AXEL Lite - i.MX6

Processor: NXP/Freescale i.MX6

AXEL LITE is the new top-class Single - Dual - Quad Core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU module by DAVE Embedded Systems, based on the recent NXP/Freescale i.MX6 application processor. Thanks to AXEL LITE, customers have the chance to save time and resources by using a compact solution that permits to reach scalable performances that perfectly fits the application requirements avoiding complexities on the carrier board.

The use of this processor enables extensive system-level differentiation of new applications in many industry fields, where high-performance and extremely compact form factor (67,5 mm x 45 mm) are key factors. Smarter system designs are made possible, following the trends in functionalities and interfaces of the new, state-of-the-art embedded products. AXEL LITE offers great computational power, thanks to the rich set of peripherals, the Scalable ARM Cortex-A9 together with a large set of high-speed I/Os.

AXEL LITE enables designers to create smart products with the best quality/price ratio.

  • Unmatched performances thanks to Single/Dual/Quad Core @ 1.2 GHz
  • All memories you need on-board
  • Boot from NOR for safe applications
  • Enabling massive computing applications thanks to wide range DDR3 RAM memory up to 2GB (For 4GB support please contact sales department)
  • Reduced carrier complexity: SDIO, dual CAN, USB, Ethernet GB and native 3.3V I/O
  • Multiple video outputs available
  • H264 Video encoding and decoding
  • Multiple video inputs available

Thanks to the tight integration between the ARM Core-based processing system, designers are able to share the applications through the multicore platform and/or to divide the task on different cores in order to match with specific application requirements (thanks to AMP it is possible to create applications where RTOS and Linux work together on different cores).AXEL LITE is designed in order to keep full compatibility with the LITE Line CPU modules, for designs where quality and reliability are important factors. AXEL LITE is suitable for high volume applications where the price/quality ratio is important such as Home Automation.
