Artila Releases New Linux-ready Cortex-A7 System on Module M-X6ULL
Artila Electronics has introduced the new SODIMM module based on NXP i.MX6ULL ARM Cortex A7 CPU core operating up to 800MHz speed with Linux OS.
The new M-X6ULL is designed to meet the needs of many general embedded applications that require power efficient, high performance and cost optimised solution, as well as embedded systems that require high-end multimedia applications in a small form factor, this cost effective M-X6ULL is ultra-compact in size with the form factor of 68 x 43 mm. In addition, M-X6ULL has 200-pins connectors to allow extension of more I/Os for peripheral signals like two 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, LCD, CAN, UART, USB, SD and I2C.
Linux kernel 4.14 is pre-installed on the eMMC and the PREEMPT_RT patch provides a unique solution when real-time interactive interfaces and connectivity are crucial requirements. The M-X6ULL equips 24-bit digital parallel display interface supports resolution up to 1366 x768 and the touch controller can support 4-wire and 5-wire resistive touch panel which brings powerful touch-screen performance to the embedded users.
Artila team provides Comprehensive software packages such as PHP, Python, Perl, Node.js and Node-RED which are available for free, and users can find the updates from Artila repository by using apt-get command. Moreover, Artila offers another solution to reduce the material cost, customers could choose a light version of M-X6ULL with the removal of eMMC and with a micro-SD socket replacement is available by request. The M-X6ULL system on module is integrated with512MB DDR3 SDRAM and 4GB eMMC, which is ideally suitable for the cost & power optimized general embedded and industrial applications. The major target applications of this module are Industrial HMI & Access Control, IOT gateway, Industrial control & automation and Test and measurement.
