Compulab provides support for mainline Linux, the Yocto Project, and an RTOS via full Board Support Packages (BSPs) and ready-to-run images. Its feature set, low cost, and small size make the UCM-iMX93 suitable for building and industrial control, medical devices, IoT gateways, and measurement equipment.
The company also offers a development kit based on the SB-UCMIMX93 carrier board with Gigabit Ethernet, USB ports, MIPI CSI and LVDS display interfaces. a MIPI CSI camera interface, a mini PCIe socket for optional 4G LTE connectivity, RS485 and RS232 serial interfaces, CAN Bus, and more.
The development kit ships with a 1.5GHz UCM-iMX93 system-on-module with 2GB RAM, 32GB eMMC flash, a 5-inch WXGA LCD with capacitive touch panel, WiFi antennas and cables, a serial port cable, a USB cable and adapter, and a 12V power supply. A full carrier-board design package with schematics, BOM, and PCB layout is provided with the kit, so customers can easily build their own carrier board.
Compulab is selling the UCM-iMX93 system-on-module for $39 and up depending on options, while the full development kit goes for $385. Availability of the module is guaranteed until at least 2038. More details, including technical documentation and pricing information, can be found on the product page.
