Avnet Integrated has added a new compact, cost-effective product family optimized for low power consumption to its portfolio of SMARC 2.0 products: the MSC SM2S-IMX6ULL SMARC 2.0™ module, now available with a price range starting at 25 euros.
The launch of the new module emphasizes Avnet Integrated’s leading role as a manufacturer of innovative embedded solutions, offering a wide range of SMARC 2.0™ modules with scalable processor performance from i.MX6 ULZ to i.MX 8 up to E3900. The broad product portfolio allows a wide variety of requirements to be realized with a single standard platform.
The areas of application for the price-optimized MSC SM2S-IMX6ULL module family are extremely versatile. The module family can be used for applications such as entry-level solutions for HMI systems, IoT gateways, IoT applications, building automation systems and industrial controllers.
Avnet Integrated supports rapid development and easy system integration with complete development tools, such as starter kits and board support packages, as well as with comprehensive services. All innovative embedded modules are manufactured by Avnet Integrated in its own fully-automated manufacturing facilities in Germany.
The MSC SM2S-IMX6ULL low-power SMARC 2.0™ module family can be equipped with an i.MX 6ULL ARM® Cortex™-A7 Base (528 MHz), General Purpose 1 (528 MHz) or General Purpose 2 (528/792/900 MHz) as well as i.MX 6ULZ ARM® Cortex™-A7 Base (528 MHz) processor from NXP®. An on-board pixel processing engine enables processing of 2D images. A display can be controlled via an LVDS interface (1366 x 768).
The module family offers up to 1 GB DDR3L-800 SDRAM and optionally up to 64 GB eMMC Flash for program and data storage. For applications with increased demand for security, a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 can be optionally equipped.
The range of interfaces typical for industrial applications includes 1 x USB 2.0 Host/Client, 4 x USB 2.0 Host, 2 x 10/100 Mbit Ethernet, 1 x MMC/SD/SDI, 2 x CAN, I²S Audio, UART, SPI, and I²C. The board is optionally equipped with a WLAN/BT module.
The compact 82 x 50mm processor modules are designed for operation in the full industrial temperature range from -40°C to +85°C and are fully compatible with Avnet Integrated’s new application-ready SimpleFlex platform.
Avnet Integrated delivers the MSC SM2-MB-EP1 development platform in Mini-ITX form factor and a starter kit for evaluation and quickly starting up the new modules.
