Colibri iMX6

The Colibri iMX6 is a SODIMM sized computer module based on NXP®/Freescale i.MX 6 SoC. The module targets a wide range of applications, including: Medical Devices, Navigation, Industrial Automation, HMIs, Avionics, Entertainment system, POS, Data Acquisition, Thin Clients, Robotics, Gaming and much more. It offers a wide range of interfaces from simple GPIOs, industry standard I2C, SPI, CAN, and UART buses through to high speed USB 2.0 interfaces and a 16/32bit external memory bus (parallel bus). The HDMI interface makes it very easy to connect large, full HD resolution displays.

Colibri iMX6

Highlights

Powered by NXP i.MX 6

Equipped with NXP i.MX 6DL and NXP i.MX 6S SoCs, the Arm Cortex-A9 cores are clocked at 1GHz for commercial temperature variants, while the industrial temperature variant has a peak frequency of 800 MHz.


Ready for multimedia

With a 3D GPU, h.264 encoder and decoder and an integrated ISP, Colibri iMX6 is well suitable for multimedia. parallel camera interface and USB 2.0 cameras are options for video capture, while for displaying an output you can drive dual displays through RGB and HDMI.


Rugged and reliable

Colibri iMX6 can withstand severe shock, vibration and temperature conditions. It is therefore ideal for a wide range of applications, including Industrial Automation, Medical Devices, Test and Measurement, Specialty Vehicles, Transportation Building Automation and much more.


Toradex Colibri Computer Module Family

The Colibri iMX6 is pin-compatible with the other CoMs in the Colibri family. This allows you to cost-optimize your design with no hardware redesign costs and also be future-proof. All of Toradex's Colibri Carrier Boards are compatible with the Colibri iMX6. Extensive product documentation, developer support, service partners and third-party carrier boards build our strong Colibri ecosystem.


Operating Systems

Toradex offers free support and maintenance for Windows Embedded Compact and Embedded Linux on the Colibri iMX6 SoMs. This allows system designers to focus the application instead of focusing on the OS and low-level device drivers. Other OS such as QNX and Android are supported by our partners.

Android

Android on Colibri iMX6 is supported by our service partners Kynetics and Antmicro.

QNX

QNX on NXP i.MX 6-based modules is supported by our service partner Triadem.
