Powered by NXP® i.MX 6: i.MX 6 DualLite and i.MX 6 Solo Processors

The Colibri iMX6 is a SODIMM sized computer module that comes in both dual core and single core versions with CPUs based on NXP (formerly Freescale) i.MX6DL and NXP i.MX6S SoCs respectively. The Cortex A9 dual core and single core CPU peaks at 1 GHz for commercial temperature variant, while the industrial temperature variant has a peak frequency of 800 MHz.

The Colibri iMX6 incorporates DVFS (Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Scaling) and Thermal Throttling that enable the system to continuously adjust operating frequency and voltage in response to changes in workload and temperature to achieve the best performance with the lowest power consumption.

Suitable for wide range of Industrial Applications

The NXP (formerly Freescale) i.MX 6 based Colibri iMX6 System on Module targets a wide range of applications, including: Industrial Automation, Medical Devices, Test and Measurement, Specialty Vehicles, Transportation Building Automation 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.

Easy Performance Upgrade

This module is a member of the extensive pin-compatible Colibri family. Its easy to scale performance and price with Modules such as the Colibri iMX6ULL, iMX7 or iMX8X.

The Colibri iMX6 System on Module encapsulates the complexity associated with modern day electronic design, such as high speed impedance controlled layouts with high component density utilising blind and buried via technology. This allows the customer to create a carrier board which implements the application specific electronics generally being much less complicated.
