OpenEmbed SOM6360 is a $69 Freescale i.MX6 SoloX System-on-Module

Apart from UDOO Neo development board, which is currently shipping Kickstarter backers, I hadn’t seen many Freescale i.MX 6SoloX based hardware so far. But Shenzhen OpenEmbed has now launched a system-on-module powered by Freescale Cortex A9 and Cortex-M4 SoC with their SOM6360 CPU module.

OpenEmbed SOM6360 Rev. A computer-on-module specifications:

  • SoC – Freescale i.MX 6SoloX ARM Cortex-A9 core @ 1GHz with ARM Cortex-M4 Core @ 200 MHz, and 2D and 3D multimedia accelerators
  • System Memory – 512MB DDR3L (1GB optional)
  • Storage – 4GB to 32GB eMMC flash, 32MB QSPI  flash
  • Video Input/Output
    • 18-bit digital RGB
    • 24-bit LVDS (up to WXGA)
    • Analog/digital camera interface (YUV4:2:2 CCIR-656)
  • Connectivity – 2x Gigabit Ethernet interfaces (2x on-board AR8033 PHYs)
  • Other I/Os via 2x 120-pin connectors:
    • 1x USB 2.0 host, 1x USB 2.0 device
    • 5x serial,2x CAN 2.0
    • 2x I2C, 2x SPI
    • 2x SDIO
    • PWM
    • Optional 12-bit ADC
    • PCIe 2.0
  • Misc – Watchdog
  • Power Supply – 5V
  • Dimensions – N/A

The company did not list any operating systems for the module, but we can probably safely assume Linux will be supported on Cortex A9, adn MQX on Cortex-M4. I did not find any carrier board for the module either, and I did not received an answer to my email requesting further details.

OpenEmbed SOM6360 SoM should start shipping this quarter, and sell for about $69 per unit in 100 pieces orders.More details will hopefully surface on the company’s SOM6360 product page (very slow website). If you are looking for a Freescale i.MX 6SoloX CoM, you could alternatively check out eFus A9X module with similar specifications, and an extra optional WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0 chipset.

    Maybe there are not so many SoloX boards because of the upcoming I.MX7 which provides also an M4 core at 200Mhz but more efficient dual A7 cores.
    There are also the Freescale Vybird SoCs with M4 cores at very lower cost.
    I think the only major thing missing on the I.MX7 and Vybrid would be the 3D GPU.
