Ultra Compact iMX7 COM module for battery- or portable applications

Measuring only 27x37mm and equipped with NXP’s dual-core Cortex-A7/Cortex-M4 based i.MX 7Dual processor, lots of on-board memory and a very efficient Power Management IC from ROHM.

Embedded Artists’ latest iMX7 Dual uCOM Board only measure 27 x 37 mm – but is a very powerful platform! It is equipped with NXP’s dual-core Cortex-A7/-M4 based i.MX 7Dual processor, lots of on-board memory and a very efficient Power Management IC from ROHM. The board is perfect for battery-powered portable devices where space and power consumption are importnat parameters. The board is also suitable for a wide range of industrial applications that requires advanced communication, real-time control and graphic displays.

The module has low-power focus:

  • Very power efficient
  • On-board LP-DDR3 memory,
  • ROHM’s PMIC has high conversion efficiency over a wide range of loads
  • On-chip battery charger

The heterogeneous system architecture enables the system to run an OS like Linux on the dual-core Cortex-A7 and a Real-Time OS (RTOS) on the Cortex-M4:

  • clear separation of real-time tasks from general server and graphical related processing
  • can save power if the Cortex-M4 core performs preprocessing before the more power hungry Cortex-A7 cores are activated

Use the iMX7 Dual uCOM Developer’s Kit to get up-and-running quickly with the board.

Many companies are today using COM modules and the reasons are very obvious.

  • You can focus on your core business.
  • You shorten your time-to-market.
  • You lower your risk and cost.
