EC: ConnectCore for i.MX6UL system on module
Machine & Embedded Control — CNCs, board-level products: Digi ConnectCore for i.MX6UL system-on-module (SOM) is designed for a wide range of demanding applications with secure, pre-certified wireless connectivity in a simple, compact, low-profile, connector-less module. This is a Control Engineering 2017 Engineers’ Choice Awards Finalist.
The Digi ConnectCore for i.MX6UL packs a lot into a stamp-sized module (29 mm x 29 mm x 3.5 mm):
- NXP i.MX6UL-2, Cortex-A7 @528MHz processor
- Up to 2GB NAND Flash
- Pre-certified for 802.11a/b/g/n/ac
- Bluetooth 4.2
- Integrated dual-Ethernet 10/100
- Dedicated security and authentication controller
- Unique low-power and wake-up state management.
System-on-modules, or SOMs, are an affordable way for engineers to quickly enable their products to be smarter and connect to the Internet of Things. SOMs deliver the I/O, memory, and wireless connectivity necessary to connect an industrial control product to the IoT without having to become experts in module design.
Once you’ve connected a device to the Internet you have to make sure it’s secured. The Digi ConnectCore for i.MX6UL was built with Digi TrustFence, a security framework that removes the implementation barriers by providing you with a fully integrated, secure module platform with complete Linux software support.
For many in controls engineering, building complex connected devices from the ground up is not a core competency. Furthermore, fast changing market requirements, global competitive pressures, and ever-changing technology and regulatory requirements make partnering with proven SOM manufacture like Digi, a necessity.
Digi ConnectCore for i.MX6UL delivers the smallest, smartest, most secure way to connect industrial control products to the Internet of Things.
