create an exclusive single-chip system module (SCM) based on NXP’s i.MX 6 applications processor, pre-stacked LPDDR2 SDRAM.

The device 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, only available from Arrow, measure just 14x17mm (i.MX 6Dual and i.MX 6Quad SCM) and 13x13mm (i.MX 6SoloX SCM), with LPDDR2 SDRAM attached. In the case of the i.MX 6SoloX SCM, a configuration with eMMC and LPDDR2 SDRAM is available. Three temperature grades are available, specified for 0 to 85°C, -40 to 105°C, or -30 to 85°C, allowing use in a wide range of consumer and industrial products.

Customers can specify the i.MX 6 with up to four ARM Cortex-A9 cores running at speeds up to 800MHz to satisfy a wide range of application-processing demands, and they can also take advantage of i.MX 6 features that support sophisticated connectivity, multimedia or HMI functionality. Further support for developers includes evaluation boards that make design starts fast, easy and affordable. All software and firmware needed to start application development is also provided, including board-support package stacks validated for Yocto Linux and Android.
The modules are delivered as fully tested and software-enabled platforms, supplied and supported by Arrow through its international network of sales offices and field applications engineers.
