Embedded Module TQMa6ULxL Energy efficient and future oriented Cortex®-A7 LGA module based on i.MX6UL and i.MX6ULL.

Arm® Cortex®-A7 based on i.MX6UL and i.MX6ULL

  • Long-term availability
  • Security Functions
  • Camera Sensor Interface
  • Low power consumption (typ. 1 W)
  • 2x Ethernet with IEE1588
  • Extended temperature range
The Minimodule TQMa6ULxL, based on the i.MX6UL and iMX6ULL from NXP, combines the Arm® Cortex®-A7 core technology with a variety of interfaces. The LGA module has been developed especially for the use in high volume projects. The integrated graphics controller supports applications with display and touch screen requirements. TQMa6ULxL is best suited for various applications such as industrial automation and controls with requirements for low power and secure data processing.
There are three CPU variants available. With a Single Cortex®-A7 core and a clock rate up to 528 MHz the TQMa6ULxL provides a balanced ratio between applications for visualization and control performance and power dissipation. All the processor’s functional pins are on the LGA pins. Note about the ordering information: Further variants are available on request.
