PicoCOM™A9X is the latest member of the F&S form factor PicoCOM™family
All members of the PicoCOM™ product family are pin compatible and have a robust 80-pole plug connector. At a size of 40x50mm only, PicoCOM™A9X can offer the performance of Cortex®-A9-1GHz at a low price.
The module will be available for 10+ years and is therefore a perfect partner for applications in medicine and industry.
The processor is an NXP i.MX 6SoloX (ARM® Cortex®-A9 and –M4).
SoloX is the second processor in NXP’s portfolio which supports asymmetric multiprocessing. Both cores (ARM® Cortex®-A9 and -M4) are connected to the internal bus fabric and have the possibility to access all peripherals. The advantages of the M4 core are real-time processing and the interfaces are available immediately after power on.
The PicoCOM™A9X offers up to 512MB DDR3 RAM, 1GB SLC NAND Flash and 32GB eMMC, as well as an SD-Card slot interface. Other interfaces are 2x IEEE 1588 Ethernet, 1x USB Host/1x Device, 2x CAN, I2C, SPI, 3x UART, Audio (Line In/Out) and Digital I/O.
An 16/18bit RGB interface is available for connecting displays; a resistive touch panel interface is available as well. A capacitive touch controller can be connected via the I2C interface.
The power supply is 3,3V, the power consumption is 2W typ.
Available operating systems for PicoCOM™A9X are Windows Embedded Compact 2013, Windows Embedded Compact 7 and Linux. For Linux development one can either use Buildroot or Yocto.
The porting of these operating systems on PicoCOM™A9X has been completed by the software department of F&S Elektronik Systeme.
NEON , FPU and OPENGL are available ensuring software compatibility to other i.MX 6 application processors.
