Customers can now purchase thei.MX 6Dual and i.MX 6Quad single chip system module (SCM), ideal forspace-constrained products which require big processing power andfunctionality. The SCM line of products integrate the i.MX 6Dual or i.MX 6Quadapplications processor, a fully featured power management system, memory andadditional design simplifying components into a tiny 17mm X 14mm X 1.7mmpackage (1GB version)—the size of a U.S. dime.
SCM-i.MX 6Dual/6Quad key features include:
• Dual-coreor quad-core processor
• Powermanagement system
• Overa hundred passive system components
• Designedand enabled for 1 or 2 GB LPDDR2 as a PoP configuration
• Exceptionalvideo and graphics capabilities
• Cryptographiccipher engines
• Enhancedsystem level tamper prevention
• Pincompatibility for ultimate performance flexibility
Cuts your development time by up to 25 percent or more
SCM products are designed to get productsto market 25 percent faster by eliminating high-speed DDR layout and deliveringa proven power delivery network. The i.MX 6Dual and 6Quad SCMs are enabled forDDR memory and combine the performance of NXP’s proven i.MX 6 applicationsprocessor together with a power management integrated circuit (PMIC), flashmemory, and system-level security technology including random number generation,cryptographic cipher engines and tamper prevention.
Eliminates board area by as much as half
The SCM’s ultra-small-but-packedfootprint makes it ideal for highly innovative and disruptive end-productsincluding smart glasses, wearables, next-generation medical equipment, IoTgateway, industrial and portable applications.
Availability and pricing
In addition to the two fullytested, software-enabled SCM dual and quad solutions, a feature optimized QuickStart board enabled for Linux is now available from NXP, and through ArrowElectronics. Additional products in the SCM product roadmap are planned forrelease this year.
NXP’ssoftware/hardware solutions teams and a number of SCM ecosystem partners enablefully embedded component sourcing and enhanced design support to reduce supplychain complexity and overcome development challenges.
