MYIR MYS-6ULX is a $25 Single Board Computer based on NXP i.MX 6ULL/6UL Processor for IoT and Industry 4.0

MYIR Tech has released MYS-6ULX single board computer based on  NXP i.MX 6ULL/6UL Cortex-A7 processor designed for either Industry 4.0 with MYS-6ULX-IND model, or the Internet of Things for MYS-6ULX-IOT. Both boards include 256MB DDR3 SDRAM, 256MB NAND flash, USB, USB, Ethernet, LCD interfaces and more, in a compact 70 x 55mm form factor.

“Industry 4.0” Board

Both boards have very similar specifications.

Dimensions70mm x 55mm
PCB Layer8-layer
Power Supply5V/1A
Power ConsumptionAbout 5V/0.25A (single board)
About 5V/0.4A (board + 4.3” LCD)
About 5V/0.8A (board + 7” LCD)
Working Temp.-40°C~85°C0°C~70°C
Target ApplicationsIndustry 4.0IoT

So the main differences between the industrial and IoT versions are the use of i.MX 6UL processor and a wider temperature range for the former, and NXP i.MX 6LL processor and an extra WiFi module for the latter. Both boards run Linux 4.1.15 with Debian or Yocto + Qt images and BSP. The company has also implemented a demo using Amazon Alexa Voice Service available to customers.

MYiR IoT Board

Sample price for the boards is $26.80 for MYS-6ULX-IND, and $24.80 for MYS-6ULX-IOT, which you can purchase directly via the product page together with optional optional 4.3″ or 7″ LCD modules.

iMX6 has great software support, but the chips are just too expensive. MCIMX6G2CVM05AA is an $8 chip. Allwinner A64 is about 20x faster and it is $4. The software and support is far better than Allwinner, but for experienced designers is it worth paying a whole lot more for each production unit?

One decent strategy would be to do a quick run of 1-2K units using an iMX6 part to prove the product concept and lessen the software development load. Then make rev2 of your product on an Allwinner part.

I don’t believe AW has released any industrial temp range versions of their chips. I suspect they could if they wanted to (it is just a change in how they are fabbed) but I suspect that it does not matter to them. iMX6 line is a big player in the automotive market so they have to do industrial temp range to serve that market. If AW tries for autonomous car chips you’ll see industrial range chips from them too. For sure there is a market for systems that work outdoors in all climates, but it is small compared to the… Read more »

Oddly Allwinner English site only considers digital advertising display as industrial and recommends R58 ?

@Jon Smirl Also, I think Allwinner does not commit on any lifetime / support duration (they will just do what they want and EOL their chips without notice, and their OEMs will do the same, which is a no-go for my projects), while NXP does commit on 10 years lifetime and software support. Obviously we won’t see a 10$ i.mx6-based Orange Pi, but apart for those extreme low-cost products I don’t see a 4$ cost difference as the main issue : for industrial products and markets, software quality/support and trust in the SoC vendors (especially about lifetime) is the most… Read more »

And no SOM version. With a possibility of a 4G eMMC
