Freescale i.MX 6, NVIDIA Tegra ARM Computer Modules

 
 

Apalis IconApalis is a new computer module architecture which aims at seamlessly complementing the very successful Colibri computer module family with a number of high speed and graphics interfaces, allowing Toradex customers to further expand their market reach.

The Apalis specification has been developed from in-depth research into diverse existing and emerging technologies. While primarily aimed at supporting ARM based devices such as the NVIDIA® Tegra™, Freescale® i.MX™ and Texas Instruments® OMAP™ families, this specification is specifically designed to be device and chip architecture independent. The objective is to ensure future proofing of the interfaces, benefiting customers by providing for long product lifecycles and the ability to continue to offer access to leading edge technologies without compromise.
