Embedded Artists Unveils iMX RT1064 uCOM with WiFi 5 & Bluetooth 5.1 Module

Embedded Artists have recently introduced iMX RT1064 uCOM system-on-module powered by NXP i.MX RT1064 Cortex-M7 crossover MCU clocked at 600 MHz with 1MB SRAM and 4GB flash on-chip, as well as 32MB SDRAM, and equipped with an optional WiFI 5 and Bluetooth 5.1 module from Murata.

iMX RT1064 uCOM technical specifications:

  • SoC – NXP i.MX RT1064 Arm Cortex-M7 @ up to 600 MHz with 1MB SRAM, 4MB on-chip QSPI flash, 2D graphics acceleration engine
  • System Memory – 32 MB SDRAM
  • Storage – Optional additional 4GB to 32GB eMMC flash and/or SQPI flash
  • Wireless – Optional Murata Type 1ZM dual-band 802.11b/g/n/ac WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 5.1 module based on NXP 88W8987
  • 2x DF40C-100 board-to-board connectors:
    • Storage – 2x USDHC
    • Display I/F – 24-bit parallel RGB up to 1366 x 768 pixels
    • Camera – Parallel CSI
    • Audio – 3x SAI, SPDIF
    • Connectivity – 10/100M Ethernet (requires PHY on carrier board)
    • USB – 2x HS USB 2.0 OTG
    • FlexIO – 2 blocks
    • 2x CAN, 4x I2C, 4x SPI, 8x UART
    • 8-ch 12-bit ADC, 16-ch PWM
  • Misc – Watchdog and RTC, both in i.MX RT1064
  • Power Input – 4-5V DC input
  • Dimensions – 45 x 42 mm
  • Temperature Range – 0 to 70°C or -40 to 85°C

The company provides a FreeRTOS BSP,  as well as an iMX RT1064 uCOM developer’s kit for development.  I understand i.MX RT1064 is very similar to i.MX RT1062 processor found in Teensy 4.1 with the main difference being the 4GB on-chip QSPI flash. Just like with other i.MX RT processor, the solution is best suited for fast applications requiring real-time response with ultra-low latency as well as application processor level of performance.

The iMX RT1064 uCOM module is at the sampling stage and will become broadly available in mid-December 2020. Visit the product page for more details.
