System on Module FETMX6UL -C1 based on i.MX6UL

FETMX6UL-C1 is a commercial grade system on module designed based on NXP i.MX 6UltraLite processor featuring ARM Cortex-A7 kernel with main frequeny of 528MHz. This SoM was integrated all functions of the processor and could be applied in all kinds of embedded solutions. Standard onboard connectors are used for evaluations and tests, which is more conveniently for hardware and software debugging thus to speed up new products to market.

Feature of i.MX 6UltraLite processor

Expanding the i.MX 6 series, the i.MX 6UltraLite is a high performance, ultra-efficient processor family featuring an advanced implementation of a single Arm® Cortex®-A7 core, which operates at speeds up to 696 MHz. The i.MX 6UltraLite applications processor includes an integrated power management module that reduces the complexity of external power supply and simplifies power sequencing. Each processor in this family provides various memory interfaces, including 16-bit LPDDR2, DDR3, DDR3L, raw and managed NAND flash, NOR flash, eMMC, Quad SPI and a wide range of other interfaces for connecting peripherals such as WLAN, Bluetooth™, GPS, displays and camera sensors.


FETMX6UL-C1 CPU Module Size

CPU module dimension: 40mm x 50mm
6-layer ENIC PCB design, and a couple of board-to-board connectors to avoid misplug.
