Press Release efus™A9X
NXP i.MX 6SoloX Processor on COM Form factor efus™ by F&S Elektronik Systeme
At the beginning of 2014, F&S Elektronik Systeme introduced its new form factor efus™ (easy – functional – universal – small).
In contrary to the Qseven standard, which uses the same plug connector, efus™ was designed consequently for ARM processors. It also allows a base board with four layers only.
The NXP i.MX 6SoloX Processor with Arm® Cortex®-A9 and Cortex®-M4 cores of efus™A9X offers many acceleration functions (OpenGL) for fluid display images, enabling animations like on your smartphone or tablet.
efus™A9X is compatible to efus™A9 and offers up to 1 GB RAM, 1 GB SLC NAND Flash and 32 GB eMMC. Available interfaces are 2x Gigabit-Ethernet, 2x USB Host/Device, 2x CAN, 2x I2C, 2x SPI, 4x UART, GPIOs, 2x SD-Card, I2S or AC97 for Audio, PCIe, as well as analog and digital camera.
Displays can be connected via digital RGB and LVDS (up to WXGA). A resistive as well as a capacitive touch controller can be connected via the I2C interface. A WLAN/ Bluetooth module with chip antenna or antenna socket can be placed optionally.
F&S Elektronik Systeme has performed a radio examination (with chip antenna), involving only little effort for the final radio approval in the user’s system. Power supply is 5V, the power consumption is 2W (typ.).
efus™A9X will be available for at least 10 years. Another highlight is the favorable price from Euro 39,- (depending on features and quantity, plus tax).
efus™A9X is available with the operating systems Windows Embedded Compact 7, Windows Embedded Compact 2013, Linux (3.14.38). Under Linux one can use either Buildroot or Yocto for their development.
The F&S Elektronik Systeme software department has ported all of these operating systems on efus™A9X and the F&S engineers are always there for support.
F&S Elektronik Systeme supports its customers with the F&S project guarantee: we are at your side from the project start until the successful completion of the project. Starter kit, workshop, documents for hardware and software development and free support by our experienced engineers complete the comprehensive F&S support.
efus™A9X can be purchased directly at F&S Elektronik Systeme or at one of their worldwide distributors.
