Colibri iMX6ULL

Colibri iMX6ULL is the first Toradex's Computer Module offering on-board Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The Colibri iMX6ULL is a SODIMM-sized SoM based on NXP i.MX 6ULL application processor, featuring a power-efficient Arm® Cortex-A7 core.

NXP Platinum Partner - Toradex

Colibri iMX6ULL

Highlights

Powered by NXP i.MX 6ULL

Equipped with NXP i.MX 6ULL SoCs, the Arm Cortex-A7 single core is clocked at 528 MHz, 800 MHz or 900 MHz depending on the configuration of the SoM.


Power-optimized

The NXP i.MX 6ULL SoC is a power-efficient processor which, in addition to being a single-core, allows for a power dissipation of the Toradex SoM in the order of 0.4W to 1.2W, depending on the system load.


High-performance, pre-certified Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Simplify your design with pre-certified wireless options, counting from the module to the antennas, to increase the predictability of end-device certification processes while enabling significant cost savings. The latest 802.11ac standard and support for multi-antenna setups contribute to a great out-of-the-box end-user experience. These are paired with Bluetooth 5 support to offer state-of-the-art integration for Bluetooth devices.


Toradex Colibri Computer Module Family

Carrier boards designed for the Colibri iMX6ULL are not just compatible between the four Colibri iMX6ULL modules—in fact, they are compatible with the complete Colibri family, including the NXP i.MX 8X, i.MX 7, i.MX 6 and NVIDIA Tegra-based modules. This gives you unmatched flexibility and easy upgradability. To make carrier board design as easy as possible, we provide the Toradex Pinout Designer Tool.


Cost-effective

Colibri iMX6ULL offers a low-cost and power-efficient platform to build a wide range of IoT and embedded devices. It is suitable for headless applications, or static GUIs and light multimedia as low resolution video.


Operating Systems

Toradex offers free support and maintenance for Embedded Linux on the NXP i.MX 6ULL processor based Colibri iMX6ULL SoM. This allows system designers to focus on the application instead of focusing on the OS and low-level device drivers.

Torizon Embedded Linux OS

Torizon is a ready-to-use Linux-based software platform ideal for use in areas like industry and medicine, where reliability is critical. It is a developer-friendly ecosystem that simplifies the process of developing and maintaining embedded software.
