Embedded Module TQMa6x Embedded Cortex®-A9 module based on i.MX6 with scalable computing and graphics power.

Arm® Cortex®-A9 based on i.MX6

  • Security Functions
  • IEEE 1588 Support
  • NOR Flash
  • e-MMC Flash
  • Extended temperature range
  • Low power consumption (typ. 4 W)
The Minimodule TQMa6x, based on the processor MCIMX6 from NXP, combines Industry and Multimedia. The integrated graphic controller supports displays with a resolution up to Full HD. Therefore the module is best suited for HMI and animated display screen- and accordingly multitouch applications. With an Arm Corte®-A9 core and a clock rate up to 4 x 1,2 GHz the TQMa6x provides a balanced ratio between performance and power dissipation.
Note about the ordering information: Further variants are available on request.

Starterkit STKa6D set

The core of the STKa6D Set is the TQMa6D module with a Dual Cortex®-A9 CPU from Freescale. The components contained in the starter kit constitute a modular system enabling you to develop your own product ideas. Development of graphic interfaces can be started immediately using the prepared combination of closed display unit and starter kit that are matched to each other. To develop your own hardware you can use the certified and qualified circuit components of the starter kit in your own designs.

Other configurations on request

Further variants with SPI NOR and extended temperature range (-40°C…+85°C) are available as a standard.
