- USB – 1x USB 2.0 OTG micro-USB connector, 2x USB2.0 hosts, and up to 3x USB2.0 host via a 100-mil header.
- Storage – full-size SD socket (precludes WiFi/BT module)
- Serial Interfaces – 1x serial debug port (micro USB) or 1x serial debug port via RS232 transceiver, and Up-to 2x UART, 3.3V levels, 100-mil header
- Other I/Os – SPI, I2C, GPIO and ADC via 100-mil header
- Misc – Real time clock operated from on-board coin-cell battery
- Power Supply – Unregulated 8V to 15V
- Dimensions – 160 x 136 x 22 mm
- Temperature Range – Commercial: 0° to 70° C; Extended: -20° to 70° C; Industrial: -40° to 85° C.
Compulab CL-SOM-iMX6UL system-on-module will be available in November 2015 starting at $29 in 1K orders, while SB-SOM-iMX6UL carrier board will start at $81 for the commercial temperature range version. You can find more details, including pricing for various options and quantities, on Compulab’s CL-SOM-iMX6UL and SBC-iMX6UL product pages.
