SBC AXEL based on NXP/Freescale i.MX6 S/D/Q core


Processor: NXP/Freescale i.MX6 Solo/Dual/Quad core

All-in-one Embedded Single Board Computer

Single Board Computer is a SUCCESS STORY where DAVE Embedded Systems' capabilities have created a complete solution for those customers who want to focus on their unique added value, without investing on deep technology such us embedded linux and HW design.

The SBC platform presented here provides a compact solution for any industry and can be easily interfaced with Plant Automation Control thanks to IEC-61131 SW language environment and/or other plug-ins like QT environment or multimedia GStreamer video applications.

DAVE Embedded Systems' Single Board Computers are the perfect off-the-shelf compact ARM solutions.
This hardware proposal by DAVE Embedded Systems is completed with SW solutions (SoftPLC, QT, RTOS) which permit to reduce overall system cost, and making SBCs ideally suited for deployment into a wide range of cost-sensitive and robust industrial applications.
