Direct Insight makes full schematics of the baseboard available in order to facilitate development of a custom baseboard by customers. StartketKit-5 baseboard is pin-to-pin compilable with all Freescale modules (i.MX5 to the latest i.MX6 SoM) manufactured by the company, and system-on-modules based on Freescale have a 10-year-plus lifetime.

TRITON-TX6Q modules should be available in Q1 2013 at an undisclosed price, but as reference TRITON-TX53Q modules cost 155 GBP per unit (~$250 US), and the StartkerKit-5 baseboard is available for 745 GBP (~$1200 US) without display.
