NXP Platinum Partner - Toradex

Apalis iMX6

Highlights

Powered by NXP i.MX 6

Equipped with NXP i.MX 6Q and NXP i.MX 6D SoCs, the Arm Cortex-A9 cores are clocked at 1GHz for commercial temperature variants, while the industrial temperature variant has a peak frequency of 800 MHz.


High-speed interfaces

The module exposes a wide range of industrial interfaces including CAN, UART, I2C, USB, PCIe, SATA, and many more.


Ready for multimedia

With a 3D GPU, h.264 encoder and decoder, the Apalis iMX6 is well suitable for multimedia. MIPI CSI-2, parallel, and Gigabit Ethernet cameras are options for video capture, while for displaying an output you can drive multiple independent screens at once through RGB, HDMI, and LVDS.


Simplified carrier board design

Based on the valuable input of our customers and our engineers‘ in-depth industry expertise, Apalis brings to market many new technologies. Direct Breakout™ considerably simplifies routing of high speed signals on the baseboard. MXM SnapLock™ provides a unique connector mechanism for module fixation. Apalis also comes with support for ready-made passive cooling solutions for the most demanding applications.


Torizon for Remote Updates and Fleet Monitoring

The SoM is available with a tightly integrated Torizon Cloud (formerly Torizon Platform) accelerating the development and maintaining your products. Some key features include highly secure and reliable remote updates, fleet monitoring and remote access.


Toradex Apalis Computer Module Family

The Apalis iMX6 is pin-compatible with the other CoMs in the Apalis family. This allows you to cost-optimize your design with no hardware redesign costs. All of Toradex's Apalis Carrier Boards are compatible with the Apalis iMX6. Extensive product documentation, developer support, service partners and third-party carrier boards build our strong Apalis ecosystem.


Operating Systems

Toradex offers free support and maintenance for Windows Embedded Compact and Embedded Linux on the Apalis iMX6 SoMs. This allows system designers to focus the application instead of focusing on the OS and low-level device drivers. Other OS such as QNX and Android are supported by our partners.

Android

Android on Apalis iMX6 is supported by our service partners Kynetics and Antmicro.


QNX

QNX on NXP i.MX 6-based modules is supported by our service partner Triadem.
