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.
Both boards have very similar specifications.
|SoC||NXP i.MX 6UltraLite (MCIMX6G2CVM05AA) with an ARM Cortex A7 processor @ up to 696 MHz and 2D graphics accelerator||NXP i.MX 6ULL (MCIMX6Y2DVM05AA) with an ARM Cortex A7 processor @ 528 MHz and 2D graphics accelerator|
|256MB (support up to 2GB)|
|NAND Flash||256MB (support 512MB/1GB)|
|eMMC||DNP (Do Not Populate – Reserved design for optional 4GB flash)|
|USB||1x USB Host, 1x micro USB OTG|
|Micro SD Card||1x Micro SD card slot|
|Buttons||1x Reset Button, 1x User Button|
|1x Power Indicator, 2x User LEDs|
|LCD Connector||24-bit RGB LCD & Touch Screen (50-pin FPC connector)|
|Debug Connector||2.5mm pitch 3-pin Headers, TTL|
|Expansion Headers||Two 2.0mm pitch 2x 20-pin headers with 1x Ethernet, 8x UARTs, 4x I2C, 2x CAN, 4x SPI, 8x ADC, 4x PWM, 2x I2S, 1x 8-bit Camera, 1x JTAG, up to 46x GPIOs|
|WiFi Module||–||USB based, 2.4GHz, IEEE 802.11b/g/n standards|
|Dimensions||70mm x 55mm|
|Power Consumption||About 5V/0.25A (single board)
About 5V/0.4A (board + 4.3” LCD)
About 5V/0.8A (board + 7” LCD)
|Target Applications||Industry 4.0||IoT|
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.
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.
