    I would like to buy .MX6q SABRE Lite Board, I can use Freescale Quad Core Cortex A9 i.MX 6Quad Application Processor, but the Freescale dual lite Core Cortex A9 i.MX 6 dual lite Application Processor is better to me.

    please tell me the price and shipping time and the technical descriptions to me.

      I would also like to buy one, but it does not appear to be for sale to the general public yet. You seem to represent a company. If you want one, you should contact Freescale. They must have offices or distributors in Beijing.

      Btw, the English version of your website does not work (in Firefox).

    @ Dirk
    The SABRE Lite and Nitrogen6X appear to be the same board. See http://www.cnx-software.com/2012/02/29/boundary-devices-unveils-nitrogen6x-freescale-i-mx6-development-kit-aka-i-mx6q-sabre-lite/

    But I still can’t find it listed on Arrow website.

    Regarding Arrow: It might be


    Regarding “SABRE Lite and Nitrogen6X appear to be the same board”: Yes and no ;) The SABRE Lite and the Nitrogen6X are mainly the same boards, they are “SW compatible”. But: Have a look to the picture above (which shows the SABRE Lite) and the picture at the bottom of


    which shows the Nitrogen6X. The Nitrogen6X is slightly larger, the connectors are at different places and the Nitrogen6X seems to have an additional optional TiWi 802.11 b/g/n WiFi+BT.

    @ Dirk
    OK, fair enough. They are not the same… :)

    Both are designed by Boundary Devices, so I wonder why they have 2 very similar boards.

    $299 is a bit more expensive than I expected.

    The board is now also available for purchase for $299 on Boundary Devices website using Revision 1.0 of the silicon (used for development) http://boundarydevices.com/products/sabre-lite-imx6-sbc/

    Shipping is not included and can be very expensive (106 USD to Thailand via UPS). The total cost (board + shipping + taxes) would be around 560 USD.

    Schematics, BOM, layout files and documentation for the board are available on the Support tab of the link above.

    Boundary devices will also sell an i.MX6 SOM soon. Schematics (PDF) are available @ http://boundarydevices.com/nitrogen6X_SOM_cpu.pdf

    I’ve also seen a cheaper 199 USD board (NIT6X) will be available in July/August on Arrow website. http://components.arrow.com/part/detail/53356543S5550N3849

    The differences between Nitrogen6X are listed in this post:

    In a nutshell, we built the Nitrogen6X for customers who can actually use this in production. We placed all of the connectors along one edge. If you look closely at SABRE Lite you’ll see that the connectors are placed on all four sides to keep the total size down, and that really prevents any reasonable enclosure.

    And since we couldn’t help ourselves, we added a Wi-Fi/Bluetooth option, which introduced a couple of very slight software incompatibilities. Nitrogen6X will boot software written for SABRE Lite, but tweaks are needed for ethernet and analog audio to function properly.
