06 April 2016, Redwood City, California: Gumstix® Inc., the leader in design-to-order embedded systems, announces its partnership with Toradex to provide support for Colibri iMX6 System on Modules (SoMs) in the Geppetto® Design-to-Order (D2O) platform created by Gumstix engineers. Using Geppetto, Toradex customers can rapidly design and manufacture small form-factor boards tailored to the Colibri iMX6 series of SoMs powered by the ARM® Cortex-A9 family of CPUs, including the NXP®/Freescale i.MX 6 processors.
